Tekomar was recently entrusted with a development project for the design of a valve testbed for a local manufacturer. The installation basically simulates the right operating condition to test different designs of non-return valves.
In order to get most comprehensive data the testbed includes various monitoring systems around the specimen.
In a close cooperation with the client’s experts the concept was elaborated in a first step. Afterwards, Tekomar was focusing on the detailing of the assembly including all required and optional parts. Mechanical simulations (finite elements) were conducted for optimization of the individual parts and in order to get a safe and durable operation under different critical load condition. Manufacturing specialists were consulted to optimize the manufacturing aspects, finding the right materials and machining processes.
A complete set of final machining drawings was finished and delivered in due time.
