fugitive emission platform

Fugitive emission testing: making the invisible visible

In addition to safety risks and product and economic loses, fugitive emissions contribute to air pollution and climate change. Valves are still responsible for a large proportion of uncontrolled fugitive emissions. Therefore the population of valves that are subjected to emission testing will grow substantially and standards for the application in volatile air pollutants and hazardous fluids will continue to tighten up. Emission testing is a blanket term for a variety of tests and test methods. This VVA training course presents a detailed and practical overview of the different procedures and standards. You will get a good understanding of the different test methods, test criteria, leak detection and classification.

Duration: 3.5 hours

cryogenic testing

Combined Cryogenic testing & Fire safe testing

Cryogenic testing

Mainly caused by the rapidly developing and expanding LNG industry we are seeing a growing need and interest in the cryogenic testing of valves and safety valves. In the past this laboratory kind of test was executed as a unique type approval test, but under pressure from rising environmental standards each new and reconditioned valve assigned for this application will need to prove its integrity and performance under these tough conditions. This course provides a basic understanding of what cryogenic testing involves. The do’s and don’ts, the different cooling methods, test fluids and safe working with liquid nitrogen.

Duration: 2 hours

fire safe testing

Fire safe testing

Ideally a fire safe valve will be leak free at normal operating conditions and also during and after any external fire. Although the standards do not really describe fires, they do dictate extremely high temperature test conditions. How ambiguous is the term fire safe..? This course gives a good overview what it takes to qualify and label the valve ‘fire safe’. What is the correlation between the most common standards (API, BS EN-ISO) test methods, operating conditions and allowable leak rates.

Duration: 2 hours
