highly engineered electrohydraulic products provide a wide variety of
control capabilities and applications.
CEI proportional and servo valve products
include directional control valves, differential pressure controls,
hydrostatic pump controls, input controllers (joysticks), and electronic
CEI is virtually the only electrohydraulic
valve manufacturer in the United States that supplies proportional and servo valve
products with field interchangeable first stage pilots:
thus allowing the customer to significantly reduce down time in the field,
and basically eliminate the need to return the product to the factory for
All of CEI's subplate models conform to
current NFPA standards or other widely recognized industrial mounting
configurations. In addition CEI manufacturers two standalone valve
models that do not require subplate mounting.
CEI products are 100% American made, and
they are the lowest priced proportional and servo valve products
available in America or Europe with the same features.
CEI offers flow capabilities to 80 GPM.

Former employees of SLI Industries established CEI
in 1982. SLI was sold in the
early 1980ís to Commercial Intertech Inc.
The founders of CEI were instrumental in the designing and
manufacturing of the SLI Proportional valve line.
CEI became the master distributor and the only authorized repair
and service center in North America for the SLI proportional valve line
then manufactured by Commercial Intertech Inc.
In 1989 CEI purchased the proportional valve
produce line from Commercial Intertech.
CEI invested significant engineering and manufacturing resources to
redesign and improve the performance of the product.
Manufacturing of the improved product, at its Simi Valley,
California facility, began in late 1989.
In 1990 CEI introduced its new low cost 90 series servo valve products to the market place.
By 1994 CEI had
outgrown its Simi Valley facility and was relocated to a new modern
manufacturing facility located in Oakhurst, California near Fresno.
Sargent Controls & Aerospace, a division of
Dover Diversified Inc., purchased CEI in August of 1999.
Sargent Controls has expanded CEIís engineering capabilities
dramatically. CEI has already
announced several new products that will be available to the marketplace in
2000 and 2001.
About CEI Products

Control Enterprises, Inc. (CEI) Manufactures a complete line of
electrohydraulic valves and actuators for remote and automated controls.
These products consist of proportional valves, servo valves, rotary and
linear hydrostatic controls, differential pressure controls, input
controllers (joysticks), and mounting kits.
CEI products may be used on virtually any application where precise
remote electric control of hydraulic systems is required.
CEI controls are extremely low in power consumption; typically
plus or minus 4VDC @ 80 Ma. They are compatible with a wide variety
of control methods, from simple potentiometers and joysticks to
sophisticated closed loop electronic cards and microprocessors.
General applications are extremely broad, A sampling would include the
