We carry out a FAT (Factory Acceptance Test) on the majority of our drag chain systems. Many are witnessed by our clients, or their representatives and we also invite (when specification demands), third party witnessing and certification from various approval bodies.
On demanding applications, or ones with peculiar application parameters, we have an independent FEA (Finite Element Analysis) carried out, which enables us to confirm materials and design suitability, as well as offering the client added peace of mind. We have tested all aspects of each particular project, which can be as simple as pure carrying capability, right up to seismic, snow/ice loads, wind loads or any combination demanded by the application.
THIRD PARTY VERIFICATION
Metreel invite third party involvement in many projects, through notable bodies such as DNV, Lloyds, API. Their involvement can vary between simple data checking to design verification, witness testing and manufacturing process examination and verification, checking of data books and records.
DOCUMENTS & RECORD BOOKS
Metreel have in place various data collection records and provide the client with all their documentation requirements as stipulated in each individual contract. As an example, our document record books may include any third party contribution requirements, copies of FEA reports, FAT data, material certificates and test records. Operation and maintenance literature, along with user manuals, can be included also to customer requirements.
