United Valve’s engineering testing department is equipped and staffed to provide a host of extreme valve inspections & evaluations. Several cryogenic testing tanks and advanced tank control systems allow us to easily test any valve at cryogenic temperatures from 0 degrees F, down to -320 degrees F as well as all intermediate temperatures. On the other side of the temperature spectrum, our fire testing facility is equipped to provide high- temperature fire testing in accordance with ISO, API or customer specifications. Fugitive emissions (FE) testing is supported by several specially- designed and built testing fixtures. The actual testing is controlled by custom software and human-machine-interface (HMI) technology. FE testing can be performed with either Methane or Helium. The qualification of valves for refinery service per API RP591 is another service of the engineering testing group. All types of valves are evaluated with results compared to original design specifications as well as RP591 testing and inspection criteria.
