Stainless Fittings. Reliability and performance you can trust


BIOBORE QUALITY & TECHNICAL

Certification

Stainless Fittings (SFL) and Dairy Pipe Lines (DPL) are manufacturers of a wide range of stainless steel fittings, valves and bespoke fabricated units for the Bio-Processing, Pharmaceutical, Food, and Drink industries. The companies are regularly assessed to the ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management standard.

As part of our ongoing commitment to quality, the company has invested in systems that enable the traceability of materials used in both standard and fabricated products. These systems provide for the recording and reporting of quality and inspection data from various points on the manufacturing cycle.

Products meeting the ASME Bio Processing Equipment standard (BPE), will always be accompanied by full material certificates either with the goods or by email, or both if required. Where needed, SFL will provide a full quality dossier to cover project work.

The following process certificates can be made readily available when specified with the enquiry:

  • Welding Certificates
  • Welder approvals and weld procedures for each weld type and size of material.
  • A weld plan and weld log for each item including any weld filler rod if used.
  • CD Video files of each internal weld by its ID and part number immediately after welding.
  • Welding machine calibration certificates.
  • Orbital weld machine setting parameters and / or pre-weld coupons.

Surface Finish Certificates

A surface finish print-out for each item. A cleaning procedure document. A passivation certificate or electro polish certificate as required.

Functional Test Certificates

We will supply a pressure test certificate and pressure gauge calibration certificate to help with your obligations under the Pressure Equipment Directive.  Additionally a dye penetrant test certificate or radiographic image and report can be supplied.

Declaration Documentation for EC Directives

Our valves meet the Pressure Equipment Directive (PED) and in some cases the Machinery Safety Directive (for powered valves). Selected valves are manufactured to comply with the ATmospheric EXplosive directive (ATEX). A safety declaration will be supplied in accordance with these directives.

Additionally, DPL offer a Certificate of Conformance for all products supplied. Certificates depicting seal type, FDA schedule number and operational pressure test are also available for all valves.
