About us

Since 1974 Valcom® designs, develops and manufactures measuring and control instruments for industrial processes. Decades of experience and efforts in developing innovative products for the measures of level, pressure, differential pressure, vacuum, temperature, flow, density, gloss, consistency and oil mist, make Valcom® Your ideal partner for sensors and control equipments.

A process under control

A process under control needs expert systems, statistical analysis and optimization through the management of a closed loop. Therefore, data are required in real-time process, concerning the quality, the quality deviation measured with respect to it, corrective actions identified and predictable parameters, simulations of control actions, and other functions. An expert system is also able to provide the operator with information to be evaluated according to specific characteristics of the process and developed during the design and the engineering of the plant.

In most of the processes it is required the analysis of a large number of variables to develop a statistical calculation, to obtain useful directions for the correction of outliers and consequently to optimize the quality of production; the wide range of online transmitters available on the market makes possible to optimize the control using traditional algorithms based on mathematical models and advanced type of nonlinear control systems. Thus, it comes very interesting the range of instruments that Valcom® can propose for the online installation.

Since 1974 Valcom® designs, develops and manufactures instrumentation for measuring and control of storage of fluids and solids. Since the birth of Valcom® today many things have changed, and the company has been evolved in different aspects; from a logistical transfer and expansion of the sales department, it has followed the technological evolution that the company has always tried to encourage and drive, on one hand making of own property some technologies once entrusted to third parties, on the other focusing on the internal research and development department.

History

Founded in Milan in 1974, Valcom® started with the designing, developing and manufacturing of measurement and control instruments with specific know-how in the Pulp & Paper Industry where the patented ET connection became soon an indisputable trademark, internationally recognized.

In the 80s the development towards a Smart electronic was enforced and as a result Valcom® introduced the SENIC version as a historical milestone in the remote field measuring of Pressure, relying on modular composition between transmitter head and various type of sensors, suitable for all Process Industries purposes.

The continuous efforts in researching together with a favorable economic situation made Valcom® significantly enter the Marine business in the Early 90s, with perfect selection of the suitable materials for sea-type and offshore application, expanding clients portfolio from domestic to all across Europe in the time of a few years.

Today VALCOM® engineers and manufactures instrumentation for various industrial sectors: Pulp & Paper, Marine, Water Food & Beverages, Chemical & Pharmaceutical. ISOATEXPED SIL certifications, together with latest compliance to Marine Standards and Type Approvals, guarantee the products to be compliant with the up-to-date technical standards.

VALCOM® Research & Development Department is constantly focused on updating the product range according to the newest technologies. For such reason VALCOM® in the recent past has driven many cooperation with different University departments in Italy and abroad, in particular for the development of new-patented upstream metering technologies.
In January 2017 VALCOM® joins the just constituted TERRANOVA®, a group gathering the oldest and most historical Italian Brands of Process Instrumentation: Spriano® (1923), Valcom® (1974) and Mec-Rela® (1976).
