The production of a quality-controlled pipe system demands supervision, regulation, and control in all steps of the process. All results and processes have to be documented.
- testing and acceptance of incoming goods
- process control at all stages
- in-process inspection and testing
- final inspection and testing
Relevant regulations and standards for the quality control of potable water pipe systems are established by:
These standards and guidelines detail the minimum requirements for internal control. Conformance to these standards is verified by independent institutions in the form of unannounced factory audits, random product sampling, and laboratory testing. Many years of experience in the extrusion and injection molding industries have made Aquatherm the market leader and pioneer in manufacturing polypropylene piping systems. This experience is reflected by demanding quality control standards and carefully established procedures, which are meticulously documented and proven by the consistent and superior quality of Aquatherm’s products.
Trained, qualified employees and a modern, well-equipped laboratory ensure that all tests are carried out and regulations are complied with in accordance to Aquatherm’s quality control policy.
All internal quality controls are documented and recorded in accordance with the quality control policy.
To ensure consistent performance, Aquatherm produces all of the Fusiolen® PP-R material used in the production of its piping systems, accepting only the highest quality of raw polypropylene. By manufacturing its own resin for the extrusion process, Aquatherm minimizes the possibility of material failure.
All metal inserts used in Aquatherm’s transition fittings are machined in the Aquatherm Metal facility, where each piece is designed and engineered to meet the exacting quality standards that Aquatherm demands.
