Type Testing of Valves
Valve “type testing” is a new protocol where valves are tested at the operating pressure and temperature ranges specified by the manufacturer. This requires that some valves are tested at temperatures down to the cryogenic range and/or over 1000 degrees F.
In addition to the temperature and pressure testing extremes, the valves are also often required to be tested for fugitive emissions leakage during the test program. United Valve can perform type testing on valves of all sizes, materials and types.
