Inspection and Review
On receiving the equipment in the workshop an initial inspection is carried out to check the overall condition. We also perform a functional test and record the details of the equipment; Model/Type/Size/Serial Number/Tag Numbers/Setting.
Disassemble and review
Equipment is disassembled to component parts, we review the full condition of the valve looking at seats, seals, gaskets and trim.
Shot Blast / Bead blast / Clean / Paint
Valves get fully cleaned and if required/specified we can shot blast and or bead blast and powder coat.
The valve will be rebuilt using all new soft spares and any other spares needed to return the valve to a good working condition we always offer OEM spares in the first instance and when necessary – and only with written client approval and agreement – we can supply non-OEM parts to speed up the repair process.. If additional spares are needed the customer is always made aware and photos are provided to show damage or the reasons behind the recommended change.
Valves weight packages are checked and verified for the required setting and then placed on our calibrated test rig and the leakage rates are recorded in accordance with relevant standards specific to the type of equipment . All performance figures are recorded on a test certificate.
This final stage ensures the valve meets the customers requirements and has been built back up to specification. Maintenance Reports and Test Certificates are issued.
