To meet all the codes and standards listed above, we are required to certify our welding personnel to various practices. The qualifications our welders obtain allow us to perform weld repair, upgrade, and/or overlay for most of the weldable alloys poured. We have training and support programs, as well as third party certification activities from European Registrars (TUV-SUD), that support our practices. Additionally, we have a NAVSEA compliant Welder Workmanship Program, required for welding Navy and DOD (U.S. Department of Defense) work.
Our welding personnel are experts at the processing of castings needing repair.
- Nuclear and NAVSEA – SF&E’s Quality Assurance Department performs annual vision screenings with our welders to ensure they meet the requirements of the ASME BPVC, Part 1, Section III for nuclear work and NAVSEA Tech Pub.
- Nondestructive Evaluation – We ensure our welders are certified in accordance with the American Society of Non-Destructive Testing SNT-TC-1A Liquid Penetrant (PT) and Visual Testing (VT) by our on-site NDE (Nondestructive Evaluation) Level III. This allows them to verify their own work prior to our Quality Assurance Department Level II personnel certifying the preparation to weld or final welded locations.
- Pressure Equipment Directive – To meet the stringent requirement for welding castings in accordance to the Pressure Equipment Directive (2014/EU/68 PED), our welders are qualified in accordance with EN287.
- Broad Range of Material Grades – SF&E is qualified to weld many European grades of material as well as over 100 material grades for PED Particular Material Assessment (PMA) orders.
When you place an order at SF&E, we have the programs and personnel to ensure that welding can be performed and will be done so to meet all needs and requirements. To learn more about our welding capabilities, contact SF&E at email@example.com.
