BuTech Subsea Valves Conform to API 6A
Product News Wednesday, March 23, 2011: Haskel International, Inc.
Haskel International, Inc., designer and manufacturer of the BuTech brand of high pressure valves, fittings and tubing, announces successful completion of Performance Verification Testing, per API 6A, 19th ed., for seven (7) models of its Subsea Valves. Tests were confirmed by DNV (Det Norske Veritas Classification (Americas), Inc., who inspected individual performance verification testing reports, per standards API 6A (19th Edition), ISO 10423:2003 PR2, Annex F, and issued an official Project Summary Report covering the scope of the DNV inspection.
In Subsea production and upstream pipeline applications, safety and reliability are critical. Tests demonstrated the integrity of the subsea valves in accordance with the standard, and provided data to support the confidence that BuTech subsea valves meet performance, safety and reliability expectations in the deepest water and some of the harshest environments in the offshore oil and gas industry.
The valves were subjected to Hydrostatic, Hyperbaric and Calibrated Temperature Bath Testing that simulate the extreme heat, cold and pressure adversities that exceed the environment in which Sub-Sea valves must reliably operate. Tests proved the BuTech valves conform to all aspects stated in API 6A (19th Edition), ISO 10423:2003 PR2, Annex F, a global industry standard that is recognized around the world as the Specification for Wellhead and Christmas Tree Equipment that covers equipment utilized for pressure control systems for production of oil and gas.
BuTech is a well respected brand worldwide, known for first class design and quality, which helped earn its ISO 9001/2008 accreditation in 1994. In 2000, Haskel International, Inc. a leading manufacturer of high pressure liquid and gas handling equipment, established complete ownership and control of BuTech. Haskel, the highest-quality, lowest-cost, most customer-focused provider of engineered, liquid and gas handling equipment in the world, has a quality system that is ISO 9001/2008 accredited since 1997.
A total of seven (7) valves have been tested and confirmed to meet the API 6A standards.
