Hi All, Customer specified 3.2 m

Hi All, Customer specified 3.2 m

Hi All,

Customer specified 3.2 material certification for pump lifting points. Is it possible to provide 3.2 material certification for lifting points. Please advise us.

RE: Hi All, Customer specified 3.2 m

Can you elaborate more about the question?
And, is this related to the pump question, and may be suitable and move the posting to the "Pump Forum"?

RE: Hi All, Customer specified 3.2 m

Hi mk3223,

It is related to material certification on lifting points of all equipment ( like pressure vessel, pump, valve and etc.) Please advice.

RE: Hi All, Customer specified 3.2 m

In short, the material certificate must be certified by a third party inspector (TUV, Lloyd's,...). The 3.1 certificate issued by the manufacturer is not valid.

RE: Hi All, Customer specified 3.2 m

I would clarify whether the client is expecting a 3.2 type certifcate for the integrity and strength of the actual lifting part (hook, eye etc.). In other words, a third party inspection certificate against the design and test of a parts ability to withstand a certain mass. A material certificate will be required as well as documentation/test& procedure, to demonstrate the parts integrity. 3.1/3.2 certificates are not just for materials.

Per ISO, only the term Safety Valve is used regardless of application or design.

Dear MGZmechanical & avalveman,

Thanks for the response.

eBook - Mastering Tolerances for Machined Parts
When making CNC machined parts, mastering tolerances can be challenging. Are general tolerances good enough? When does it make sense to call out for tighter tolerances? Do you need a better understanding of fits, datums, or GD&T? Learn about these topics and more in Xometry's new e-book. Download Now
eBook – How to Choose the Correct Corrosion Testing Method
When designing a metal component, engineers have to consider how susceptible certain alloys are to corrosion in the final product’s operating environment. In a recent study by NACE (National Association of Corrosion Engineers), it was estimated that the direct and indirect costs of corrosion in the United States is approximately 6.2% of the GDP. In 2016, that cost exceeded $1 trillion dollars for the first time. Download Now
