The inspection requirements specified
herein are classified as follows:
(a) First article inspection (see 4.3).
(b) Quality conformance inspection (see 4.4).
4.3 First article inspection. First article inspection shall be performed
at a laboratory satisfactory to NAVSEA on each class. Either horizontal or
vertical units may be submitted. The several first article tests on one pump
design may be conducted concurrently, if practicable. The test shall fully
establish that the product has the reliability and performance capability
specified herein. A first article test report shall be prepared in accordance
with the data ordering document included in the contract or order (see 6.2.2).
The following tests shall be performed:
(a) performance evaluation tests specified in 4.6.6 through 22.214.171.124
and the examination specified in 4.5. Performance evaluation
tests shall be conducted on one pump of each type, design and
size on each contract or order (see 4.6.6).
(b) Design evaluation tests as specified in 4.6.7 through 126.96.36.199.
Design evaluation tests shall be conducted on one pump of each
type, design and size (see 4.6.7).
4.3.1 First article inspection shall include all sizes of each type and
both horizontal and vertical units.
4.3.2 The contractor of a specific class pump shall submit design data
and calculations, as specified in 3.8 to the Design Review Activity for review
and approval as a prerequisite to the performance of the first article tests
specified herein. The design record, as specified in 3.9, shall be submitted
upon completion of the first article tests.
4.4 Quality conformance inspection. Each pump (and subcomponents of each
pump, if applicable) shall be examined as specified in 4.5 and tested as speci-
fied in 4.6.1 through 4.6.5. Quality conformance inspection shall be fully
documented by a prescribed test procedure and a written record of the perfor-
