Chemical & Mechanical Testing Laboratory
We have a well equipped laboratory run by qualified technicians. The laboratory has a universal Testing Machine, Hardness Testing Machine (for mechanical test), an Electro Analyzer and all ferrous & non-ferrous testing equipment.
The company has it’s own foundry. It has one 500-kg Oil Furnace, one 100-kg Oil Furnace and four 50-kg Pt Furnaces for non-ferrous casting. The total capacity of non-ferrous casting is 2000 kg/day. Most of the non-ferrous casting are done by sell moulding technique. The company is planning to install one 250-kg Induction Furnace during the current year for Stainless Steel Casting which at present is being sourced from a recognized supplier. The total non-ferrous casting capacity of the Company stands at 750 tonnes per year involving consumption of cast iron, cast carbon steel & stainless steel casting to the tune of 1000 Tonnes per year.
The company has one Forging Shop equipped with one Forging Press, two Power Presses and a Hydraulic Press. Forging of our components of valves is undertaken in our own forging shop.
The Company has six workshops; two for machines of non-ferrous parts, one for stainless steel parts, two for cast iron & cast steels parts and one for grinding & shot blasting.
Our workshops are equipped with state-of-the-art machines like SPMs, CNC, in addition to the best available lathe machine drill machines, centreless grinders, surface grinders, burnishing machines, slotting machines & radial drills.
The total number of the machines is around 200. We have a capacity to produce valves upto 300mm. Two heat treatment furnaces are also installed for treatment of required parts. There is also one vinyl coating plant for dip-insulation on the handles of ball valves.
We implement strict quality control at all stages of production. The raw material is thoroughly tested before going in for casting. The castings are carefully checked before these are sent for machining. During machining all parts are checked with ‘go’ and ‘no go’ gauges for sizing. After machining the parts are assembled and the complete valve is put through the required pressure test.
The Company has it’s own Testing Shop for testing of Valves & Boiler Mountings. At the testing shop hydraulic tests up to 3000 lbs/sq inch can be carried out with the available hydraulic pumps. The Air Compressor caters to all air tests. Two boilers of 250 lbs/sq inch & 100 lbs/sq inch capacities are used for conducting steam tests. Every piece manufactured by us is tested for the required pressure before it is packed for final shipment.
Design-Development and Continual Improvement
We have in-house designing facility, which is staffed by professionally qualified design engineers who work on the latest AutoCAD systems. After the valves are designed the desired patterns and Die Development Shop, which has a milling station, pantograph and required lathe machines.
With our focus on quality and precision, the Company plans to install some more additional CNC machines, Shot Blasting, Sand Blasting, Milling, Pantograph (Tools room) in the near future.
