The World’s Best Line-Up of Advanced Valve Testing Equipment is Now Available!

The World’s Best Line-Up of Advanced Valve Testing Equipment is Now Available!

With vastly superior quality, safety, durability, flexibility, performance and support owning a CALDER Advanced Valve Testing System is by far the most flexible and cost-effective way to manage your valve testing program, reduce your total cost of ownership and maximize your return on investment over the life of the test system.

Here are a few reasons why you should call CALDER today to discuss your valve testing program:

Infinitely configurable to meet your exact needs. The new CALDER tester platform is the most flexible and versatile system in the industry, so we can give you exactly what you need without charging you for things you don’t need.

Field upgradable/expandable to evolve with your business and maximize your ROI. Our modular, common-platform design ensures that all equipment and accessories are plug-and-play compatible, so we can seamlessly upgrade or expand your system in the field at any time 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 over the life of the system.

Every component in the pressure circuit is OEM-certified to the maximum specified testing pressure of the system for increased safety, quality and durability. Most other OEMs skimp on quality by using components rated at only a fraction of the full test pressure. Check this carefully when investing in a valve testing system. Nothing but the best for our customers!

Test multiple valves concurrently to maximize your productivity. With the CALDER HYDROPRO™ console, you can test on one port while setting up the next workpiece on the other port. This minimizes downtime and maximizes your productivity. No other comparable tester can do this!

Standard 2-year warranty is the longest in the industry! Unlike many of our competitors, we don’t skimp on quality, so we can put our money where our mouth is. And — ask us how to extend your warranty out to 5 years . . .

Maximize your productivity with the CALDER SMARTEST intelligent data acquisition and analysis system (DAAS), or SMARTEST PLUS™ data acquisition and control system (DACS) for programmable, automated control of your testing procedure. These systems help to boost productivity, reduce the learning curve and eliminate user errors.  Built-in WiFi capability makes it easy to share data securely and keep records. The rugged industrial electronics and splash-proof (IP67) enclosure make the system ideal for use in industrial valve testing environments.

CALDER testers are easier to use and more efficient than anything else on the market. The CALDER HYDROPRO console is intuitive to use and our unique quick-fill water circuit reduces overall test time. Our HYDROPRO clamping fixtures incorporate features such as rapid advance and retract mechanisms for quicker testing, patented Easy Out Seal Plates™ for changing among valve sizes quickly without the need for special tools, optional hydraulic tilt feature for easier valve loading and complete air removal resulting in better safety and test results, unique clamp box cut-outs to accommodate more types/shapes of valves including valves with actuators, and many more user-friendly features.

CALDER test systems are more accurate than other comparable testers. Ask us to show you how we achieve this superior performance by design.

CALDER systems are easier to maintain than other testers on the market, saving you time and money and making it easy to keep your system in top condition.  Quick-connect gages make calibrations easy, and all consumable/maintenance components are easy to access from the front of the machine. To make it even easier, take advantage of our CALDER CARE Total Preventative Maintenance Program.

Our Patent Pending Safety Interlock system is the best in the industry, with interlocking knobs and valve handles that will not release the clamp pressure until the test pressure valve is opened and internal test pressure is released.

CE certified and available worldwide!  All CALDER products are available for sale worldwide, including in the European Union and other locations where CE certification is required. With regional offices and service centers in the USA, Germany, the United Kingdom, Dubai and Singapore, and sales people and authorized representatives covering the globe — France, Norway, Poland, Russia and Japan to name but a few — we are ready to serve you wherever you are!

ISO 9001 certified manufacturing ensures all CALDER products are built to the highest quality standards.  Most other OEMs don’t meet this high standard.

All products are manufactured in the USA. Unlike most other providers, we don’t use cheaply-made components and materials from substandard suppliers and we don’t manufacture in so-called «low labor cost» places. Our ISO certified factory in Oregon has more than 50 years of manufacturing experience and a legendary reputation for quality!
