Richard Knowles to Present at the Institute of Mechanical Engineers

QA Weld Tech’s Technical Director, Richard Knowles, will be presenting at Pressure Testing 2017 held at the Institute of Mechanical Engineers in London on 5th December alongside other industry professionals. The seminar will present the safety risks posed by pressure testing of newly manufactured and installed pipework and pressure vessels, exploring examples of best practice, developing solutions and providing guidance on improved safety strategies.

With safety being QA Weld Tech’s number one priority and all of our occupational health and safety management systems in compliance with OHSAS 18001, Richard will discuss in detail how we safely pressure test finished components as well as explain the development of our new pressure test cells that are designed to meet the most stringent HSE guidelines.

It is an excellent opportunity to gain expert knowledge from professionals in their respective field and gauge an insight into the challenges that are faced both in factory and on site, learning how to understand and enhance testing processes and determining the best course of action going forward whilst remaining compliant with regulations.

Our Pressure Testing Capabilities

Hydrostatic pressure testing up to an impressive 1,500 bar (22,500 psi) to API and BS8010 can be carried out in our twin, individually certified pressure testing cells.

We invested in upgraded our pressure testing facilities in 2014 to meet the latest safety requirements featuring blast walls with ballistic certification, safety interlocks and remote video camera monitoring. Each cell measures 4m x 4m and a removable partition wall enables items up to 8m to be tested.

Our pressure testing bays are also available for use by third parties and if you would like any more information please do not hesitate to get in touch.
