We understand that quality is important when speccing or buying valves. We’re known in the industry for our high standards, both in customer service and product quality, but we also place a lot of emphasis on our internal processes to ensure we exceed your expectations every step of the way.

We are accredited to:

Pressure Equipment Directive (PED) 2014/68/EU  – “applies to the design, manufacture and conformity assessment of stationary pressure equipment with a maximum allowable pressure greater than 0.5 bar. The directive entered into force on 20 July 2016.”

ATEX 2014/34/EU – “covers equipment and protective systems intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres. The Directive defines the essential health and safety requirements and conformity assessment procedures, to be applied before products are placed on the EU market.”

ISO 10497 / API 607 – “specifies fire type-testing requirements and a fire type-test method for confirming the pressure-containing capability of a valve under pressure during and after the fire test.”

ISO 15848 Fugitive Emissions – “specifies testing procedures, for evaluation of external leakage of valve stem seals (or shaft) and body joints of isolating valves and control valves intended for application in volatile air pollutants and hazardous fluids.”

TA Luft –  Germany’s comprehensive air pollution control regulation

Pressure testing as standard to ISO 5208 Rate A / API 598 – “specifies examinations and tests that a valve manufacturer needs to act upon in order to establish the integrity of the pressure boundary of an industrial metallic valve and to verify the degree of valve closure tightness and the structural adequacy of its closure mechanism.”

FPAL – “FPAL was set up by the UK oil and gas industry in 1996, it has been helping operators promote successful contract delivery and improve business performance.”

Compliance with NORSOK requirements – “The NORSOK standards are developed by the Norwegian petroleum industry to ensure adequate safety, value adding and cost effectiveness for petroleum industry developments and operations.”

Safety Integrity Level ‘SIL’ (Up to level 3) – “is defined as a relative level of risk-reduction provided by a safety function, or to specify a target level of risk reduction.”
