STRESS ANALYSIS

Valdes' stress analysis services provide industry leading expertise on piping evaluations and pipe support surveillance for existing facilities as well as engineering and design expertise on new piping installations.

Valdes offers a unique approach to surveillance programs for high-energy piping systems with pressures greater than 3,500 psi and temperatures over 1,000°F. These programs typically focus on critical piping systems (i.e. main steam, hot and cold reheat steam and turbine extraction steam) and include hot and cold walk-downs of piping, spring hangers, and pipe supports. Root Cause Analysis can determine the cause of problems and provide solutions.
