Defense / Maritime Valves

Lexair has been a supplier to the U.S. Navy for over 45 years providing components, assemblies, and parts that are “Made in the USA”.  We have strengthened our focus through the recent partnership with maritime distributor JA Moody.  We are both small businesses allowing us to react quickly to customer needs without excessive red-tape or delays.  Our focus is to supply new valves for shipbuilding, spare parts to the Navy and DLA for existing ships at sea, and form/fit/function replacements for obsolete valves. Our engineers utilize the latest technologies including Laser Scanning, Finite Element Analysis (FEA), and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) to quickly design and prototype valves.  We use additive manufacturing techniques including 3D printed patterns for prototype and low volume production run castings.  We work with appropriate materials according to Navy MIL-Standards, 803-138, MIL-F-1183, MIL-V-24624, and others.

A few examples of the valves we manufacture include: 

  • Check valves
  • Needle valves
  • Y-strainers
  • Pressure relief valves
  • 2-way gate valves
  • Stop-check valves
  • 2-way poppet valves
