About Valv-Trol

Our rich history and the people on our team are what make the Valv-Trol difference


Highly regarded for easy service and the most efficient use of interchangeable parts

Valv-Trol manufactures high pressure and low pressure valves, including 2-way valves, 3-way valves, check valves, and relief valves, for use in water hydraulic systems and other applications.
In addition, many engineers specify Valv-Trol Valves for oil hydraulic systems because Valv-Trol’s positive shut-off eliminates leakage inherent in other types of valves. This, in turn, reduces pump and system requirements.
The pilot operators for Valv-Trol Valves may be either pneumatic or hydraulic, depending on the operating requirement. Valv-Trol manufactures valves in standard diaphragm-operated models with ports to 4″ pipe size and standard pressure ratings to 3500 or 4000 PSI (240 or 280 Bar). Optional pressure ratings of up to 30,000 PSI (2070 Bar) are available in many sizes. Piston-operated valves with port sizes up to 10” are available on special order.
Valv-Trol Valves are known for being the most durable and easy-to-service.

These specialized capabilities include:


1947—The Valv-Trol Company is founded in Akron, Ohio—the “Rubber Capital of the World”—by Robert E. (Bob) Ingram, Deloss O. Brown, and A. Dee Grover. Valv-Trol sets up their first shop in a small rented building. They saw a need in the rubber molding industry to manufacture and repair VALVES and CONTROL components. Thus, the name VALV-TROL is born.

Valv-Trol developed and built their first valves for regional molders, and supplements the business by repairing and calibrating pressure gauges, thermometers, mechanical timers, and various other small controls used in the industry.
Valv-Trol continues to design new Water Hydraulic Valves to fill the needs of forging and die-casting companies and customers with a wide range of custom requirements. Valv-Trol takes advantage of new materials and heat treatments to better resist corrosion and erosion, thus increasing valve life in difficult and dirty operating conditions.
