American Cone valve has been designing and building cone valves for over 25 years, with installations throughout United States. The company was founded in 1996 by experienced employees of the former Allis Chalmers Valve Division (AC Valve), one of the foremost leaders in the cone valve industry.
American Cone Valves are manufactured exclusively by A/C Service and Repair (ACSR). ACSR has extensive experience repairing cone valves, worldwide, and consults for many cone valve users, engineers, and manufacturers. Working together, American Cone Valve and ACSR have the combined experience and manufacturing skills to produce the most dependable cone valve in the industry. Our design combines the best features of previous cone valve suppliers and utilizes the most effective materials to manufacture and provide the highest quality cone valve on the market. The design and quality workmanship that goes into our products make American Cone Valve highly recommended and frequently specified by customers and engineers.
American Cone Valves are available in sizes 6”- 36”, with standard working pressures up to 250 psi and greater. Cone valves are used primarily as pump check (shutoff) valves, but are also used in other applications requiring full port waterway openings and metal seats. Full port waterway openings provide lower head loss and reduced energy costs. Cone valves also serve as excellent throttling valves. The valves can be operated manually, with hydraulic cylinders and controls, or with electric actuators. Actuators are mounted to an operating mechanism, which is designed to lift, turn, and squeeze the metal seats for tight shut off. The lift/turn mechanism provides positive seating with minimal wear of the metal seats. This unique design enables the valve to function effectively for many years in service. The simplicity and efficiency of a cone valve, plus its many operating advantages, make this valve outstanding for a wide range of applications.
