ValvTechnologies has taken delivery of the first three of five new leak test machines from Metrus. Part of the current £1M workshopupgrade programme, the machines will provide state of the art accuracy and repeatability, including digital bubble counters and the ability to upload test data to the Valve Management Database in real time. They will also drastically reduce test set up time, hence improving turnaround time. One of the smaller test benches, still capable of testing up to 8″ relief valves, will be installed in our mobile workshop.
The machines have been set up temporarily in our pilot operational excellence cell.
