PS SERIES Test Benches

Valve test benches can be used for various applications like intermediate and final inspections by valve manufacturers, testing new valves upon delivery, and routine or post-repair testing of in-service valves. These consist of pressure tests of valve housings, leakage tests of the valve seats, and testing of the set pressure of safety valves, for example.

Other components can be subjected to pressure testing as well like tanks, motor housings, pump housings, pipe fittings, insulators, etc. Special clamping arrangements may be required to clamp these test pieces.

 

An EFCO valve test bench consists of a clamping unit and a control panel for operation, measurement, and control. The test piece is held securely by the clamping device and sealed on the inlet and outlet for the test. Clamping forces up to 1500t can be implemented (on request, even higher).

The operating/measuring/control console is used for the filling of the valve, building up of test pressure, controlling the clamping unit, and measuring of test pressure.

We also offer small, portable test units for mobile applications. These test units do not have a clamping unit and can be used to build up and measure test pressure (e.g. for tank tests).

EFCO also offers Customized Testing Equipment that is adapted and custom-designed to your specific requirements.
