Valve maker benefits from TC unit
London, June 24, 2010
Viar Valvole, a leading Italian valve manufacturer, is able to provide a number of additional rigorous and essential testing services to its valves with a new unit acquired from Trouvay & Cauvin (TC), it said.
Valves can be subjected to sub-sea conditions thanks to a new hyperbaric chamber and extremes of low temperature in its cryogenic test facility, a statement said.
Test benches and assembly stations, a new test laboratory and a high pressure gas station are also on site, it added.
Trouvay & Cauvin has exclusivity for Viar’s floating and trunnion mounted valves in the rapidly developing Libyan market and can also offer this range to UK engineering contractors, according to the statement.
All valves are globally recognised for their quality and supported by all the necessary international accreditations. A further important approval API 6D SS that specifies the design of ball valves for sub-sea installation has now been added to the list, the statement said.
“Our aim is to shorten delivery times through increased capacity and maintain complete quality control from our operations here in Italy,” said Piero Cagnani, general manager of Viar Valvole.
Eric Buchanan, Trouvay & Cauvin managing director, said: “This is an excellent development for us and our customers.”
“Viar Valvole has always complimented us perfectly and will now be able to offer even better technical support and service for its valve range, which have always been of a high standard,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
