Introducing the new CALDER Product Family
The new platform of CALDER advanced valve testing systems manufactured by CLIMAX are the safest, most accurate and most versatile systems on the market, and we are pleased to announce our new line-up of valve testing equipment.
The HYDROPRO™ Console is the most versatile and user-friendly tester in the industry, capable of performing a wide variety of valve tests when paired with a CALDER hydraulic clamping system or even blind flanging. Every component in the tester is OEM-certified to the maximum pressure of the system, CE certified, and manufactured under full ISO certification – no one else in the industry can say the same! This means vastly superior quality, safety, durability and performance for you, our customer. Our testers are infinitely configurable to meet your exact needs, and our modular, common-platform design ensures that all equipment and accessories are plug-and-play compatible, so we can upgrade/expand your system in the field, anytime in the future, to meet your changing business needs. This is by far the most flexible and cost-effective way to manage your valve testing program and maximize your return on investment. HYDROPRO™ is available world-wide and backed by the vast CLIMAX global support network, not to mention the longest warranty in the industry. Not only is HYDROPRO™ more accurate than other comparable testers, it can perform multiple valve tests simultaneously to maximize your productivity. And that’s not all. . .
|HYDROPRO™ UNIVERSAL STRAIGHT VALVE TESTER
The HYDROPRO™ Universal Straight Valve Tester – Clamp Fixture clamps and seals straight-bodied valves for pressure testing. Capable of hydrostatic tests up to 9700 psi and low-pressure air tests up to 125 psi. Our unique tilting feature rotates clamped valves 90 degrees from horizontal to vertical, ensuring removal of all air prior to pressurizing the system. Our patented Easy-Out Seal Plate Holders allow quick change-out of seal plates from flanged to other valve end type connections without the use of special tools, bolts, nuts or gaskets.
|HYDROPRO™ UNIVERSAL FLANGE VALVE TESTER
The HYDROPRO™ Universal Flange Valve Tester – Clamp Fixture clamps and seals flanged valves for pressure testing. Capable of hydrostatic tests up to 9700 psi and low-pressure air tests up to 125 psi. Our unique tilting feature rotates clamped valves 90 degrees from horizontal to vertical, ensuring removal of all air prior to pressurizing the system. Paired with a HYDROPRO™ Hydraulic Flange Seal (below) this is the best way to test API valves, where cross body pressure on the valve is not an option.
|HYDROPRO™ HYDRAULIC FLANGE SEAL
The HYDROPRO™ Hydraulic Flange Seal clamps and seals flanged valves for pressure testing and eliminates all those blind flanges. Paired with the HYDROPRO™ Universal Flange Valve Tester, it is capable of hydrostatic tests up to 9,700 psi and low pressure air tests up to 125 psi, enabling the user to test API valves that have multiple flanges as well as valves that aren’t straight, like elbow valves, 90’s and T’s.
|SAFETY RELIEF VALVE TESTER
The SAFETY RELIEF VALVE TESTER performs SRV set pressure and seat leakage tests. Our unique ‘J’ tube design allows for a free flow of air or water from the source to the SRV being tested providing a cushion of air under the SRV seat to prevent seat damage. The control panel is ergonomically designed 90 degrees from the clamp fixture to provide splash shield partition between the operator and the clamp table.
The CALDER TURN-AROUND-TESTER™, is designed for easy transportation to jobsites making it ideal for valve servicing companies or plant turn-arounds, eliminating the need for taking valves back to the shop. This flanged valve testing system conforms to specified API-598 and allows the operator to perform hydrostatic valve testing in non-traditional environments. Complete with clamp fixture and control console, the TURN-AROUND-TESTER™ is a one-stop shop for valve testing on-site.
|SMARTEST™ – DAAS
The SMARTEST™ – DAAS captures the performance of your valve test digitally. The system will allow the operator to isolate any point along the graph line of the test to display the numeric value of the pressure. Data can be reported in both .PDF and .CSV file formats. Built-in Wi Fi capability allows for easy and secure sharing of data. This rugged splash-proof (IP67) unit is ideal for industrial valve testing environments.
|SMARTEST™ – DACS
The SMARTEST PLUS ™ – DACS gives the user maximum control of the valve test allowing for increased and unrivaled productivity. It enables programmable, automated, hands-free control of the test procedure.The Variable Sample Rate provides a high density data stream which is suitable for most short term tests. With the ability to capture 10 samples per second, that’s over 216,000 data points in a 1 hour test. The SMARTEST PLUS ™ DACS system is upgradeable for multiple input channels giving the user more access to pressure or temperature data. Wi Fi enabled, the system allows the user to send results directly to any email address, while storing results on the DACS hard drive.
|MOBILE PUMP SYSTEM
When hydrostatic pressure is needed in the shop or in remote places the MOBILE PUMP SYSTEM is designed to take the pressure to the test piece.
|VALVE REPAIR MACHINES
Lightweight for easy handling and installation, our valve grinding and lapping machines span working ranges for gate valves from 1.3 to 39.4 inches (32 to 1000 mm). You can quickly change grinding disks and adjust the grind pressure during operation. We also have many specialty and custom products for valve repair applications. Give us a call, there’s no job we can’t do!
