In its quest to be recognised as the world’s premier medium to high pressure hose manufacturer, PIX has recently been awarded the Lloyd’s Register (LR) Type Approval. This is another ‘feather in the cap’ for PIX as it already has DNV, GL and MA approvals for its products, among several others.
The LR Type Approval is an independent third-party certification, which attests a product’s conformity with specific standards or specifications, and the verification of an appropriate production quality system. This approval is highly desirable for products used in marine and offshore applications, mining, drilling and industrial plant and processes.
Upon receipt of the certification, Operations Director for UK based PIX Hydraulics (Europe) Ltd, Karan Sethi said: “This is another testimony to the quality and performance one has come to expect from PIX. We are thrilled to receive this certification as it will give our customers added peace of mind when using our products in safety critical applications."
The range of PIX products that have achieved LR Type Approval include the Performer, Prokomp, Optimal, Thermal, Ultraflex, Impetus, Hi-Pulse and Armour branded hoses.
