FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE / PRURGENT
SGS was awarded a twelve-month contract by Jaraguá Equipamentos in Brazil to perform comprehensive third party testing services for the construction of a new Refinery—RENEST—in the northeast of the country in January 2012. During the contract, SGS’s team of experts will conduct valve and instrumentation calibration and maintenance.
Jaraguá Equipamentos is heavily involved in the rapid growth of industry in Brazil, with its presence felt at all stages of industrial project implementation, with construction of its new refinery now underway.
When building a new refinery, it is of utmost importance to ensure the quality and safety of the parts involved in its construction. With 12,000 manual valves requiring testing before installation, Jaraguá Equipamentos needed first-rate expertise and experience in valve and instrumentation calibration and maintenance.
SGS seeks to provide quality valve and instrumentation calibration and maintenance to assure the accuracy of industrial instrumentation and valves in accordance with relevant standards, knowing that the accuracy and reliability of the instruments and devices designed to monitor, control and supervise industrial processes is vital.
SGS will be verifying the calibration of all 12,000 manual valves, including ball, gate and check valves. The leaking test methodology used will be in accordance with the American Petroleum Institute (API) and Petrobras Standards, with on-site calibration taking place in mobile laboratories. SGS’ testing services will ensure the safety and top quality of all manual valves before installation in the new refinery, thus reducing the risk of failure and discontinuity of service when the plant begins operation.
