Test Facility

Our test facility is capable of testing any valve type or class up to and including DN 400. All test instrumentation used is calibrated in-house by Concept2Engineering engineers using master equipment that is certified by UKAS accredited laboratories. Concept2Engineering have two large test cabinets (6m x 2.4m x 3.0m) both of which are fully blast proofed and fitted with CCTV enabling tests to be witnessed from the safety of the workshop or office.

Oxygen depletion detectors and alarms have been installed to ensure the safety of test engineers and 3rd party inspectors for any tests involving liquid Nitrogen or any other asphyxiant gases.

Data logging software is used to capture and record all temperatures and pressures for inclusion in the final report; this data is displayed in real time on screens at the test panel for continual review by the test engineer and 3rd party inspector.
