Pilgrim International continues both to develop the product and the manufacturing process.  This development has further cemented the company's worldwide reputation for outstanding quality & performance,

Included in our QA system a manufacturing and inspection plan is prepared for each component required to be made. The planning controls the issuing of material purchased specifically for the component and all the stages of manufacturing, inspection and testing. Each stage of the planning is signed off when completed.  Examples of the QA System can be provided.

Before we despatch our product all new designs go through a fully functional test.  For example when we test the Radial Fit Bolt we use a special test block that simulates the actual coupling, the sleeves are fully expanded and then the bolts fully tensioned. The oil injection removal procedure is also tested, as is the alternative method of separation using the bolt removal equipment. The hydraulic components are all fully pressure tested and certified. Additional non-destructive testing (NDT) can be undertaken to meet the individual requirements of customers should they be required.

Prior to despatch all products are etched, suitably packed and sprayed with an anti-corrosive fluid for transportation purposes
