Valve endurance tester – VET

The SCITEQ valve endurance tester (VET) is designed to establish whether single taps, combination taps or ball valves are able to resist the stress and impact they are subjected to through time.

Product highlights:

  • high accuracy temperature control
  • verification of mechanical endurance
  • visibility of test in progress
  • user-friendly operation
  • water recycling
  • easy-to-use touch panel PLC
  • high flexibility gripping tools


Testing of mechanical endurance occurs in accordance with EN 200:2008 section 12.1 and EN 13828 section 7.6.

The complex yet user-friendly VET accurately performs verification of mechanical endurance by testing the behaviour of the operating mechanism through a number of opening and closing operations with water at specified pressure/temperature/dwell time.

The tester is able to perform up to 200.000 cycles and the hot and cold cycle time may be entered according to test requirement.

The VET has been designed with two detachable inspection windows enabling monitoring of the test in progress

The VET solution complies with the standards EN 200 EN 13 828 and equivalent.
