QUALITY INSPECTION PROCEDURES

As a certified ISO: 9001:2015 company, quality is the foundation of our gas fittings program. We inspect fittings based on the safety, quality, and reliability standards of our gas utility customers.

Our experienced inspection team ensures that all products meet customer specifications. We also ensure that the products meet the ANSI/ASQ Z 1.4 standards for both raw and coated materials.

Agile quality objectives have been rigorously evaluated through the lens of the PPQP process of multiple gas utility customers. The Agile inspection team provides a variety of quality inspection types and procedures, from 100% gage assessments to lot sampling inspections.

Our inspectors verify fittings are free from defects and coated products are smooth, continuous, and uniform. Internal threads are inspected and must be able to pass gage testing. Our quality management system (QMS) includes a three-step quality control and inspection standard operating procedure for every lot of material to ensure the highest level of coating.

ADVANTAGES OF AGILE'S POWDER COATED GAS FITTINGS

DURABILITY

Powder coated surfaces are harder, stronger, and more durable than other finishing products. When the powder melts and cures, it reforms as a solid, smooth surface, which can be applied in a variety of finish and thickness options. Powder coating offers superior protection and is more resistant to chipping, scratching, fading, solvents, environmental degradation, corrosion, and impact damage.

QUALITY

Our patented zinc and powder coating application technique and our rigorous PPQP inspection processes ensure the highest level of quality. Our ISO: 9001 certified product team has extensive powder coating and QC/QA inspection knowledge, delivering 100% defect free fittings year after year.

LONGEVITY

Powder coated surfaces can provide a protective finish for decades. Unlike paint products, the powder coating application and drying process results in a finish with no drips, runs, or uneven coverage. The corrosion and damage resistant finish keeps parts useful for many years without touch ups or special maintenance required.

ECO-FRIENDLY

Unlike conventional paint and other finishing products, powder is free of toxic chemicals, solvents, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). The powder coating process releases no harmful chemicals into the air and produces little waste. Unused powder can be collected, recycled, and reused.
