Vertical test benches
MOBILE BRIDGE UNIVERSAL CLAMPING
Vertical test rig with universal clamping system; all valve termination kind & 90° shape valve can be clamped.
In case of press clamping, the force is controlled automatically according to the water pressure inside the valve, and the result load is reduced to minimal terms.
Mobile upper side bridge allows vertical loading of the valve. In the basement there is a water vessel and an external water vessel could be added as option.
The use of a opened castle as upper side reaction structure (see picture), allows the user to make visual inspection of valve seat during the test. Full surrounding armoured fairing system ensure operator safety.
Process equipment can be self-contained
with control console only or any standard pressurization skid. (SKA, SKM)
