    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.

    Re: test with class

    I think "count" is pretty understandable, right?

    I also think the confusing word there is "with". I can only assume that is used in the sense of "and", such that "test with class" is asking you to specify:
    - test: possibly which tests the product has passed.
    - class: this could either be a reference to the class of test or class of product.

    Re: test with class

    I imagine that there are different classes of valve. The valve is tested in accordance with the class it is supposed to be. This is listing which class the valve was tested under.

    Re: test with class

    Some doubt crept into my mind as to the meaning of the word "class". Could it be that "class" might apply to classifier? The reason I assume it to mean "classifier" is that in another column of this document there is a mentions of "Class approval", followed by LR. LR stands for Lloyd's Register and is one of Classification Societies.
