API 610 10th : 2004 / ISO 13709 : 2003 (OH2)
Testing & NDT
All A Series pumps are built to stringent quality control procedures as part of our ISO9001:2000 quality management system. We offer a variety of tests and NDT to suit your exact requirements as detailed below:
|Pump test||Test standard||Acceptance criteria||Standard|
|Hydrostatic||API 610 / ISO 13709||API 610 / ISO 13709 (1.5 X MAWP)||YES|
|Head and flow||API 610 / ISO 13709||ISO 9906 Grade 1||YES|
|Mechanical run - 1 hour at rated duty||API 610 / ISO 13709||API 610 / ISO 13709|
|Mechanical run - 4 hours at rated duty||API 610 / ISO 13709||API 610 / ISO 13709|
|NPSH at each test point||API 610 / ISO 13709||API 610 / ISO 13709|
|Noise - single point at 1m||API 610 / ISO 13709||Customer datasheet||YES|
|Vibration - FFT spectrum at each test point||API 610 / ISO 13709||API 610 / ISO 13709||YES|
|Bearing bracket resonance||API 610 / ISO 13709||Mutual agreement|
To compliment the final test we also have a number of Non Destructive Tests (NDT) that can be supplied with the pump. The following table details our standard tests:
|Dyepenetrant of machined surfaces||Pressure containing castings only|
|Dyepenetrant of cast surfaces||Pressure containing castings only|
|Dyepenetrant of welds||Drain & seal pipework (if fitted)|
|Positive Material Identification||Excludes minor components (nuts & bolts etc)|
|Radiography||Welds (pressure pipework)|
|Castings - shot plan (critical areas)|
|Hardness report||NACE (Certain materials only - please ask for details)|
|Various motor tests|

A full range of Pump testing and NDT can be tailored to suit your exact requirements.
* Pressure containing parts include; volute casing, Casing cover & mechanical seal. Process wetted parts include additional shaft, impeller, wear rings & impeller hub cap, lockwasher and nut.
