Score Valve Services Inc., part of the Score Group of Companies, officially opened their new 30,000 sq ft premises at 6410 Langfield Road, Houston on the 14th January, 2011.
On opening the new facility, Score Group plc Chairman, Charles Ritchie, remarked that this represented a major investment in the North American market and demonstrated our unwavering commitment to our customers in this area. He went on to add that this investment provided a significant platform from which we can further grow and develop our business relationships and customer support in this region.
With its growing inventory of valves and valve related products, Score Valve Services are able to provide a unique suite of valve related services such as valve and actuator supply, engineering services, enhanced valve testing, valve automation and control, valve condition monitoring, field services and after market support.
The new Houston workshop areas are extensively equipped with the latest technology and are designed to carry out valve repair and testing activities on all valve types, sizes and pressure classes up to 48” 600#. Enhanced valve testing capabilities now include cryogenic testing to –196° C, elevated temperature testing to +450° C, nitrogen gas testing, hydrostatic testing, cyclic testing and API 6A “PR2” type testing, thus allowing independent verification of valve products’ performance at actual operating service conditions.
The company also used this opportunity to launch its new Valve Leak Detection equipment in the Houston / North American market. The MIDAS Meter® uses acoustic emissions technology to detect and quantify leakage from valves in-line, helping reduce the potential negative effects of leaking valves in processes. The high sensitivity of the MIDAS Meter® allows maintenance and management personnel to focus their efforts and budgets on delivering the highest possible valve performance through condition based maintenance and predictive maintenance.
Robert Murdoch, President of Score Valve Services inc., added that this was a great day for the Score Group and its customers here in Houston as well as the wider North American market and that he looked forward to working with his local team and growing the business from these new premises.
