Quality Assurance and Quality Control (QA/QC)
Performing third party quality assurance and quality control (QA/QC) during design, manufacturing and construction of sophisticated process equipment is of utmost importance to certify a proper quality of the final product.
PROWECO’s independent QA/QC during large retrofits or during construction of new equipment normally consists of the following steps:
✓ Setting of technical specifications for the
request for quotation
✓ Review and comparison of the vendors proposals
✓ Review of technical specifications and manufacturing drawings
✓ Review of time schedules
✓ Manufacturing control
✓ Construction control
✓ Base line survey / Check out
PROSWECO’s QA/QC often results in minor but also in major design changes and modifications. PROSWECO’s proven experience in inspections of process equipment such as Recovery Boilers, Power Boilers, Digesters, Evaporators, Heat Exchangers and Power Piping as well as our vast experience in failure analysis is the core in our independent QA/QC assignments. By performing proper QA/QC the industry can minimise the risk of receiving process equipment with a quality less than what should be expected. PROSWECO has, among several other assignments, performed the third party QA/QC of the main process equipment, such as the boilers and the digesters, for several large green field pulp mills that, during the past years have been constructed in Brazil.
