Tested in Italy: Aleksin ball valves are resistant to fire

Ball valves, manufactured by Aleksin Plant Tyazhpromarmatura JSC, has been tested for fireproofness. The test was performed on the basis of accredited test rig in Italy together with inspectors of TUVSUD.

Ball valves DN 200 and 400 mm with pressure rating ANSI 150, 300, 600 were subjected to tests. All the valves have successfully passed the fire tests. The test will result in issue of Certificate TUV SUD to Aleksin Plant, which will certify conformance of ball valves DN 200-1400 mm up to class ANSI 900 to standards API-6D and API-607.

«It is not possible to collect such certificate in Russia, Certification Authorities have no proper accreditations. The only possible way is to collect Test Repot that is considered by home customers but not accepted by foreign companies. We want our products to comply with the international standards therefore we made such a decision»,- said Chief Designer of Aleksin Plant Roman Kirzhner who witnessed the tests.
