Timken recently announced that its Drives chain facility in Fulton, Illinois, has completed its ISO recertification audit and achieved American Petroleum Institute (API) Q1 recertification.

The facility successfully completed the certification audit to the ISO 9001:2015 quality management systems standard, ensuring all its chain processes and practices meet the exacting standards of the two governing organizations.

This month, the API also recertified that the quality management system of the Timken facility was in conformance with API Specification Q1 for the design and manufacture of chains and auger products.

The facility has been certified to ISO 9001 since 1996 and also registered to API Q1 and licensed to use the API monogram since 2002.

"In order to meet the API quality system requirements and verifications and use the API monogram label, we must endure API product testing and meet or exceed product performance requirements for the critical applications in the oil and gas industry," said Scott Meurs, senior quality engineer for Drives chain business at Timken. "We apply these same thorough verifications and testing to all of our roller chains in order to make sure that we achieve industry expectations."
