AWC is the only gate valve supplier that manufactures and services its valves entirely in the USA. Our superior products and extensive oilfield experience ensure that AWC valves represent the latest generation of ball-screw valve technology.

AWC’s frac valves are widely used by specialized well-control companies and are the preferred valves of many shale-play operators.

More than 7,500 AWC frac valves have been deployed during the last 10 years and we currently supply several hundred valves to operators throughout North and South America, the Middle East and the North Sea.

Innovative process

When quality and availability of service matter most, AWC, part of Archer, has you covered.

AWC’s frac valves utilize a hammer-forged valve body that begins as a dense, homogenous block of high-quality U.S. steel. This process vastly improves body integrity, minimizing the risk of failure. Other production techniques result in bodies that are less dense and prone to internal defects.

AWC manufactures all of our frac valves in compliance with the latest API-6A specifications. Frac valve components and manufacturing processes are traceable and the chain of custody is fully documented.

Availability of service after the sale and over the life of the frac valve is a critical aspect of efficient oilfield operations and the total cost of ownership of our customers’ equipment.  AWC understands this and is ready and able to completely service our frac valves at each of our strategically located service facilities.
