OCTOBER 2017
50 MAJOR AUDITS IN 10 YEARS

We hit a major milestone recently with the successful completion of the last audit in October 2017, whereby we completed a total of 50 audits on our company over the last 10 years.

From each audit we come out a better, stronger, quality-driven company, we can only improve taking in all the collective points raised and implementing them into our quality system.

Not one audit is the same, each and every customer will find areas where a manufacturer can improve; this is a positive, and the challenge then remains with the manufacturer to ensure what has been learnt from the audit is absorbed and indoctrinated into the company's quality system.

50 audits - PASSED.

A couple of months ago, we have launched our YouTube channel featuring a series of videos on technology, design, manufacturing and testing of ball, gate and check valves that we will upload on a regular basis. Over the next two years we will be producing short videos on all our major engineered products, this is a great way to showcase our references with our customers and the industry. We are sure they will be very popular with engineers, as they will give more insight into the valve manufacturing and will have a highly educational content based on practical examples.

In the future, we will produce similar videos for cryogenic, high temperature, subsea, HIPPS, ESDV applications, metal seated/ gas testing, API 6A and many more special applications using our ball or gate valves. Should you be interested in any particular topics, write to us and we shall address them.

The opening and closing of each video will have our signature theme to it, as they say on YouTube, don't forget to like, subscribe and leave your comments below.

ROUND TABLE AT ENGINSOFT ON FEA ON SEALING

Few months ago we participated at EnginSoft 1st Round Table for the industrial valves with applications in the Energy, Chemical and Oil and Gas Sector. At the event participated 10 valve manufacturers and sealing companies. The event was held at EnginSoft offices in Italy.

The scope was to put together ideas in an open discussion on Final Element Analysis on sealings.

Enginsoft has illustrated the simulation of the sealing with soft or special materials (graphite), highlighting how, thru ad-hoc mathematical models, one can obtain a good correspondence with the experimental data and thus an efficient approximation of the real behaviour of the objects.

New topics for discussion for future round tables have been defined: variations regarding the industry regulations regarding FEA, method analysis for seat-ball contact point for quick closing times, TCC coating on the internal areas of the valves.

EnginSoft is a premier consulting firm in the field of Simulation Based Engineering Sciences (SBES) with a global presence. Throughout its long history, it has been at the forefront of technological innovation and remains a catalyst for change in the way SBES and CAE technologies in general are applied to solve even the most complex industrial problems with a high degree of reliability. http://www.enginsoft.com
