Safety and Quality at the Forefront of Everything We Do
Our state-of-the-art testing facility offers high pressure gas testing up to 22,500psi in complete safety. All equipment is traceable to National Standards and testing is carried out in accordance to ISO 10423/API 6A PSL3G.
Safety is our prime consideration at all times, so all personnel and inspectors reside in our dedicated control room, which contains Vaseco custom-built software and CCTV equipment for remote observation of external and underwater views. All components under test are lowered into safety pits which are isolated behind reinforced concrete walls and locked doors.
Seat leakages at high and low pressures are measured by rotometers and electronic mass flow transducers.
Gas Testing Capabilities:
- High pressure gas testing up to 22,500psi
- Gas testing: Typically 100% Nitrogen or 100% Air
- Leak detection: Using 100% Helium or Nitrogen-Helium mixtures
Typical Components for Gas Testing: Valves (including ball, gate, globe, check, choke, butterfly), Seals (metal and elastomer), Connectors (electrical and hydraulic) and Heat Exchangers.
We also carry out Submerged Gas Testing
Components can be submerged in water which has been chilled to subsea temperatures and then pressurised with Nitrogen gas to check for external leakage.
