Our valves are subject to comprehensive testing to ensure that they can perform effectively in the relevant operating conditions. We recognise that lives can depend on the performance and reliability of our products and have invested heavily in the best testing facilities to give you greater peace of mind.
Our extensive facilities range from simple low-pressure testing for our more basic valves, to our new shock-resistant ballistic test bay. This bay enables us to replicate even the most demanding service conditions, with pressures of up to 60,000 psi for pipework and 21,500 psi for gas and hydro manifold valves.
An HD camera system enables us to record detailed footage of all tests, from a variety of angles simultaneously to supplement the detailed findings of all testing activity.
All of our testing activity is extremely safe and adheres to HSE (Health & Safety Executive) recommendations for operator safety.
