Houston, TX, March 29, 2022 – Compressor valve manufacturer Zahroof Valves, Inc. (ZVI), has announced an agreement in which compression and equipment service specialist Arkos Field Services partners as an authorized service provider in the USA. This arrangement provides ZVI customers with enhanced access to locally stocked parts and support expertise.
ZVI developed the patented StraightFlo™ reciprocating compressor valve with modular reed technology, which delivers a quantum improvement in valve performance, serviceability, and reliability.
“The installed base of StraightFlo™ valves is large and continues expanding rapidly,” said Jim Ilaria, Chief Executive Officer of ZVI. “As it grows, we’re committed to maintaining a best-in-class level of support. As a premier industry specialist, Arkos will help us maintain unmatched customer care.”
“With this partnership, our customers can now reach out to a local Arkos service center for modules, repair kits, and other accessories to maintain the uptime of their compressors. When on-site service is needed, they have the ability to call out certified Arkos technicians who are based within a reasonable driving distance.”
“Customers can also benefit when working with Arkos on make-ready and rebuild projects,” said ZVI Senior Vice President Javvad Qasimi. “While other work is being performed, Arkos can seamlessly upgrade to StraightFlo™ compressor valves. This adds substantial value to the rebuild in terms of compressor performance, reliability, emissions reduction, and valve inventory savings. A majority of those valve upgrades can be completed by Arkos using StraightFlo™ valves already in stock. From that point forward the customer continues to benefit from Arkos’ rapid response times and expertise for valve-related support.”
Arkos is an experienced gas compression and equipment service partner that has hundreds of established Master Service Agreements with customers in upstream, midstream, and downstream Oil & Gas. With 100 skilled field service and operations personnel operating from 11 facilities across the USA, Arkos can provide responsive service for installation, repairs, and maintenance of Zahroof valves in any region.

The exceptional performance and environmental sustainability benefits of Zahroof valves improves our ability to help customers find the optimal solutions for their compressors in any operating environment.”
