The greatest cost associated with valve inspection, testing, and repair is the time consumed with test system setup and breakdown.
The Haskel Valve Test Bench, operated by one person, can secure the valve, pressure test both seating surfaces, test the bonnet and the stem packing, and release the valve within two to five minutes.
Experience has shown that one operator on a Haskel Valve Test Bench can test valves up to ten times faster than conventional testing methods. In some cases, it is equal to installations using as many as eleven test shop personnel and six work stations.
The compact design of Haskel Valve Test Benches occupies a work area of less than 16 sq. ft. (1.5 sq. meters), minimizing costly floor space while maximizing the efficient flow of valves through the bench. The hydraulic actuation of clamping arms secures the valve on the uniquely designed Table of Pressure seals immediately after the valve has been placed on the bench.
Haskel Valve Test Benches are designed to save time and money, without compromising safety.
