Organizations that produce and sell petroleum products need to be certified according to the American Petroleum Institute’s (API) standards. The organization must have a quality management system in order to achieve this certification. The system must include quality manuals that describe the organization’s policies and procedures for operating its oil production process along with documentation showing that they have met all the requirements of the API specification.
The American Petroleum Institute is a non-profit, international organization that certifies petroleum quality management and seeks to promote safety, control risks, and protect the environment within the petroleum industry. Some technical standards released by API are following
- API 610 is a specification for centrifugal pumps.
- API 675 is a specification for controlled volume positive displacement pumps.
- API 677 is standard for gear units.
- API 682 is a specification for mechanical seals.
API’s global network enables customers to find the best solution for their needs by providing them with access to a wide-range of metrology products including gauges, ring gauges, custom gauges, plug and ring gauges, thread measuring systems, precision machining and grinding equipment, precision measuring instruments and more.
