Quality control

The quality of the equipment manufactured and our ability to meet all the technical contractual commitments within the agreed deadlines are our best and constant assets.

Our quality department ensures compliance with regulations, specifications and codes.

It ensures, through its certified inspectors (COFREND and ASN.TC.1A), the realisation and the follow-up of all the destructive and non-destructive tests required and/or specifically requested such as:

  • X-ray and Y-ray [Gamma ray] tests
  • Ultrasonic (UT), Phased Array and TOFD [Time of Flight Diffraction] tests
  • Magnetoscopic Testing (MT)
  • Penetrant Testing (PT)
  • Testing and measurements of Ferrite rates (austenitic and austenitic-ferritic duplex stainless steels)
  • Hardness tests
  • Chemistry control by PMI [Process Mass Intensity] (X-ray Fluorescence) or by spectrometry
  • Macrographic and Micrographic tests
  • Tensile tests, bending tests, impact bending tests,
  • Corrosion testing
  • Eddy Current or IRIS testing
  • Air, Helium or Vacuum Leakage Test
  • Laser flatness test
  • Endoscopic test
  • Hydraulic (up to 650 bars) or air tests and trials
  • Hydraulic Test with Acoustic Emission
  • 3D Laser Scanning
  • Weight Verification (weighing)
  • Topometric surveys on site or in the workshop

At the end of the manufacturing and inspection operations, our Quality department provides a complete manufacturer’s file for each piece of equipment produced, containing drawings, calculation notes, welding specifications, LOFC [List of Manufacturing Operations and Control], material certificates, destructive and non-destructive test reports, inspection and hydraulic test certificates, coating inspection certificates (paint, TSA, etc.), operating instructions, etc.

In addition to ISO 9001 certification, our organisation is in particular also certified/accredited “Stamp U” and “Stamp R” by ASME [American Society of Mechanical Engineers] and The National Board of Boiler & Pressure Vessel Inspectors.
