All our operators are experienced and trained to conduct all tests in accordance to the most important International Standards in line with project requirements. Pure Nitrogen, or a mixture with Helium, is commonly used to release a big amount of leak in case of valve failure.
Maverick’s Testing area includes 7 test benches suitable for both hydrostatic and gas testing for valves from ½” to 56” and pressure classes from ANSI 150 to API 15000, from 0 to 1600 bar, for a maximum weight of 1800 Tons.
Testing of valves for transport and storage of gases is highly recommended to verify the good performance of a valve under pressure. Cryogenic and low-temperature valves performance can be tested by a suitable gas testing (Helium, Nitrogen or Helium mixture) at service temperature down to -196°C (-320,8°F): Maverick’s Testing area includes suitable tanks for valves up to 40” and Nitrogen reservoir to perform cryogenic testing at any time.
