At RMC, we take our commitment to quality control seriously. From the moment the materials arrive at our facility to the final packaging of our conduit products, we have a thorough testing process in place. Our goal is to deliver top-quality products that meet the highest standards of excellence.

A Three-Step Process to Guarantee Quality

To ensure that our conduit products meet the strictest quality standards, we follow a comprehensive three-step process:

Step 1: Rigorous Assessments

Procurement of raw materials, production, and final product delivery - every stage undergoes rigorous examination by our team of experts. We understand that all materials and processes play a crucial role in the overall performance of our conduit, that’s why we meticulously scrutinize the quality of our materials and manufacturing processes.

Step 2: Intensive Research and Development

Innovation is at the core of what we do. We strive to continuously improve the quality of our products and manufacturing efficiencies to provide quality products enabling us to pass the cost savings to you. Through intensive research and development, we stay ahead of the curve, ensuring that our customers have access to the latest advancements in the industry.

Step 3: Internal Audits

To maintain the highest level of quality control, we conduct regular internal audits. These official inspections allow us to identify areas for improvement and refine our quality control systems and best practices.

Testing for Excellence

As part of our commitment to quality control, we employ a range of tests to ensure that our conduit products meet the highest standards. Here are some of the key tests that form a part of our rigorous testing process:

Visual Test

A visual test is conducted to determine the absence or presence of defects such as poor coatings, hard scale, burrs, or fins. By meticulously examining our conduit products, we can spot any imperfection that may affect their performance.

Dimension Test

Measuring the outside and inside diameter, radius and other vital measurements is crucial to ensure that they meet the precise specifications required for your construction projects. Our attention to detail in the dimension test guarantees that our conduit will fit perfectly and function optimally.

Zinc Thickness Test

Zinc coating is essential for protecting conduit against corrosion. Our zinc thickness test evaluates the quality, thickness, and uniformity of the zinc coating on our conduit products. This test ensures that our conduit has the necessary level of protection to withstand harsh environments and maintain its integrity over time.

Bend Test

Conduit often needs to be bent during installation to fit specific configurations. Our bend test ensures that our conduit is up to the task. By using a combination of standard manual benders and electric and hydraulic benders, we carefully assess the durability and bendability of our conduit. The result is a smooth bend with minimal ovality and no kinks or splits in the steel that guarantees hassle-free installation. Our special radius elbows easily

pass our test mandrel requirements.

When it comes to quality control, RMC is your trusted partner in electrical conduit and fittings. Our three-step process, combined with a range of comprehensive tests, ensures that our conduit products meet the highest standards of excellence.
