Certification

Certification for DPL Products

 

From the vast array of published standards there are a number that are key to each industry. The accepted way of confirming that the standard has been complied with is for the manufacturer or service provider to issue a form of certificate with the goods or service.

 

There are many types of certificate but typically they can be categorised as Certificates of compliance, Test certificates, Inspection certificates or reports and Certificates of acquired skill or attainment.

 

DPL is an assessed company to the ISO 9001:2008 Quality Assurance standard and certifies that its products meet the relevant standards the product was designed for and also where modifications are made to suit a specific purpose.   We provide a Certificate of Conformance with each order dispatched.   Our seal and gasket components are food contact safe and we provide certification for these that states the relevant FDA schedule number for the material.

 

A Valve Test Certificate is available for all DPL supplied valves.   This will supply information on the materials used, the seal material and seal standards, the method of test and the test pressures, and the internal surface finish.   Component Material certificates for the product wetted surfaces of the valve are also available with this certificate.

 

 

EU safety law

 

A statement of compliance is normally a legal requirement evoked by a European Directive.   DPL issue these with every valve and actuator in line with the requirements of the particular commodity type along with our recommended valve installation procedures.

 

Some of the legislation affecting DPL products includes the Pressure Equipment Directive (PED), designed for pressure bearing products safety and the Machinery Directive that requires the design of the machinery is safe to operate and presents no hazard in operation.

DPL produces valves that comply with the electrical bias ATEX directive, for safety of operation in potentially explosive atmospheres which also seeks to prevent ignition through static discharge on non electrical products.

 

There are many other specialist certificates that have not been covered above.   If you require a particular approval certificate for the components we can supply for your installation please enquire at the time of order with your DPL Sales contact.
