Truflo Marine unveil new Flow & Test Cycle Rig - Going with the Flow

Truflo Marine is proud to announce that their new in house ‘Flow & Test Cycle Rig’ will be ready for commissioning at the end of September 2009.

The Flow & Test Cycle Rig will enhance Truflo Marine’s portfolio of existing test capabilities which includes portfolio fatigue, fire, cryogenic and cycle testing. Operating under realistic test conditions, the facility will provide Truflo Marine with far greater control of the testing process as it will allow for in depth experimental programmes. Valves in development can be tested to ensure that the design is valid prior to the process being taken further. Complete with fully automatic cycle testing, Truflo Marine will have the ability to cycle test valves while recording data 24 hours per day. The test facility will also be contracted out to third parties; Truflo Marine will be one of only a few companies who can offer such test facilities.

The Flow & Test Cycle Rig is certainly an impressive piece of kit. Operating at 40 bar, the roof mounted tank holds 10,000 litres of water which weighs 10 tonnes. In addition, there is approximately a further 1,500 litres (1.5 tonnes) of water in the pipework.
