IN LINE PRESSURE RELIEF VALVE TESTING:
*SAVE TIME *SAVE MONEY *SATISFY INSPECTION REQUIREMENTS
A National Board of Boiler & Pressure vessel inspectors approved method of testing pressure relief valves under the “VR” Certificate of Authorization.
The testing system commonly referred to as a “Lift Assist Testing Device” applies an auxiliary lifting load to the spring of your new, existing , or repaired valve while under system pressure to establish or verify the set point. The system used by ISB is the AVK, the industry leader of this specialized equipment.
The testing can be accomplished as you run your operation, and will not hamper your plant function.Testing prior to a shutdown identifies valve services needs, reduces labor costs typical for removal and re-installations.
We suggest this test in years that the safety valves are not removed and serviced in a “VR” shop.
All test results are downloaded and the customer receives a report. Technicians can make set point adjustments if needed or found out of tolerance. This report is kept on file for your company, insurance and inspection agencies.
This is a “Due Dilligence ” check on your safety valves for the “in between years”. There is nothing superior than the actual disassembly/ inspection of the safety valves, but the on site testing is the next best thing to do.
We also have safety valve program that maintains spreadsheet records of your plant systems,equipment ID#s, service dates, VR dates, boiler #, tank# ,valve manufacturer,type, model, set pressures, capacity , etc.
