Safety Valve Testing

Safety ValveOur safety valve testing service means Valveforce are able to test every safety valve, whilst in place and under live operating conditions. As a steam safety valve is often the last device to prevent catastrophic failure under pressure conditions, it is essential that our engineers can test this on-site to ensure the valve works at all times and is 100% reliable.

Increasing your plant’s productivity, output and bottom line

When testing critical components such as safety valves it is important to maintain plant productivity and safety, unfortunately with general test procedures the safety valve is required to be removed and maintained offline in a repair workshop. This outage and removal can often be very time consuming and costly in terms of man hours also manual handling equipment is often required.

Valveforce are able to eliminate this issue by offering a safety valve testing and maintenance service which can prove and test the valves in-situ.

The Safety Valve Testing from Valveforce will cover:

  • Live testing can be carried out without any downtime
  • Accurate evaluation of set pressure, forces and lift
  • Capacity testing against lift of the valve is carried out
  • Resetting of the set pressure can be carried out in service
  • The equipment used is approved by Lloyds register
  • Full documentation and test certification is provided.

The Valveforce in-situ safety valve testing is a competitive and straight forward way to understand and reprove your safety valves. It gives you the ability to also identify valves that have drifted and maybe in need of adjustments.
