Australian Pipeline Valve (APV) was established in 1989 as a specialist manufacturer of quality valves and pipeline products for oil & gas as well as petrochemical, power generation, mining, process and general industrial applications. The cornerstone of APV is quality and service. We focus on clients who require a high quality, technologically advanced product as well as comprehensive documentation and certification. APV manufactures a broad range of American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and American Petroleum Institute (API) compliant valves including gate, globe and check valves. We also offer a large range of quarter turn valves including floating and trunnion ball valves in soft and metal seats, lubricated and lined plug valves as well as butterfly valves in lined and high performance types. To complete the range, APV also manufactures a selection of complementary products such as actuators, gearboxes, strainers and sight glasses. In addition to our Australian facility capabilities, APV valves are produced by reputable approved manufacturers in Korea, Taiwan, China, Spain and Italy. APV has numerous processes and quality management strategies in place to specify, manage and oversee the valve manufacturing, certification, witness testing, approval, documentation, authenticity and through life support of the final product.
As a long term oil and gas specialist, we have also been supplying APV oilfield valves and chokes since 1989.
APV corporate philosophy is to bring to the market new
and innovative valve designs with a special emphasis on
quality, safety, ease of operation, simple in-line maintenance and most of all, long service life. All this combined with the use of high quality materials and advanced manufacturing technology ensures the highest possible quality at a competitive price.
APV is strongly committed to increasing our market position and competing in all countries around the world. The company’s impressive growth over the past 20 years is testimony to its strong competence in research, design, production and marketing with a firm determination to maintain its position as a short lead time, high quality manufacturer in the valve industry, today and in the future.
APV is controlled by valve experts and our accredited subcontractors are technologically advanced. We are an independent privately-owned entity able to respond much quicker than major manufacturers while ensuring a much higher level of attention to detail.

EXTENSIVE PRODUCT LINE
One-Stop Valve Supplier
APV offers one of the most comprehensive ranges of valves. From the most common application to the most severe, APV has a solution. We produce gate, globe, check, ball, plug and butterfly valves in conventional and engineered severe service configurations in sizes up to 1500mm (60”) and for services up to ASME Class 4500.
Built to Order in Short Delivery
Our valves are available with a near endless selection of body materials, trims, options and accessories. From options such as bypasses and counter weights to special trims for abrasive, geothermal HF acid or NACE service, APV can provide valves built to your needs - often directly from our extensive stock holdings. Valves can be manufactured with special face to face dimensions, end connections and bore sizes.
All APV valves are available with actuation packages according to customer needs. This includes electric, hydraulic and pneumatic actuation with a complete range of controls and accessories. Our in-house automation facility also ensures actuation and control options can be produced in very short lead times.
Low Total Cost of Ownership
Take into account all the factors involved in owning a valve, including installation, service and maintenance. The total cost of ownership of a valve can be several times the initial purchase price.
APV valves are designed and manufactured with this in mind. Our valves will save you money, by lowering maintenance costs, increasing service life and increasing the chance that a valve can be repaired rather than replaced.
The performance of our valves has been proven over and over again in thousands of installations. Customers throughout the world have made APV their preferred choice, based on our track record.
Apart from the industry-leading performance of our valves, APV offers supplier-integrated engineering, value-added services and all the other advantages you would expect from dealing with a forward thinking valve specialist.
