Bestobell Marine Obtains Full Type Approval for its Cryogenic Valves

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 10/8/2015, Location: Europe

Bestobell Marine has obtained full type approval from the big four class societies for its range of globe and check cryogenic valves. DNV-GL. Lloyds Register, Bureau Veritas and American Bureau of Shipping have all approved Bestobell’s valves for use in cryogenic applications on ships which includes valves used in cargo systems on LNG carriers and bunker vessels, LNG fuel gas systems, LNG regasification systems and LNG reliquifaction systems.

Bestobell Marine has had to obtain full type approvals for its range of cryogenic globe and check valves due to the requirements from the IACS class societies changing at the beginning of 2014. The new rules required Bestobell to have Type Approval for its products or else be subjected to excessive testing requirements of its valves for every order they produced. This would have resulted in excessive testing costs having to be passed on to clients. With Type Approval Bestobell could continue to cryogenically test 10% of each type of valve in an order, and witnessed by a class surveyor. Bestobell marine 100% ambient test all their cryogenic globe and check valves to identify any leakage problems with its valves.

Bestobell Marine have their own fully operational cryogenic test facility that allows them to test thousands of valves each year for the many orders and projects they are involved in for shipyards and OEM clients. Class surveyors are attending every week to witness the tests on behalf of Bestobell Marine’s clients and Bestobell has built up a wealth of knowledge in carrying out cryogenic tests. As a company Bestobell Marine is also hugely experienced in managing large valve contracts and organising factory acceptance test (FAT) where shipyard, shipowner or OEM representatives attend with the Class surveyors to witness the testing of valves. It is this experience and knowhow of managing projects that allows Bestobell marine to deliver on time deliveries to its clients.
