Baseplates are to be machined on a machine large enough to machine all the mounting pads on the upper
surface of the baseplate and ends without having to move the baseplate on the machine. It is
preferred that baseplates are machined when mounted horizontally.

5.2

Care must be taken to ensure that the baseplate remains in its natural relaxed state when being set up for
machining and that it is not distorted by clamping. This is necessary to prevent the machined pads from
becoming distorted when released from the machine.

5.3

Holes in lifting pad-eyes must be drilled NOT flame cut.

6.0

Painting

6.1

Fabrications are to be painted as per the procedure and colour referenced in the Sulzer Inspection & Test
Plan. Particular attention to be paid to ensure that all coat thicknesses meet the specified requirements.

6.2

Prior to blasting all tapped holes are to be protected with fasteners to prevent shot ingress into holes. All
machined surfaces and flanges are to be protected with thick tape to ensure that they are not blasted.
Pipes are to be cleaned of shot after blasting.

6.3

Paint certificate to be provided in accordance with the paint procedure.

6.4

The following painting contractors are not to be used without the written consent of Sulzer Pumps UK Ltd:Forward Protective Coatings
Merseyside Coatings or their successors

6.5

If painting is sub-contracted the complete Sulzer Inspection & Test Plan must be passed to the painting
sub-contractor rather than just an extract.

6.6

Mounting pads which are not shown as machined on the baseplate drawing are to be painted.

6.7

Where painting is to be in accordance with Norsok or similarly qualified procedure, then sharp edges,
fillets, corners and welds shall be rounded or smoothened by grinding to P3 as defined in ISO 8501-3

(minimum radius 2mm), and hard surface layers resulting from flame cutting etc. shall be removed by
grinding.
6.8

If the baseplate is provided with plates for the mounting of lifting bollards the painting is to be as per the
sketch below.

7.0

Inspection

7.1

This section defines minimum inspection requirements. Note more onerous requirements may be required
by the contract specific Inspection & Test Plan.

Dimensional Inspection - Baseplates


Supplier is required to provide a marked up drawing for each baseplate showing the actual dimensions
obtained (both fabricated and machined) after machining. This to be undertaken using the machine used
for the machining unless a suitably large CMM is available. Any dimension found outside of drawing
tolerances must be the subject of a Sulzer approved concession request prior to delivery of the baseplate.
The baseplate is to be measured without any clamps or other such loading that will distort the fabrication
from its natural position.
This drawing is to be submitted to Sulzer for review prior to requesting release.

7.5

Dimensional Inspection All Other Fabrications


Supplier is required to provide a marked up drawing for each fabrication showing the actual dimensions
obtained after machining. Any dimension found outside of drawing tolerances must be the subject of a
Sulzer approved concession request prior to delivery of the fabrication. The marked up drawing is to
included in the certification data book

7.6

Surface Preparation & Painting Inspection


Unless otherwise specified on the ITP the Fabrication is to be inspected when primed to ensure that
surface preparation is as per the specified paint procedure and that there are no welding defects such as
pin holes, spatter, sharp edges, undercuts etc.
On completion of painting the fabrication to be inspected for painting defects and compliance with
specification with regard to dry film thickness.

7.7

Sulzer / Client Witness


Materials/components may be subject to inspection by Sulzer and/or their clients representatives. Such
