APPLICATIONS

SEDCO has been a leader in the design and manufacture of valves for numerous applications. The primary focus has been on Pressure Relief Valves for Hermetic Compressors (sometimes called IPR Valves) and Automotive A/C Systems (sometimes known as HPRV's). The common denominator, regardless of the application, is SEDCO's ability to design and manufacture highly reliable valves.

We welcome the opportunity to work with you on your most difficult gas or fluid control problems. Be they Safety Critical applications such as our proven Relief Valves, or simple valves that allow flow in one direction, but not in another. SEDCO can design and manufacture a cost efficient valve to meet your needs.

And, when required, SEDCO can individually test each valve and validate that it functions per your specifications. This can be done for 1,000 or 10,000,000 valves. Send us your application requirements and allow us to provide you with a valve solution.

There is a handy Selection Guide that you can quickly and easily complete and e-mail directly to our Sales Department. One of our Sales Engineers will respond promptly to your request. Or, attach your prints or specifications as file attachments, and e-mail them to us for immediate review (we work with AutoCAD 2014 and all Microsoft Office compatible programs).

Vehicle Manufacturers are demanding lower energy consumption systems for improved fuel economy to meet ever increasing CAFÉ standards; SEDCO valve solutions can improve system efficiency. Environmental regulations are pushing for Low Global Warming Potential (Low GWP) refrigerants; SEDCO has developed valves for these new high-pressure systems. Consumers increasingly are looking for advanced technologies; always with demands for lower costs and higher reliability.

See how SEDCO can help you meet these challenges.

Regulations for lower emissions and higher fuel economy are driving changes in vehicles today. SEDCO valves can help with incremental improvements in existing internal combustion engines (ICE), as well as advancements with electrified powertrains and with emerging technologies like hydrogen fuel cell vehicles.

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) require improvements to existing systems, such as antilock braking and traction control; SEDCO can help you improve solutions to meet the new demands. As we move toward fully autonomous vehicles, SEDCO can work with you on your most difficult design challenges.

Commercial Vehicles (CV) require hundreds of thousands of miles of reliable service. SEDCO can help to improve robustness and reliability of existing systems in the most demanding applications. In addition, SEDCO can help design the systems necessary for the future of commercial vehicles. Not unlike passenger cars, CVs must achieve lower emissions and higher fuel economy. SEDCO valves can help with incremental improvements in existing internal combustion engines (ICE), as well as advancements with electrified powertrains.

Be it braking systems, steering systems or other hydraulic systems; SEDCO can help to improve performance and reduce costs.

Some of the most demanding pneumatic and hydraulic valve applications are associated with Off-Highway vehicles. Engines, transmissions, power take-offs (PTO), steering, and braking systems all have unique demands for valves. Heavy construction or agricultural equipment valve solutions must be specifically engineered for each application. SEDCO can help to improve performance and reduce costs.

Numerous off-road applications can benefit from SEDCO valve solutions:

  • Motorcycles and ATVs
  • Residential and Commercial Lawn and Garden Equipment
  • Marine and Aviation Applications

SEDCO manufactures numerous products requiring a high degree of production efficiency and extremely meticulous attention to product quality and reliability. Some of those products include Check Valves, Regulator Valves, and Thermal Relief Valves. Each of these products is specifically designed for your application requirements.
