    test with class

    Hello all users!

    As I wrote here a few days ago, I was familiarising myself with the newly received valve test report regarding 5 pcs of angle stop valves.

    While getting acquainted with it, I stumbled on something very strange.

    The report mentions count / number - there were 5 pcs of the valves - normal.

    It also mentions delivery, after which test with class is mentioned - It is strange and I don't know what it has to do with the report.

    Could you help me?

    Maybe the author means that the classifier witnessed / took part in the tests or the tests were performed in front of the classifier.

    If possible, post a snapshot (picture) of the report. You can blot out sensitive bits if necessary.

    Re: test with class

    First of all, I would like to apologise for not having even looked up your replies over the weekend. It is good to take a break from getting up so early in the morning and have a lie-in.

    I cannot insert a photo, which is why I will describe to you step by step what the document looks like.

    The document has a tabular form. The first column is entitled "Order and customer details", but I don't think It is going to be of any interest to you. The 2nd column is entitled "Valve type and size details - they include the following:
    type, brand, actuator (which does not exist), size, class. Next, the 3rd column is entitled "Valve materials"#, followed by the last column (in the 1st row) entitled "Test results". The last column contains the following information:

    test procedure, body, backseat, low pressure side 1 and 2, high pressure side 1 and 2.

    We are finally reaching the 5th column (the 1st column in the 2nd row) entitled "Delivery and pricing details" that contains the following: delivery - test with class and count - 5 (that is 5 pcs of valves).

    I think all the information will do.

    #The 3rd column "Valve materials" contains the following information:
    body, stem, seat, gasket, packing.

    Are "test with class" and "count" two separate heading titles? If so, what info is provided for them?

    Yes, they are. They are accompanied by no other information. That is all I have.

    I've been monitoring this thread for the (now) four days it has been up to see if you accidently provide the one bit of key information I have asked for many times but you never provide. If you don't know/can't guess what that is, then I can wait while you think about it- perhaps this project is not time-sensitive. I don't mind you wasting your own time waiting for a useful response, but it's frustrating to see moderators and busy users try to help you in your game of Blind Men and the Elephant. I think I can help you but I'm tired of begging you to help yourself.

    Re: test with class

    I am sorry to disappoint you but I don't know what you might mean by key information. I have provided all the information I have. If you mean the source, it is unavailable. It is an A4 piece of paper in PDF, so I don't know what else I am supposed to add. I am not good at guessing what someone might have in their mind. I do appreciate other forum users' time but after a 5-day working week, one wants to relax. Everybody needs to wind down and recharge their batteries.

    I find it hard to believe that you have no idea where these valves were manufactured or by which company based in what country such that you cannot guess the original language of this report.

    I'd bet a dollar against a donut that this has been translated at least once before it got into English, as are most of your posts, so our typical understanding of the usage(s) of the word class are useless.
    If you truly do not know, then you will have to contact someone closer to the original to obtain a copy of that original so that we can do our own translation and choose from among the many, many synonyms of the word class. If that is not possible, then I think we will never get to the bottom of this.

    On-line translators will provide only the single most common synonym, which is not always helpful in technical writing. Unless the writer understands English, they could not choose a better word than class to mean the same as their original word. You should know this by now.

    Here's what I want to see the next time:

    I just received a valve test report regarding 5 pcs of angle stop valves. The manufacturer is a German company, but possibly the report was generated in Polish. My English translation includes the phrase "test with class" which has me confused. The original report had "dfghjk" ​in that field. Can anyone help me find a more suitable word or phrase in English or help me understand what "test with class" means?

    Should I use your questioning formuła to the letter? I was about to tell you in this post that the valves come from our closest neighbour - Germany but you beat me to It.
