Pentair commissions valve testing facility in China
Pentair Valves & Controls has commissioned a new pressure relief valve testing facility to help meet Asia's growing need for pressure relief systems in critical applications for the power generation, oil and gas, process, and petrochemical industries.
The new steam test facility expands Pentair's current China-based manufacturing, assembly, sales, start-up, maintenance, and repair capabilities with the addition of testing services for Pentair's Crosby and Anderson Greenwood branded pressure management solutions.
The new pressure relief valve testing facility was designed to meet the strict requirements of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code Section I for testing and capacity certification. ASME standards and codes are used in over 100 countries to ensure the safety and efficiency of boilers and pressure vessels.
Pentair's steam testing facility can also meet engineering requirements for valves used in supercritical boiler applications for power plants running at pressures at of 3100 PSIG and higher.
The company's China footprint now includes three factories, three service centres and more than 1,000 qualified engineers and specialists across the country.
