Azbil Corp. announced that Azbil Kyoto built new flow test facilities for testing product characteristics of industrial control valves for the purpose of technological development and ensuring products meet international standards. This is part of Azbil’s efforts in further expanding its overseas business, the company says.

Control valves used in process automation in oil, petrochemical and other industries are required to have a high level of control functionality. To meet such needs, it is necessary to accurately test and evaluate newly designed products to ensure that their research and development conform to the wide range of demands in international markets.

As such, new flow test facilities for measuring control valve characteristics were built at Azbil Kyoto, which is a key production site for the company's flow measurement equipment. These facilities are able to carry out tests for flow pressure (water and air) that conform to international standard, IEC60534-2-3. Combined with the existing flow test facilities, products can now be designed meet demands in both Japan and international markets.

The evaluation test procedure for the newly constructed flow test facilities complies with IEC and other international standards and has been integrated as the control logic, with operation and measurement automatically carried out by Azbil’s harmonized automation system, Harmonas-DEO.
