Cortland is committed to providing a service and product which is second to none. To ensure that we achieve and maintain consistency of quality and supply, we have a quality system that is approved to BS EN ISO 9001:1994 by Lloyds Register Quality Assurance. Our product covers areas of applications which offer life support, and therefore quality assurance and control is paramount. We maintain this standard across the complete range of product supplied by Cortland.
In an effort to support the product and customer requirement we offer the capability to test the finished product to customer or regulation specification with appropriate and comprehensive documentation. Some market areas require more stringent test regimes than others, and we have the experience and expertise to offer the correct level of test and documentation accordingly.
Specific Tests Include:
All umbilicals products have the hose and cable components FAT tested to agreed levels and certificates supplied with the goods.
Extra testing can be carried out as required to agreed levels.
Cortland can flush, charge with representative diving gases at elevated temperatures, then sample, test, record and report on umbilicals to minimise Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s). VOC’s are carbon compounds which can be released as gases from certain solids, plastics and liquids.
Oxygen (O2) Cleaning
We can also provide certain hose types suitable for high purity oxygen end use. These can be oxygen cleaned to an approved procedure.
When designing, manufacturing and testing umbilicals Cortland observe IMCA’s recommendations laid out in:
Design of Surface Diving Systems IMCAD023
Design of Mixed Gas Systems IMCAD037.
Design of Sat Diving Systems IMCAD024
