Insitu Seat test of Top entry ball Valve

Insitu Seat test of Top entry ball Valve

We have a TEBV ins situ repair & Seat test work in my upcoming TAR project in Kazakhstan, there is only one possible way to do a seat integrity test is from Plug on body itself, I am confused as this not the right way to do a seat integrity test...
please advise guys, i will be highly appreciate your usual support on this

Where is the plug? A drawing would help.

RE: Insitu Seat test of Top entry ball Valve

It's not really clear what void that drain plug has access to. So you can't really see if when the valve is closed it will be able to see the fluid inside the valve.

You could test each seat from outside to in, but not really inside to out.

RE: Insitu Seat test of Top entry ball Valve

That’s not the best design on many fronts...

Looks like single pistons effect seats so you wouldn’t be able to pressurise the cavity and the seat seal.

ESV? Emergency shut-down valve? My recollection is that these are 1 SPE and 1 DPE seat? Seats look the same to me??

You’ve also got a cavity relief hole drilled in the ball? On a clad ball? That’s going to be tricky at best to achieve...
