Raw materials and finishes
We check the raw materials by random sampling, as do our suppliers. The finished products, as well as the equipment, are continually tested in order to ensure that the requirements from customers, authorities and others are fulfilled. 100 % of the alarm systems are tested to ensure they are in proper working order. Further more, continuous sampling of foam quality is carried out for both straight pipes and fittings. The test results are documented and followed up upon and the products are marked according to current standard specifications.
SP Technical Research Institute of Sweden perform tests on district heating pipes twice a year according to the functional requirements in SS-EN 253 as regards:
- Tensile strength
- Water absorption
- Compressive strength
- Cavities and seeds
- Cellular size.
The test results are documented in official reports. The welding seams are controlled with X-rays in compliance with SS-EN 253, or according to customer requirements, when these exceed the standards.
