What to Look for in New Inline Safety Valve Testing Equipment

Any valve test and repair company, no matter how big or small, is defined by the quality of service and accuracy of testing they offer. The safety valve testing equipment you use plays a big role in how quickly and how accurately you’re able to test clients’ valves and offer them the information and the service they need to do better, more efficient business.

If your company has been using the same inline pressure relief valve testing equipment for years, it’s time for an upgrade. You need pressure relief valve testing equipment that’s making use of the most advanced software and technology to make your technician’s job easier, your service better, and your business more profitable. If you’re ready to upgrade your inline safety valve testing equipment, here’s what to look for in a new system:

One-Touch Valve Testing Software

Your technicians are skilled, talented workers who have more knowledge about the inner workings of pressurized systems and safety valves than anyone else out there. Make sure they have the tools to do their job to the best of their ability. One-touch valve testing software takes away much of the time-consuming setup and potential for human error that comes with inline safety valve testing.

Not familiar with one-touch valve testing software yet? Here’s how it works:

  • Using a computer-controlled motor, the testing software runs the pressure relief valve test automatically and with exceptionally smooth accelerations that ensure accurate and repeatable results.
  • Once the load rig is set up, your technicians press a button that kicks off the inline safety valve test.
  • High-tech systems like the AccuTEST inline safety valve testing system will graphically display the progress of the test and precisely determine the valve set point.
  • This technology ensures your technicians get accurate, repeatable test results every time.

One-touch valve testing software, used by AccuTEST, takes the burden off of your technician. With single-touch testing and automatic setpoint calculation, this sophisticated software eliminates the potential for human error throughout the test, from automatic calibration of measurement sensors to the final results.

Intuitive Software Interface & Data Storage

This is the 21st century. Your inline safety valve testing equipment should be easy to interact with and have a user-friendly interface. If you’re looking to upgrade your inline safety valve testing equipment, know that there are options out there, like the AccuTEST system, that provide intuitive software interfaces, and helpful, comprehensive data storage.

With inline safety valve testing equipment that incorporates an advanced software interface, your technicians can monitor the progress of the safety valve test on the graphical display as it happens. What’s more, the AccuTEST system sends test files directly to the system computer, where they are permanently stored for complete, simple data management. The files are then easily accessed whenever your technician needs to revisit or print out test results for a client.

While features like a visual display of the test process, and the ability to permanently store, access, and print test results sound relatively basic, they’re not incorporated in a number of inline safety valve test systems on the market today. These features offer a significant improvement to your ability to provide clients with the information they need following your valve testing service.

Universal Testing Capabilities

The more valves your technicians are able to test, the more profitable your business becomes. Many manufacturing and industrial facilities make use of a variety of different safety valves, and it’s nearly impossible to have specific testing equipment for each unique valve or valve brand. Instead, look for new inline safety valve testing equipment that offers universal testing capabilities.

Systems offering these capabilities will feature universal mounting frames designed to accommodate any variety of safety valves, and will include software that provides access to a database of a multitude of valve types and sizes from various manufacturers, to ensure your technicians have the information they need on hand, no matter what type of facility they’re working in, or what type of safety valve they’re testing.

Strong Technical Support

Making the decision to switch to upgrade your inline safety valve testing equipment is a big investment. You shouldn’t have to worry about how you’re going to protect or maintain that investment. While in the past, inline safety valve testing equipment has had a reputation for poor service and exceptionally long repair turnaround times, the industry is changing. You can, and should find an inline safety valve test equipment provider that offers helpful, timely technical support.
