QUALITY - TESTING & INSPECTION

Standard Quality Control & Testing

Our Quality Control verifies all processes from material receipt to final customer inspection including liaison with approved Third Party inspection and certifying authorities where required. All products are supplied with certified test reports, which include chemicalphysical analysis and hydrostatic pressure tests. NDT and other specified tests are included in the final certification, if requested. Standard testing is carried out in full compliance with the API , BS, AS, DIN standards applicable to the manufacturing specifications. GA drawings, hydrostatic shell & leakage tests plus mechanical and chemical analysis certificates supplied in accordance with EN10204.3.1.

Pressure Testing

All valves are high pressure hydrostatic tested on body, seat, back seat and low pressure air tested on seat to relevant shut off class. Testing is performed to API 598 or API 6D or other applicable standard such as MSS. Furthermore all valves are visually inspected to MSS-SP55.

Special Testing

Special product testing includes high pressure gas testing, low temperature cryogenic testing, body and stem helium leakage testing, endurance testing, bending testing and high temperature testing. Other specifically dedicated procedures are available and can be performed on request according to our customers’ specifications.

QUALITY CONTROL

A. Project Supply - Inspections

Australian Pipeline Valve (APV) can arrange client or 3rd party witnessing:
• Inspections at sub-contracting units
• Final testing witness inspections
• Certification review

Also functional tests for special applications:
• Low temperature tests
• Cryogenic tests
• Fugitive emission tests

C. Project Inspection Activities

For any of your orders, APV can perform or arrange, with strict attention to detail, the following activities. All activities are kept under full control of professional, specialist staff.

ACTIVITYSTANDARDUPON REQUEST
Preliminary check to verify that the supplier has put in production the order according to the client's specifications, rules and parameters. APV- Australian Pipeline Valve  
Follow up and expedite visits (on major projects) to verify that production is underway and the sub contractors comply with contractual delivery dates.   APV- Australian Pipeline Valve
Final review, or witnessing of inspection activities to confirm the final supply stages.   APV- Australian Pipeline Valve
Certification review APV- Australian Pipeline Valve  
Witnessed inspection during NDT, performed by independent authorised laboratories (UL, MPI, PMI, DPI, X-ray tests)   APV- Australian Pipeline Valve
Witnessed inspection during special product/ equipment testing (low pressure tests, helium tests, fugitive emission tests)   APV- Australian Pipeline Valve
Dimensional checks APV- Australian Pipeline Valve  
Painting inspection APV- Australian Pipeline Valve  
Packing inspection   APV- Australian Pipeline Valve

When required, all the above activities are recorded by APV and duly reported to its clients with written and photographic reports.

The above services, usually agreed upon at the time of order, ensures the client that the quality of the product is assured at a fixed price, preventing delays in delivery that may be caused by late detection of any non-conformity.
