News & Announcements

Wizard Valve a divison on Accede Energy Services is pleased to announce the purchase of new state of the art valve testing equipment.

Wizard Valve, Edson is now capable of testing in-line PSV valves with an AVK “lift assist” machine. The AVK is an electrohydraulic computerized testing unit that when connected to the valve records the pressure at which the valve lifts. The AVK connects to the stem of the safety valve and measures the vertical forces exerted by the spring and load train of the valve. These tests are preformed while your system is under pressure, therefore no loss of production due to removing safety relief valves. The documentation provided will satisfy ASME & Insurance inspectors.

Accede Energy Services Ltd. recently held its Christmas party. This year, employees suggested that instead of an open bar Accede should consider a cash bar with the proceeds going to a non-profit organization. Management at Accede agreed wholeheartedly and decided that whatever was raised from the cash bar, Accede would match with proceeds going to the Red Deer Youth and Volunteer Centre (YVC). YVC operates a youth shelter, the Boys and Girls Clubs, and Big Brothers Big Sisters programs.

In addition to the funds raised from drink tickets, Gord Fritz, CEO of Accede, made the comment if enough money was raised, he would ride a mechanical shark (like a bull, but with teeth). The Accede group rose to the occasion and was able to raise another $1,150 – forcing Mr. Fritz, suit and all, to ride the shark. Although his shark riding was much to be desired, Gord was thrilled with the amount of money raised for the YVC, stating, “Accede truly believes that the Youth are our future and by investing in youth today, we help to brighten the future.”

Altogether, Accede employees raised $5,180 in the evening to be presented to the Youth and Volunteer Centre.
