Increase Reliability and Efficiency
Cook Compression is an innovator in the design, manufacture and application of compressor valves. From precision-crafted metal plate valves to the latest high-performance designs with non-metallic internals, we offer solutions for any reciprocating compressor in any type of service.
Cook Compression manufactures complete valve assemblies, as well as plates, discs, rings, buttons, poppets, damper plates, spring plates, leaf springs and other metallic and non-metallic components for any make or model valve.
From the creation of the original radiused-disc Manley® valve to the extreme reliability of the patented MOPPET® valve, Cook Compression has pioneered developments in valve designs and materials that yield meaningful improvements in performance.
Our highly qualified in-house engineering teams use sophisticated 3D CAD modeling, linear and non-linear finite element analysis (FEA), computerized valve dynamics simulation and other proprietary engineering tools to design high-performing valves for your application needs.
Our expert staff includes engineers with compressor OEM experience, as well as materials scientists.
In addition to custom-engineering the products we make, Cook Compression can provide engineering services for valve analysis, upgrades and conversions.
Manley® valves, featuring radiused thermoplastic elements, set the standard for valve reliability and performance. They are used in a broad range of applications, including at high pressures and in dirty or wet service.
Whether in hydrogen, ethylene, polypropylene, flare gas or dirty natural gas, MOPPET® valves provide unmatched durability and proven efficiency.
Cook Compression’s Optima™ Series plate valves are custom-engineered for optimum performance in air and process gas compressors, and can replace any OEM plate valve.
Protect equipment from reverse flow in the discharge pipework from reciprocating compressors. Cook non-return valves are robust non-slam valves designed for pulsating flow.
Cook Compression manufacturing facilities use the most advanced automated equipment, including state-of-the-art CNC lathes, mills and laser metal cutting systems. Laser profiling and proprietary processes ensure stress-free metallic plates and discs.
We also perform in-house injection molding of thermoplastic components. To ensure the purity and performance of finished parts, we use only 100% virgin material of the highest quality base resins.
