Quality Control

At Superior Tube, we take quality seriously. Therefore, we work from a Quality Management System Manual, which outlines all the procedures required to ensure that we deliver the best quality to our customers.

The Quality Management System Manual enables us to maintain consistency, and be in complete control of both product quality and document integrity. It details how control is established and maintained through formal written procedures, competent personnel, process controls, and inspection and testing. Our quality system covers all aspects of our business including raw material sourcing and vendor management, product engineering, manufacturing, product certification and delivery, and continuous improvement.

The Superior Tube quality system has been drawn up to meet all relevant regulatory standards including US Regulatory Agency requirements and specifications, ASME Pressure Vessel Code NCA 3800, MILI45208, 10CFR50  Appendix B, ASME NQA1, ANSI/NCSL-Z-540, ISO-10012, and ISO9001:2008 (Excluding Clause 7.3 Design and Development) as they relate to the manufacturing, inspection, testing and servicing of small diameter tubing.  

The processes defined in our Quality Management System Manual apply to everything we manufacture, ensuring full traceability. Superior Tube strives to meet the quality requirements of our customers, and meet the standards of the industries we operate in.
