CENTA authorized for In-House Testing

Wednesday, August 26, 2009

CENTA is the first company worldwide to which Germanischer Lloyd (GL) has conferred the responsibility for alternative product certification of type-approved couplings. In the future, CENTA will have the authority to carry out acceptance testing and final stamping of those couplings that have previously been classified as approved types. These tests must be performed in accordance with the “Alternative Product Certification,” a modular certification system developed by Germanischer Lloyd (GL). The approval becomes valid by their joint signatures on the appropriate product certificate.

CENTA is one of the leading manufacturers of flexible drive components worldwide and has been supplying couplings for marine applications for more than 20 years. In 1990, the company’s quality management system was first approved by DIN ISO 9001. All subsequent audits were passed successfully, and recently the classification society Det Norske Veritas (DNV) attested that the coupling manufacturer supports a higher-than-average quality management system.

Several international classification societies, such as the Det Norske Veritas (DNV), Nippon Kaiji Kyokai (NKK), and the Maritime Register of Shipping (MRS), have granted CENTA the authority to use their approval stamp on its series couplings. CENTA has a stock of approximately 65 approved types. In 2007, roughly 2,000 certifications by several classification societies were carried out on CENTA’s premises. In the future, CENTA will be the first manufacturer worldwide to be granted approval by Germanischer Lloyd (GL) to perform acceptance tests on its own flexible couplings up to 100 Nm.
