Mokveld upgrades valve test capability

Offshore staff

GOUDA, the NetherlandsMokveld Valves has commissioned two new test bunkers for trials of its valve systems.

The company committed to the investment due to increasingly stringent demands from the oil and gas industry in terms of quality and safety (i.e. fugitive emissions) and type approval testing.

Both bunkers are said to have specifications unmatched in the industry, providing pressure testing with nitrogen and helium up to 1,200 bar (17,404 psi), and temperature tests over a range of -196°C to 200°C (-321°F to 392°F).

On completion of the construction Mokveld plans to build two more test bunkers.
