If you haven't ordered our new Valve Product Solutions catalog, click the links to the right to order your copy now! We've added new valves to our offering and enhanced our valve manufacturing capabilities to provide an upgraded portfolio of products and faster delivery times.

Our valve offering includes a comprehensive line-up of standard bore and large bore needle & manifold valves, including block and bleed valves in hard or soft seat/tip designs with ratings up to 10,000 psi. Our innovative valve design is patented for exceptional performance and increased pressure capabilities. We have also introduced new valves and valve options such as 3-valve double block & bleed needle valves and meter manifolds.

Due to increased and streamlined manufacturing capabilities, we have significantly reduced delivery times and enhanced inventory levels, while continuing to deliver premium quality backed by exclusive 3-year warranties.

NOSHOK leads the industry with our stringent requirements to ensure the performance of our valves by 100% helium leak testing every valve to 1 X 10-4 ml/s before it leaves our factory.

We are also among the first in the industry to offer zinc-nickel plating as standard on our carbon steel valves. Zinc nickel is an alloy which provides exceptional corrosion resistance and long-lasting durability. Other benefits of zinc-nickel plating include increased deposit hardness, extended wear resistance and longer service life. ZnNi plating is WEEE and RoHS compliant. All NOSHOK valves are made in the U.S.A..

NEW! 3-Valve Double Block & Bleed Needle Valves, Hard Seat

Hi-res image
More Info

The 3070 Series valves are a new addition to our product line, and have a 10,000 psi hard seat pressure rating
@ 200 °F.

The block valve isolates the downstream process fluids, and the bleed valve exhausts upstream fluids enabling instruments to be removed without disturbing the permanent piping installation on the bottom. The 1/4" NPT vent plug is located 90° to the left and may be removed and replaced with exhaust piping to direct the fluids or gases to a safe location.

They are backed by an industry-leading 3-year warranty.

2-Valve Meter Manifold Valves, Soft Seat

The 2180 Series Meter Manifolds are another new product in our offering, and are designed for use on flow recorders in metering systems. They can be configured in 2-valve, 3-valve and 5-valve designs, depending on the application requirements. Their soft seat design provides a 6,000 psi pressure rating 200 °F.

These manifolds feature a replaceable Delrin® seat and straight through porting for bidirectional, high capacity flow and easy roddable cleaning. A blow-out proof stem provides a secondary stem seal in the full open position. An FKM o-ring seal and PTFE back-up ring below the stem threads protect from corrosion and galling. PTFE packing is optional.

They are also backed by a 3-year warranty.

Diagram of well

Hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, is a process used in nine out of 10 natural gas wells in the United States, where millions of gallons of water, sand and chemicals are pumped underground to break apart rock and release gas. These materials are injected at high pressure down and across into horizontally drilled wells as far as 10,000 feet below the surface. The pressurized mixture causes the rock layer to crack. These fissures are held open by the sand particles or other viscous materials so that natural gas from the shale can flow up to the well.


Pressure transmitters play a critical role in the hydraulic fracturing process to monitor pressure at different stages in remote data monitoring vehicles including fracturing pumps, blending units and storage tanks.

NOSHOK offers a portfolio of pressure measurement solutions which are ideal for these applications, providing extreme high pressure ranges and exceptional accuracy for pump protection and control operations.

These transmitters are available in explosion-proof, ATEX-approved explosion-proof and intrinsically safe versions with G1B or G1/2B connections, offering a flush diaphragm connection that protects against plugging. These configurations are designed for measuring viscous fluids and are ideal for measuring pressure when fluid is pumped down the well.





An alternative option is available using a standard NOSHOK transmitter with NPT connection. Any standard NOSHOK NPT transmitter with internal diaphragm can be assembled with a Type 20 front flush welded diaphragm seal to convert from an internal diaphragm to a flush Diaphragm. This package requires a very small footprint and protects against plugging in viscous media applications such as sand, drilling mud etc.

  Tech Tip
Q: What is the difference between a transducer and transmitter?
When these terms originated there was a distinctive difference between the two.
A transmitter was referred to as an instrument with a current output signal (i.e. 4 mA to 20 mA) and a transducer was referred to as an instrument with a voltage signal (i.e. 3 mV/V, 0 Vdc to 10 Vdc etc.). As time has progressed these terms are now commonly interchanged for reference to current, voltage and digital output signals.
