About AMOT Controls
AMOT CONTROLS has a factory and head office in Bury St. Edmunds in the UK, and the solutions are today the industry standard for many different industrial applications worldwide. The history of AMOT began in 1948 in Richmond, California with the development of a thermostatic valve for the marine industry, and the solutions for recording and regulating temperature and pressure are still at the forefront. In addition, new areas have been added, such as condition monitoring for engines and machinery, as well as safety solutions for diesel engines - first in 2007 through the purchase of Roda Deaco Valve Company (Edmonton, Canada), and again in 2008 with the purchase of Chalwyn Ltd. (UK). With these two product lines, as well as the expertise that came with it, AMOT is now the world's leading manufacturer of emergency stop systems for diesel engines.
Ing. Westad AS is the Scandinavian distributor for both AMOT three-way mixing valves and Chalwyn shut off systems. AMOT itself is today owned by Roper Technologies (USA), which also owns several other companies such as Ing. Westad supplies components and solutions from - see below.
In addition to AMOT, Roper Technologies also owns the brand name Rigsaver, which supplies stop systems for larger engines - for example on ships and rigs. In principle, these valves work in the same way as the Chalwyn valves, i.e. by shutting off the intake air to the engine/machine, but due to the size and the large forces involved in turning, have a slightly different construction.
In addition, Roper also owns the company Cornell Pump, which supplies a wide range of pumps and turbines, including for hydropower plants. Ing. Westad AS is your local point of contact for all these companies and product lines.
