Valve Testing

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.

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

 

Valve Repairs

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.

Valve Seals

Leaking packing glands can be repaired without taking valves out of service using our specialist Valve PAK™ system. The Valve PAKtechnology 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).

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.
