Sulphur, Louisiana

Sulphur, Louisiana

The Sulphur facility was originally founded in 1970 under the name Plant Specialties. The main goal of this location was to fill a need in the immediate community to provide quality industrial valve repair and service. Over time, the facility has grown to more than 100,000 square feet under roof with nearly 100 employees and in addition to providing valve repair and refurbishment services, now also manufactures some of Furmanite’s OEM valve products and equipment.

Wilson-Snyder Switch and Control Valves

Furmanite, the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) for Wilson-Snyder has been manufacturing dependable switch and control valves for “Coker” applications since the early 1930’s. Coker service is one of the most brutal services that any valve can be installed in and the Wilson-Snyder valves have been exceeding our customer’s expectations for the last 70 plus years. Wilson Snyder valves are available in sizes ranging from 4″ through 14″ and can be manufactured up to 18” upon request. The valves are designed in accordance with ANSI B 16.5, B 16.20, B 31.3, and are available in 300, 600, and 900 classes. Wilson Snyder valves can also be manufactured in “Non- ANSI” for special approved applications in class 300, 600, and 900 ratings.

Valves

As well as offering a full range of Valve Repair Service to our customers, Furmanite also manufacturers a range of valves under the Wilson Snyder brand and maintains relationships with a number of other valve OEMs.
