We use FEA (Finite Element Analysis) to optimise the strength and geometry
of our components and CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) analyses to
validate different product designs prior to creating physical prototypes,
enabling us to predict consequences in cases where it is impossible to create
full scale tests on physical products.
ISO/TS 29001 is an industry-specific standard for the oil and gas industry
based on ISO 9001, but with stricter requirements for control measures and
risk management, in that key issues such as staff training, traceability of
materials and obtained test results must be documented.
We make our own test and production equipment, and in our flow lab,
we conduct thorough prototype and life cycle tests prior to release for
production. New product types are generally field tested in co-operation with
end users before final launch.
Production takes place in several countries in Europe and Asia as well as in
the US and Saudi Arabia. AVK International A/S manufactures valves and
