Trelleborg’s bend restrictors receive API 17l1 certificate
Trelleborg’s offshore operation in the UK has been certified for the manufacture of bend restrictors under the American Petroleum Institute’s specification for flexible pipe ancillary equipment (API 17L1 Ed. 1 2013).
The certificate was completed by global engineering, technical and business services organization, Lloyds Register EMEA, acting as an independent verification agent. It was evaluated alongside Trelleborg’s product range drawings including dimension tolerances, manufacturing processes and procedures for polymer components. In addition, a manufacturing audit and site visit to the company’s metal work supplier were undertaken.
