Enhanced Testing - Score Valves (Trinidad & Tobago) Limited

Established to ensure integrity and consistency of valves in service, the Score European Valve Research Centre is a Lloyd's Accredited Laboratory, and is now the largest independent specialised testing facility available to industry.

Valve tests specified in International Standards are not sufficient to demonstrate fitness for purpose in certain critical applications. Consequently, some valves will require additional testing in order to simulate operating conditions.

Publications in industry journals and presence on international standards committees is testimony to the groundbreaking work achieved by Score's engineering team.

Score Valves (Trinidad & Tobago) Limited has all the facilities to pressure test components in liquid and gas. There are ten dedicated permanent test cells, fully tooled for all valve. The company also has the facilities to impose both cryogenic and elevated temperature on the valve at the appropriate pressure. Torque, tension, compression, shear, benching forces etc. can also be applied simultaneously in the appropriate test rigs.

All testing is carried out utilising high sensitivity, fully calibrated measurement equipment that meets or exceeds relevant standards. The following tests are conducted in Trinidad:

  • Hydrostatic Testing
  • Low Temperature and Cryogenic Type Testing
  • Gas Testing
  • Leak Detection
  • Cyclic Testing
  • Torque Testing
  • Vacuum Testing
  • Valve and Operator Diagnostics
  • Positive Material Identification (PMI)
  • Fugitive Emissions Testing
