Re-tip Service

Our “re-tip” process will take your used stem and turn it into a “like new” condition. If the stem is properly replaced before major wash out occurs on the stainless steel material, the stem can typically be re-tipped 3-4 times. This process has been proven to save companies substantial amounts of money.

 

We start the process with cleaning and inspection.

Inspection:

The following examples are reasons a used stem will not pass inspection.

Unrepairable thread damage.

Note: For stems that have minimal damage, a thread file will be used to repair small imperfections

Unrepairable thread damage

 

Washout that cannot be re-tipped.

The stem must have a proper seating area for the carbide tip to ensure structural integrity.

Washout 

 

Damaged packing surface.

The stem must have a proper seating area for the carbide tip to ensure structural integrity.

V-Shaped acme threads.

Worn acme threads will have a v-shape instead of a square shape. The stem is no longer repairable when the threads lose their structural integrity.

Consignment Services

South Texas Specialties offers an on-site consignment storage locker for the customer’s convenience. Our consignment services reduce downtime and minimize the need for multiple trips to a supply store. Because our goal is to cater to each company’s individual needs, we allow our customers to choose the products that they want in the unit. The process is simple. Send us a list of items from our inventory to stock in the storage unit. The unit is then  delivered to your location, and left for a period of time. We would go by weekly or bi-weekly to take inventory. In each case, we only invoice what was used. Contact us now, and we will get you started.
