In 1997 D. E. Rice Companies purchased Panhandle Valve, Fabrication and Machine (PVFM) from Phillips 66 Petroleum Company. Under both ownerships PVFM has over 60 continuous years of experience remanufacturing petrochemical service valves. With over 36,000 square footage of shop, office and warehouse space, Panhandle Valve Fabrication & Machine is located on 15 acres at 1400 S. Hemlock in Borger, Texas.

PVFM’s core business is the remanufacturing of petrochemical service valves in assorted metallurgies and trims including standard trim, stainless steel, NACE, Monel and Hastelloy.

As part of its remanufacturing process PVFM has a fully equipped Machine Shop with the latest technology in Micro Processor welding, Positive Metallurgy Identification (PMI), hardness testing and thickness testing.

The PVFM remanufacturing process is geared to produce valves that exceed original manufacturer’s standards. We do this by following precise procedures outlined in our Quality Control / Quality Assurance manual and by meeting applicable API, ASTM, ASME and ANSI standards. Each and every PVFM remanufactured valve is tested according to API 6D (Pipeline) standards and carries the same warranty as a new valve. Only OEM or OEM certified parts are used in the remanufacturing of PVFM valves. PVFM warehouses a large array of remanufactured valves that are ready to ship or we can remanufacture and return a customer owned valve. The manufacturer, or a manufacturer-approved facility, remanufactures certain valves, such as plug, Twin Seal and Orbit, for PVFM. Valves that are not remanufactured onsite at PVFM are brought into our facility and subjected to the same quality control and testing as the valves remanufactured in our shop and carry the same warranty as newly manufactured valves.

In addition to remanufactured valves, PVFM carries in stock, or can source, a wide variety of new valves.
PVFM also offers services such as valve installation, actuator adaptation and mounting, onsite valve maintenance, valve inventory management, onsite valve repair (through qualified sub-contractors), new code vessel fabrication, pipe and DOT fabrication, boiler and code vessel repair, non-destructive examination service, and structural steel and piped skid fabrication.
