ATI FrontLine Services, the company’s specialized maintenance service group, operates from the new facility as well. The team offers expert field and in-house valve actuator repair, retrofitting, refurbishment and replacement as well as automation calibration.
The combination of all products and services at our facility assure that our clients are provided with a high level of customer service, increased efficiency, improved quality and decreased delivery times. After all, no one knows an ATI actuator better than us. We designed and manufactured it from day one. Our services include installations, retrofit, safety system calibrations, and installations at the job site. Repairs include:

We have the experience to retrofit ATI and other actuator brands to extend their performance. We offer bolt-on kits to update Shafer, EIM and other valve actuator brands without removing them from service. Among other items, ATI can replace hand pumps, high pressure controls, limit switches and poppet blocks.
ATI FrontLine Retrofit Services can provide:
ATI FrontLine technicians are extensively trained to used our rate-of-drop (ROD) test kit to field calibrate and simulate emergency operating scenarios under live field conditions. Our kit, with quick disconnects and compact portable self-contained enclosure, is easily connected and read.
Our services include:
FrontLine technicians have years of experience in valve actuator installation and service. We understand your application and can provide the needed expertise to safely mate your valve and its automation either in our facility or at the job site, whether within a plant or remote location. Our crews work quickly and efficiently, minimizing downtime and plant shut-ins.
Cost for actuator maintenance and repair increases with the age and wear of the actuator. Retrofitting is a process of auditing old actuators and re-automating them with controls. This ensures that your plant is more efficiently controlled, and any changes due to age and wear are addressed. We offer a complete bolt-on package for name brand actuators, while the actuator is in place, without any service interruption. We can also replace hand pumps, high pressure controls, limit switches and poppet blocks. If the audit shows that replacement is not necessary, we have spare kits for pumps and poppets.
ATI/Gevalco “Gas Motor Control” package can be used to upgrade existing EIM “G” series gas motor actuators with current, more reliable technology. The control package utilizes current “poppet” valve technology to provide reliable, maintenance-free control of gas motor actuators. The standard local “auto-manual” control consists of a “poppet” selector valve and two limit valves. The Gevalco patented limit valves, operated through a reliable cam mechanism, use a mechanical plunger integral to the proven Gevalco “poppet” valve. The “poppet” valve directly stops gas flow through the motor as opposed to operating a spool-type selector valve. This design provides quick, positive shut-off of the actuator to eliminate excessive torque on the valve and the waste of valuable gas. The “auto-manual” station, which can be remotely located, utilizes the proven and reliable Gevalco “poppet” valve design to provide a compact, easy to use, local control of the valve. The components can be easily field installed and calibrated to provide reliable, long cycle life control of existing gas motor actuators.
ATI customizes valve automation solutions to meet our customers’ specific needs. Almost 20 years ago, our story began with proprietary technology in customizing linear actuators. Those signature series actuators helped ATI build a strong reputation in the flow control industry. Paying attention to engineering specs became our core competency. Since that time, ATI has expanded our customization to include automation solutions when power is not readily available, controls for fast speeds, modulations or special conditions, and actuators for the pipeline industry. We have the experienced technicians, as part of ATI FrontLine Services, to repair or provide startup for on-site installations.
ATI has been a customized producer of high quality valve automation products for more than 20 years. Our capabilities, including a new 41,000 square foot air controlled Houston area manufacturing and engineering center, are well suited for machining custom parts of any quantity, large or small. We offer turn-key design and engineering services with a team having more than 50 years of experience, using 3D CAD, Solidworks 3D modelling software and PDM revision control. ATI is ISO 9001 certified with a quality management system that provides in-process and 100% final inspections.
Our shop is equipped with the latest CNC machines utilizing CAM software to create programs for the lathes and mills.
