The RITAG valve test facilities
The industry applies pressure. In the truest sense of the word. Especially in the oil and gas industries, but also in other sectors; the trend is to ever higher pressures and nominal diameters. RITAG is ideally suited for these situations. We are not only able to manufacture the valves, but we can also test them according to all recognised international norms and standards. This is guaranteed by 3 valve test facilities, whereby test facility 1 is recognised to be the largest and most modern of its kind in Germany.
The technical data of this "power pack" is more than impressive, even for experts in the industry: Since its own net weight is 45 tons, the test facility is able to clamp in valves withstanding a force of 9000 kN. That corresponds to a weight of 900 tons. In comparison: to equal such a weight one would have to load 180 full-grown elephants on the scales.
