About VA-CON

Service and Technology

VA-CON possess a workshop facility where we can assemble, test, calibrate, service and repair most makes of Actuators and Quarter-turn Valves. No item /product ordered, leaves our premises without first being thoroughly checked and tested. In addition, we have on CD a Valve / Actuator Torque Sizing Data Programme for most Quarter-turn Valves manufactured in the world today. Given the correct operating parameters, accurate actuator sizing can be done at the click of a mouse. Allied to the Sizing Program above, we also have an extensive Chemical Compatibility Program which enables us to choose the correct body and seal materials for valves in even the most difficult process applications In order to adequately service our customers, both Emerson in Johannesburg and VA-CON (Pty) Ltd in Durban carry a substantial stock-holding of commonly used products.
