NASH is working towards becoming an IECEx Certified Service Facility for the repair of mechanical seals and associated equipment.
The certification is based on the requirements of IEC 60079-19 and we plan to be fully certified by Q3 of 2016.
IEC 60079-19 is an internationally recognised scheme for the repair of equipment operating in potentially explosive atmospheres.
‘NASH has been ISO 9001 certified since 1995 and our quality system has complied with Annex IV of Council Directive 94/9/EC since 2004. As such, the processes and procedures we apply to all aspects of our business are now well-developed to consistently deliver the high levels of quality for which we are increasingly renowned. However, IEC 60079-19 certification will provide customers who ask us to repair any brand and type of mechanical seal operated in potentially explosive atmospheres with the additional peace of mind that comes from knowing that each and every seal is repaired and certified to the original standard(s) that applied when it was manufactured’ says Barry Hoyle, Managing Director.
