Fugitive Emission Test (FET)
VOSS is equipped with Alcatel Adixen 124, a helium leak detector that has a helium sensitivity range of between 10-11 atm.cc/s. With this equipment, VOSS can perform FET to check whether your valves comply with any standard such as American National Standard Institution.
VOSS owns Norbar PT11, PT1A, equipment used to check the torque required to turn the valves. With this equipment, you can counter check the value given the manufacturer of the valves for by better actuator selection.
Our facilities are equipped with painting facilities that can comply to offshore specification or any relevant painting specification.
We can send our Engineers, Supervisors or Technicians to troubleshoot problematic valves and actuators at plant sites or offshore. Our personnel have the knowledge and skills to help you to troubleshoot operational-mechanical/instrument problems that you have at site. We are also backed by internal and external engineering expertise that can help to check your valve, actuator or whole actuated valve system.
Our Torqlite IU-10XK & IU 3XL are essential when assembling the valves and actuators. Hydraulic Torquing will ensure that the valves and actuators have the correct torque to avoid any quality issues.
Positive Material Identification (PMI)
We have 1 unit of Niton Analyzer XL3T 800 that can be used to analyze the composition of material. This is useful when you want to verify the material of your valves or actuator against what is stated in datasheet. You can also use PMI for other neighboring equipment such as piping (for but weld joint) and flanges for selecting proper gaskets.
Online Safety Valve Testing (OSVT)
OSVT is a method to find the set point of the safety valve while the valve is in service. It is a relatively new approach over the conventional test bench method. It can be used as a Condition Monitoring practice to check the health of the safety valve, reduce the maintenance frequency and consequently reduce maintenance cost by avoiding unnecessary shutdown. Our OSVT system has a proven test accuracy of less than 3% divergence from the true set point. Coupled with an ultrasonic sensor, the “start-to-leak” point can be identified and add to the accuracy of the set point result. OSVT has been widely used in developed countries as a replacement to the conventional test bench method and it is a growing method of testing safety valve in Asia.
