AMPO values quality and therefore our operating and production processes are implemented and controlled by a quality assurance system, certified since 1991 under the ISO 9001 Standard, API Spec Q1&6D and SIL 3 and accredited by the most important external organizations in the market, such as Lloyd’s Register, Bureau Veritas (BV), Det Norske Veritas (DNV) and American Bureau (ABS).
All our production areas undergo intermediate and final inspections. These are documented with the corresponding certifications and reports, directly coordinated by an efficient, highly qualified team and always in accordance with internal and external Quality Assurance standards and procedures. Every step, from purchase order receipt through procurement, NDT, machining, assembling, testing, painting and packaging is in accordance with regulations stipulated in QA Manuals.
Moreover, we test all our valves before delivery and these tests can be made together with the customer at our facilities. Here we have specially prepared working areas where the inspectors can work comfortably and move around freely.
We are also equipped with the most modern testing facilities and highly qualified Internal Quality Control Personnel to ensure the reliability of our valves. We carry out Non Destructive Testing such as X-ray, Dye Penetrant, Ultrasonic Test, Magnetic Particle and PMI (Positive Material Identification), Impact Tests, Visual inspections, Hydrostatic Tests, Pneumatic Tests, Cryogenic or Low Temperature Tests, Fugitive Emission Tests, Vacuum Tests, High Temperature Tests, High Pressure Tests, etc.
Our management is completely based on the strictest quality standards, which is the foundation to enable AMPO to develop the product which best satisfies our customer.
