Bestobell valves approved by four class societies

Bestobell Marine said it has obtained full type approval from four class societies for its range of globe and check cryogenic valves.

DNV-GL, Lloyds Register, Bureau Veritas and American Bureau of Shipping have all approved Bestobell’s valves for use in cryogenic applications on ships which includes valves used in cargo systems on LNG carriers and bunker vessels, LNG fuel gas systems, LNG regasification systems and LNG reliquifaction systems, the company revealed in a statement.

Bestobell Marine had to obtain full type approvals for its cryogenic globe and check valves due to the requirements from the IACS class societies changing at the beginning of 2014.

The new rules required Bestobell to have type approval for its products or be subjected to “excessive testing requirements of its valves for every order they produced which would have resulted in excessive testing costs having to be passed on to clients,” the company said.

With the type approval, Bestobell can continue to cryogenically test 10% of each type of valve in an order witnessed by a class surveyor, it added.
