Optimized Plate Valve Performance

Optima™ Series plate valve assemblies and internal components are bespoke solutions for air and process gas compressors, as well as compressors in refrigeration, marine, locomotive brake, and specialty applications.

Application-specific engineering together with precision manufacturing produces plate valves that enhance compressor availability, solve chronic valve problems, and reduce overall costs of operation.

Custom-Engineered Replacements for OEM Valves

Optima Series plate valves are interchangeable with valves supplied by original equipment manufacturers. Unlike ordinary replacement parts, however, Optima Series valves and components are custom-engineered to deliver maximum value in operation.

Valve assemblies are manufactured to any specification, with minimal sizing limitations and a wide range of design options, including:

  • Central or frictionless guides
  • Damped or undamped design depending on application
  • Helical coil or plate / leaf springs
  • Metallic or thermoplastic materials
  • Combination, concentric or non-return (check) valve designs


  • Drop-in replacement plate valve assemblies and internal parts
  • Custom engineering for optimum performance
  • ISO 9001:2015 certified manufacturing centers
  • Advanced design and material options
  • Highly experienced valve engineering staff
  • Sophisticated valve dynamics simulation, 3D CAD modeling, linear and non-linear FEA
