Automated Validation Tester II Decker Technology, Inc
Introduction • The AVT-II is an automated validation tester for any type gaslift valve. • A computer directs the AVT-II to test opening and closing pressure, effective stem travel, loadrate, port leak rate, and R ratio. • A Pass/Fail indicator shows the status of all tests.
AVT-II Capabilities • Test any valve at pressures to 3000 psig • Save, print, or post test results to network • Can test 3 valves simultaneously • Uses very little nitrogen • Select any convenient units of measure • Requires very little training • Much more accurate and consistent than manual testing
AVT-II Software Features • Perpetual software license with purchase • Stations can be run individually or simultaneously • Once valve is loaded, performs a complete set of tests in less than 20 seconds. • Calibration routine for each test station • Stores data from each test in spreadsheet format • Test screen shows real time pressure trace of each station as test is conducted • User inputs Pass/Fail criteria
AVT-II Hardware Features • Components are highest quality… • Sensotec transducers +/-.1% accuracy • High reliability solenoids • Data Acquisition system by National Instruments • All stainless steel fittings and manifold • Rated to 3000 psig working pressure
AVT-II Hardware Features • Small desktop footprint (15x18 inches) • Changing valves is quick and easy. About 2 minutes. • Run over 3000 tests on a single bottle of nitrogen (New nitrogen bottle at 2500 psig and valve set at Pvct = 1275 psig) • Change valves in one station while other stations continue to test.
Business Justification • Use the AVT-II to qualify valves during setup in the gaslift workshop • Use the AVT-II to test valves returned from the field. Build a data base of valve use. • Testing is consistent and more accurate than analog gauges • Safe and easy to use. Does not require an experienced gaslift shop technician
Business Justification • Print a certificate showing… • Ptro, Pvct, R ratio, Port leak rate, Stem travel, and loadrate • Date of test, Valve type, and serial number • Reliable • Field Proven • Much more thorough testing of valve than current gaslift shop practices
Business Justification • Reduce the number of wireline re-entries due to failed or under performing valves (field proven in Oman!) • Maintain a database of the number of times a valve has been re-used • Added assurance that the valves sent to the field will perform as engineer anticipates. • Better gaslift performance and less wireline work.
AVT-II Warranty • Parts warranted for 1 year from date of implementing. • Labor free of charge if repair required • Travel expenses at cost • Software maintenance free for first year • Software upgrade to new operating system available at cost. • Telephone support available free for first year of service.
AVT-II Availability • 1, 2, or 3 station AVT-II available 15 weeks from receipt of order • Spare parts kit available • User manual included
