Testing & NDT

Amarinth

All Made to order pumps are built to stringent quality control procedures as part of our ISO9001:2008 quality management system. We offer a variety of tests and NDT to suit your exact requirements whether you need full API 610 testing or a simple hydrostatic test. Our standard test procedures are detailed below:

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:

NDT
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 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, seal housing & mechanical seal. Process wetted parts include additional shaft & impeller
