DCV Testing

We have a number of test rigs capable of testing up to 6 DCVs simultaneously at a range of temperatures and pressures. Our sophisticated software package allows us to run test cycle durations to suit each customers exact needs.

Our DCV test rigs can be utilised in a number of different scenarios including fluid qualification testing, FAT, fluid changeovers, FEED work and a number of other applications, including product development on new fluid or valve designs.

Please refer to the tables below for more information on the test rig capabilities and typical testing we offer and do not hesitate to contact us to discuss your requirements.
