Pentair Valves & Controls has commissioned a new pressure relief valve testing facility in China to provide pressure relief systems in power generation, oil and gas, process, and petrochemical industries.
The new steam test facility expands the company’s China-based manufacturing, assembly, sales, start-up, maintenance, and repair capabilities with the addition of testing services for its Crosby and Anderson Greenwood branded pressure management solutions.
The new pressure relief valve testing facility was designed to meet the 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 3100 PSIG and higher.
