COOPER Valves strives to provide product that meets or exceeds industry and customer requirements.

Meeting these needs requires full commitment on COOPER Valves to provide the highest quality in-house engineering services and product development.  COOPER Valves engineering has over thirty years of engineering experience in design, development and most importantly customer support in the valve industry. COOPER Valve engineering uses the latest equipment, software and materials to meet the defined product requirements.

3D CAD Modeling

3D CAD allows COOPER Valve engineering to fully design all new product development and product improvements in a three dimensional computer environment.

  • Computer Aided Design – cras volutpat odio ac sapien faucibus auctor

  • Results Orientated – Sed consequat odio quis dictum

  • Research Led – Nam ac pharetra nibh. Nullam eu magna sit

This allows engineering to develop different design paths and select the optimum design quicker, easier and more cost effective.

Finite Element Analysis

Original design of valves and other flow control equipment required hand calculations to solve material stress, strain, and deformation to determine if the design will satisfy all requirements.

  • Research Led – Nam ac pharetra nibh. Nullam eu magna sit

The use of FEA will calculate these values quickly, efficiently and more accurately. This allows engineering to analyze various ideas, designs and iterations quicker to determine the best design.  This allows development of better, stronger, lighter and cost effective designs.

Computational Fluid Dynamics

CFD is used to analyze both fluid moving through the valve at any given time and temperature variations during operation.

Once the environmental and operational conditions are known, the information can be inputted into the program to recreate the flow during operation. CFD will analyzed the flow to provide critical information on the performance and operation.  CFD can provide information on flow rates, velocity, mass flow, cavitation, turbulence, efficiency and much more. This information provides critical insights to develop the finest valves possible.

Testing

However, all the technical resources can only provide an excellent representation of the valve during operations. Once the design and manufacturing processes are complete, COOPER Valves are tested using some of the latest equipment.
