The purpose of Pittsburgh Tank's Quality Control programs are to insure that all products manufactured and sold by Pittsburgh Tank Corporation are constructed with the highest possible quality.

Management fully supports all of the Quality Control programs. Our dedicated Quality Control Manager reports directly to the president of Pittsburgh Tank . The Quality Control Manager has the responsibility of identifying quality control problems, and the authority to initiate, recommend, and provide solutions. Any problems are brought directly to management's attention.

Pittsburgh Tank Corporation is ASME certified "U".   All welders employed by our company are ASME certified Section IX, and AWS.

Pittsburgh Tank Corporation quality control personnel hold AWS QC-1 inspection certificates. All other destructive and non-destructive testing is performed on a contract basis.

All jobs are subject to the following Quality Control Procedures:

1. Administration Review: The administration review is broken down into specific review, purchase order review, exceptions and revisions, and change order control.
2. Engineering Quality Control: Engineering starts with a design review meeting. Engineering/drawing release, drawing control, pre-submittal review, revision/correction, and approval evaluation all take place before the drawings are released to the shop, purchasing, and scheduling.
3. Manufacturing Quality Control: Manufacturing personnel discuss the implementation of material recieval and tagging. In-process inspection, assembly inspection, testing requirements, coating requirements, and final inspection requirements all ensure that the product is constructed in accordance with our high standards of quality.
4. Shipping Control: Our transportation evaluation/selection and scheduling, tracking and delivery validation, documentation and records ensure that Pittsburgh Tank Corporation maintains its unheard-of 96% ship on-time rate.

Pittsburgh Tank Corporation's Quality Control Program for Un-fired Pressure Vessels has been established to match or exceed all American Society of Engineers (ASME) Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code, Section VIII, Division 1, National Board Inspection Code and Jurisdictional requirements, including material, design, fabrication, examination and inspection.

The ASME manual establishes an orderly and effective Quality Control System covering in-shop manufacturing, repair, and alteration of pressure vessels. Close adherence to the procedures specified in our Quality Control Manual will assure the maintenance of high quality standards.

Both our ASME code, and Non-Code Quality Control Manuals are available to customers upon request.
