Design

The product development team utilizes the latest CAD tools, such as Pro E Creo 2.0 to design every component for optimal performance through its full pressure/temperature range. Computer models are subjected to dimension verification as well as pressure and temperature simulations (FEA) in an effort to confirm the design and expose potential weakness in a “virtual” environment. This process ensures the actual product is “fit for purpose” prior to manufacture.

Manufacture

Individual materials and assemblies are subjected to a rigorous testing protocol prior to production release and during manufacturing. Manufacturing is carried out on precision CNC machines to maintain top-most accuracy and repeatability. After assembly each valve is actuated and tested prior to shipment.

Measure

All components are subjected to dimension verification as well as pressure and temperature simulations (FEA) in an effort to confirm the design and expose potential weakness in a “virtual” environment. This process ensures the actual product is “fit for purpose” prior to manufacture. Components are tested with the aid of precision 3D checking instruments to ensure maximum conformance to designed dimensions.

Test & Certify

DelVal products are also performance tested, and prototypes are tested for fire safety, fugitive emissions, flow capacity, shock/vibration resistance, and safety integrity among others. Products are also tested for life cycle validation under pressure and temperature by rapid cycling on special test rigs.
