Shell Test

Shell test

MM Machine Works, being the leading Valve Manufacturers in Coimbatore, India, is committed to providing Valve Shell Testing with sophisticated machinery and equipment based on the approved valve testing procedures. The Shell Test or Body Test validates the strength and soundness of the valve pressure-containing structure. This is a kind of pressure test where normally air, inert gas, water, kerosene, etc. are used as a test fluid. Most of the Valve Inspection and Testing procedures are driven by the API 598, and ASME B16.34 standards. Valve leakage is tested using either Hydrostatic Shell Test or a Pneumatic Valve Test, and the results can vary depending on the techniques of the tester. No leakage is allowed in this Valve Shell Test.
