How It's Done – Fittings Inspection

fittingsAlthough NewAge Industries produces molded fittings for our AdvantaPure product line, most fittings we offer are purchased from outside sources. But that doesn't mean we don't inspect the items thoroughly before they're sold to a customer or used in a hose assembly.

When a stock fitting order arrives, the items are checked visually and labels are inspected for accuracy. Inspectors must be familiar with the fitting product lines and able to tell what type of fitting it is simply by looking at it. They can't be influenced by a label and must check that separately. Parts are not transferred to stock status until the Quality team releases them from the inspection process. Following this, the fittings are moved to bins in the fittings storage area in our warehouse.

Custom fittings inspection is a bit more involved. Most of the custom fittings we order are for our AdvantaPure high purity product line. Various grades of stainless steel (304, 316) are used, some metals are polished while others aren't, and fittings can look alike except for seemingly small differences. For example, a 1/2" sanitary mini Tri-Clamp fitting looks the same on the outside, whether it's designed to attach to a 1/4", 3/8" or 1/2" I.D. hose.

Custom fittings are inspected visually and against a drawing for dimensional accuracy. Like stock fittings, they are released only after the Quality team completes the inspection process and deems them usable.

AdvantaPure warehouseAdvantaPure custom fittings are stored differently than stock fittings and are kept in a separate, low-particulate-level storage room within our warehouse.
