PVC Quality Process
To ensure the quality of all PVC fittings that come through our plant, Quality Control is active in all aspects of production—from making sure that no defects are present in the raw materials to each fitting being properly labeled for shipment. In between, there is an exhaustive quality control process consisting of:
Visual inspections for any defects
Physically fit checking bells that pass visual inspection
Hydro-pressure tests to make sure our fittings can withstand whatever abuse the end user may throw at it in the field
Making sure dimensions and angles are precisely what the fitting requires
Making sure fittings that require a gel-coat or fiberglass procedure is carried out
And even giving the fittings a good ol’ polish!
If a fitting does not meet our standards for any reason, it is sent back through the entire process until it satisfies our expectations.
HDPE Quality Process
Our HDPE Quality Control consists of several unique processes to ensure our customers receive the highest quality possible:
The quality of each fitting begins with Incoming Inspection when our raw materials (pipe, components, etc.) arrive. Any piece not meeting our standards is sent back.
Every team member is tasked with inspecting and cleaning their fittings before they bring them to the Quality Department for final inspection.
Every fitting that leaves our facility is inspected more than once to our in-house specifications.
Every fitting has its own procedure that details the critical dimensions and inspection points necessary for acceptance of each product.
Our In-Process Inspector (whom is on the production floor several times per day) inspects wall thickness, manufactured angles, cosmetic issues, fusion, etc. throughout the production process.
Every accepted fitting has a quality record proving it was inspected and accepted. The same holds true for our non-conforming rejected products. It is documented and put in QC Hold until a disposition is made.
