Quality Control

The quality mission of Blue Diamond Industries (BDI) is to establish a culture of producing conduit, CIC (cable in conduit), and pressure polyethylene piping products to meet or exceed the required specifications without exception. This is accomplished by controlling both raw materials and the manufacturing process, by testing, and by conducting visual inspections. Accountability is documented and will be traceable through recording dates, shifts, and production runs. The goal is to continually improve quality and prevent shipment of any product not meeting required specifications.

Blue Diamond maintains a full laboratory for testing of raw materials in accordance with ASTM D3350, in order to confirm the quality of our incoming raw materials as well as provide historical data. Furthermore, BDI does post production testing to insure compliance with the specifications, including ASTM F2160, D3485, D3035, NEMA TC7, UL 651A and customer specific requirements. Post production testing includes dimensional, cold temperature impact, stiffness, compression and recovery.

Rick Thomas, Principle Scientist at TRI Environmental Inc., says "I've visited Blue Diamond several times, reviewed their procedures and know their commitment to quality and testing is well above the norm.  Blue Diamond looks to be truly committed to meet and exceed industry standards."  

BDI also commits to servicing customers by delivering the correct product and quantity ordered on time. We are an agile company and strive to help our customers and suppliers when emergencies arise. We monitor our record by executing customer surveys on a regular basis.

Finally, Blue Diamond avails itself as a technical resource to our customers. As members of ASTM, PPI (Plastics Pipe Institute), IGSHPA (International Ground Source Heat Pump Association), and PCCA (Power and Communication Contractors Association), BDI is on the leading edge of industry research and technical knowledge. Customers come to BDI for technical information regarding HDPE pipe used in the various industrial applications.

Blue Diamond received ISO 9001:2015 certification in September 2017. Visit our ISO page to learn more about this ongoing process.
