Valve Test Presses

The Universe valve test presses are used for testing any type of shut-off valve. The test requires the use of water, or other accepted test media which is brought up to pressure and the valve is then checked for leaks. The Universe Test Presses come in both vertical and horizontal configurations with options such as a hydraulically operated loading table, tilt function and control panels.

Features

  • Engineered 4 post frame to ensure years of safe operation.
  • Grooved test plates with O-rings for testing flanged Valves.
  • Hydraulic cylinder used to clamp and hold test plates during pressured operation.
  • Able to test valve hydrostatically up to 10,000 psi.
  • Quick coupler connections to optional lead detection instruments.
  • Built since the 1970s with a long reliable history.

The standard unit is provided with corrosion resistant test plate for ANSI flange end valves, with “O” ring grooves based on diameter of nominal valve size plus 1/4”. Some valves may vary and size should be confirmed against test stand dimensions. Test plate configurations are available for RTJ valves. Other configurations are available upon request.
