Critical Valve Assessment
Torque Measurement, Valve PAK, Bespoke Repairs & Fabrication
Valve testing benefits
This valve testing service ensures you have an evidenced maintenance plan to ensure your business continues to operate. Using specialist mobile actuators with torque measurement technology our service engineers have the ability to operate and assess valves that would normally require more expensive remediation work.
Each valves condition assessment is provided with a torque graph plus operational and locational information captured in our web-based software system.
The valve testing process is designed to mitigate the risks associated with poor operability and serviceability of primary and critical isolation valves.
Valve maintenance & diagnostics
Our valve maintenance and diagnostics process operates valves through a partial or complete cycle in order to assess the full characteristics of a valve’s operation, diagnose performance and provide a maintenance operation that will permit the valve to operate more easily in the future.
Typical valve testing applications include:
Testing and certification of fire mains and hydrants
Strategic and sole supply pipelines
Strategic road, rail and river pipeline crossings
Reservoir maintenance and cleaning projects
Pumping station valve maintenance
Pipelines that operate adjacent to sensitive third parties
Pipelines that operate at high pressure
Pipelines in poor condition or planned for rehabilitation
Pre assessment of pipe rehabilitation schemes
We can fabricate and repair most valves when they are out of service. We can also re-size and replace broken spindles. We have specialist mechanical engineering fabrication facilities in the SSI Services Group.
Leaking packing glands can be repaired without taking valves out of service using our specialist Valve PAK™ system. The Valve PAK™ technology is an under pressure injected compound that seals leaks. The system is fully approved for use in drinking water including conformity to the DWI regulation 31 (4) (b).
Seized Valve Release
“No supply disruption”
We also have a seized valve release service, which uses patented technology originally designed for use in the Water Industry. This groundbreaking technology has also been adapted for use by other industries showing its versatility.
