Our technicians are trained by the manufacturers of safety valves, particularly BHGE/Consolidated and Combraco/Apollo. We are a BHGE Green Tag repair center.

Safety valve testing capabilities include;

  • Steam boilers with a 64 cu. ft. Accumulator up to 1200 psig (2000 psig using the EVT-Pro) allowing us to accurately:
    • the set pressure
    • the operating range
    • Establish and confirm minimum lift
  • Air testing with a 18.7 cu. Ft. Accumulator delivering up to 1500 psig
    • Hydraulic tests on water for maximum test pressures ranging from 1500 to 4500 psig
    • An EVT-Pro (certified by A.S.M.E.) that allows us to verify the set pressure of the safety valves while they are in service. (air, gas, steam) This appliance is calibrated at least once per year by the manufacturer
    • On-site services include in-situ machining and valve testing

Can assist with on-site equipment surveys of installed valves (safety and control) to determine condition of equipment and develop programmed maintenance schedules.
