Calibrate the last line of your defence by comparison.
Any pressurised system requires safety devices to protect people, processes and property.
As soon as mankind was able to boil water to create steam, the necessity of the safety device became evident. A spring-loaded pressure relief valve which is designed to open to relieve excess pressure and to reclose and prevent the further flow of fluid after normal conditions has been restored.
Everyone interprets safety and relief valve calibration differently upon purchase, when an instrument is manufactured it is not guaranteed that it has been calibrated and tested in an working environment, thus all new instruments must be tested to ensure their reliability.
Periodic testing and adjustment of pressure safety valves are essential to maintain overall safety in Oil and Gas and other related industries. The most common test method for safety and relief valves is a bench test, performed in a workshop. Such tests typically occur in conjunction with disassembly, inspection, and repair. We are equipped to certify safety valves in accordance to API598 up to 40Bar pneumatically and 800Bar hydraulically, with sizes up to 3” flanged and 2” threaded
