During the polishing process all manufacturers markings are removed including: –
- Grade of Material: i.e. T304L or T316L?
- Treatment: Annealed or heat treated (BD), or Un-annealed/not heat treated (CD)
- Cast/Heat Number: Linking the material directly with material test certificate according to EN10204 3.1.
Material will always have full identification labels attached to each bundle. However, once on site or during fabrication the bundles may get broken down, which presents a risk of losing identification and traceability.
Also, for critical applications where traceability is essential, Neumo UK can now offer a solution which is to mark/stencil to each tube after polishing (pic 1) to ensure traceability is maintained as much as possible.
