Subsea Valves Meet API 6A Standards
Product Announcement from Haskel International LLC
BuTech subsea valves models comply with globally recognized API 6A specification. The subsea valves meet critical demands in oil and gas production and upstream pipeline applications in the harshest environments.
Haskel International, Inc., designer and manufacturer of the BuTech brand of high pressure valves, fittings and tubing, announces successful completion of Performance Verification Testing, per API 6A, 19th ed., for seven (7) models of its Subsea Valves. Tests were confirmed by DNV (Det Norske Veritas Classification (Americas), Inc., who inspected individual performance verification testing reports, per standards API 6A (19th Edition), ISO 10423:2003 PR2, Annex F, and issued an official Project Summary Report covering the scope of the DNV inspection.
In Subsea production and upstream pipeline applications, safety and reliability are critical. Tests demonstrated the integrity of the subsea valves in accordance with the standard, and provided data to support the confidence that BuTech subsea valves meet performance, safety and reliability expectations in the deepest water and some of the harshest environments in the offshore oil and gas industry.
The valves were subjected to Hydrostatic, Hyperbaric and Calibrated Temperature Bath Testing that simulate the extreme heat, cold and pressure adversities that exceed the environment in which Sub-Sea valves must reliably operate. Tests proved the BuTech valves conform to all aspects stated in API 6A (19th Edition), ISO 10423:2003 PR2, Annex F, a global industry standard that is recognized around the world as the Specification for Wellhead and Christmas Tree Equipment that covers equipment utilized for pressure control systems for production of oil and gas.
