Over 150 fire main valves were tested at a major UK airport as part of system testing. Critical valve assessment equipment, with mobile actuation and torque measurement, was used on each valve. Seized valve release was carried out on several valves using Hydro-V, Hydrosave’s patented valve release technology.
Several valves were refurbished on site, using specialist fabricated designs and the support of Group company Integrated Water Services M&E. The Valves are now certified as operational. The reports and certificates, including torque graphs were provided on ‘Valves Online’ software.
An estimated £50,000 was saved by releasing seized valves and fabrication of specialist repairs.
