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