What is valve service and how does it benefit my facility?

A valve service is carried out so that you have full control over whether the valves are working as they should, so that you can detect any leaks and wear and tear at an early stage and fix them before the problem becomes a reality. 

By checking, maintaining, repairing and possibly replacing the valves, costly production stoppages are reduced and the valves have a longer service life and quality. It also has a lower environmental impact because a timely repair can mean that you don't have to replace your existing valves with new ones. 

Our specialist trained service technicians have all the necessary equipment and can quickly find the root cause of an abnormal wear or leak.  

Our valve service – that's how it works

  1. We start by disassembling and cleaning the valve and its parts
  2. Gaskets and packing boxes are replaced
  3. Sealing surfaces are ground
  4. We check the different parts of the valve for condition and wear; Do any spare parts need to be replaced? 
  5. We functionally test the valve on a test bench with calibration and then do a leak check
  6. A sign with information on opening pressure and inspection date is mounted and sealed on the valves
  7. We give you a full-scale report and maintenance plan of the valves

Below you can read about the type of service and maintenance we offer for different types of valves:

 

Safety valves

Shut-off valves

Leaking shut-off valves can lead to high energy costs and process disruptions. In the worst case, it can also involve security risks.

We perform

  • Disassembly and assembly
  • Refurbishment and testing of actuators – electric and pneumatic
