Specifying products backed by proven high-quality manufacturingstandards is the only reliable way of getting the performance you paid for.

Most manufacturers are satisfied to meet basicindustry best practices and standards for product compliance. Unfortunately,this statement can even be true with niche products where there is animperative to perform and where a customer spends additional cost for thatlevel of performance.

Forward-thinking manufacturers strive to differentiatethemselves by producing products that exceedbasic standards. Such products frequently provide added value at competitivecosts. Identifying and hard-specifying manufacturers that go above-and-beyondminimum expectations is the only way for owners and end-users to be assured ofthe product performance they paid for.

In today’s competitive, quickly changing, andsometimes litigious marketplaces, there is a growing acceptance of the factthat “not all products are created equal”, therefore specifiable products shouldoffer objectively verified product performance along with proven consistentquality in the manufacturing processes.

In rapidly growing numbers, owners and end-users,as well as specifying-consulting engineers, have begun to reject products that simplymeet standards shared by all other manufacturers, and accept products that haveproven themselves to offer performance attributes exceeding basic compliancesor the status quo.

HOWNOT ALL PRODUCTS ARE CREATED EQUAL

As a case in point, let’s look at the example ofPVC-coated galvanized rigid conduit and standards that govern the industry.

UL 6

All major brands ofPVC-coated conduit meet the exact same requirements of UL 6.

 

“These requirements coverelectrical rigid metal conduit-steel (ERMC-S), elbows, couplings, and nipplesfor use as a metal raceway for installation of wires and cables in accordancewith CSA C22.1, Canadian Electrical Code, Part 1, NOM-001-SEDE, Standard forElectrical Installations, and NFPA 70, National Electric Code (see ReferenceItem No. 1 Annex a). ERMC-S is provided with a zinc, zinc-based, nonmetallic,or other alternate corrosion-resistant exterior coating and an organic or zincinterior coating. It is the user’s responsibility to determine the appropriateproduct for their application.


The last statement of the standard description isan important message of the user’s responsibility to determine the best productuse for the application. The UL listing is important to the industry standardand the safety performance of the product, but by its own acknowledgement, notto the performance in the application of the product. UL Listed products alsoimply that those products, through a regulated service, are allowed to carrythe UL label. The regulated service is continually followed up by a thirdparty, in this case UL, for ongoing compliance in order to maintain thelisting.


NEMARN1

All major brands of PVC-coated conduit meet theexact same requirements of NEMA RN1, an industry best practice created bymembers of the National Electrical Manufacture’s Association (NEMA) as aguideline for applying plastic coatings to galvanized rigid steel conduit.

ASTMANSI C80.1

All major brands of PVC-coated conduit meet theexact same requirements ASTM ANSI C80.1 that establishes the industry standardsfor electrical rigid steel conduit for use as a raceway for the wires or cablesof an electrical system. Raceway systems (conduit, fittings, and enclosures)are relied upon to provide mechanical protection for circuit conductors andcarry potentially dangerous fault currents.

ETLPVC-001

Only some major brands of PVC-coated conduit areverified to carry an ETL-PVC-001 label.

This gets to the heart of why not all products arecreated equal.

For many years, end-users and owners found itadequate to accept products based on the fact that they all shared the samestandards.

No longer.

In the instance of PVC-coated galvanized rigidconduit, ETL-PVC-001 has become critical to proper product specificationbecause not all manufacturers have been able to meet the quality standardsnecessary for passing independently confirmed product testing.

Unlike other standards that are traditionally safety-specific,ETL PVC-001 Verified is an internationally recognized listing based onperformance evaluations and on predicting service life.
It is on the basis of independent, objective? productcomparisons by Intertek ETL that only some brands of PVC-coated conduit havebeen proven to provide ten or more times the protective service life ofcompared to brands that are not authorized to carry the ETL PVC-001 label.
ETL PVC-001 validates the coating performance ofPVC-coated galvanized rigid conduit based on? ASTM D870 and ASTM D1151/ASTMD2247. These accepted ASTM tests methods, along with the criteria set withinETL PVC-001 create the standard for predicting product service life. Thesetests are not intended to replicate a specific environment. Rather, they aredesigned to predict the service life of a coating under the two most commonconditions that affect adhesive bonds: heat and humidity. ?
When a customer is expecting a product to performand spends a premium they should never settle for a “one and done” test. Unlikesome standards that only require a product to pass required testing once, ETLPVC-001 verification is based on a quarterly requirement to repeatedly andsuccessfully pass the stringent performance tests demanded for verification. ?
Furthermore, ETL verification is an “open standard”.Testing is open to any manufacturer who believes that the quality of itsprotective coating can consistently meet ETL verification requirements. Thispoints to the vital importance of owners, end-users and specifiersunderstanding the scope and purpose of all standards related to products withimperative. The absence of a listing, certification or verification demands ananswer to the question: “why has this standard not been met?”
That is “how” not all products are created equal.

Let’s now explore “why.”


WHYNOT ALL PRODUCTS ARE CREATED EQUAL

The decision to produce a product that exceeds basic standard criteria is inpart a conscious, philosophical commitment by a manufacturer it also requires alevel of technical competence necessary to achieve a high level of quality andconsistency in the production process.

To take the example of PVC-coated conduit one-step more:some manufacturers of this product are ISO 9001: 2008 certified. Others arenot. Interestingly, but not surprisingly, the manufacturers who are ISOcertified are also ETL-verified. Those who are not ISO certified have not beenverified by ETL.

ISO (International Organization forStandardization) is the world’s largest developer of voluntary InternationalStandards. ISO 9001:2008 focuses on meeting customer expectations anddelivering customer satisfaction by ensuring an organization delivers aconsistent level of quality to its customers by requiring well developedprocesses and procedures as well as implementing continual improvement. 

ISO 9001 is a recognized quality management system(QMS) and is the only ISO standard that requires certification.  ISO Certification is a seal of approval froma 3rd party body that a company runs to one of the internationally recognizedISO management systems. The certification can be used to tender for business asa proof of a company’s credibility, but also to install confidence in thepotential client that they will keep their promises. Additional benefits tocustomers of ISO 9001 certified organizations are improved quality and service,on time delivery, and confidence that things will be right the first time –every time.

To self-initiate a level of regulated discipline inboth product performance and manufacturing quality speaks to a company’spersonal level of commitment to build a product that will perform at the levelrequired, every time. All of this speaks to a business model that is based on numerousquality management principles including a strong customer focus, managementleadership, a disciplined process approach and continual improvement with theend goal of consistent quality.

CONCLUSION:“LOOK FOR THE PROVEN PERFORMANCE.”

To review and to applythe lessons of PVC-coated conduit to any and all other specified products:

All major PVC-coatedconduit brands comply with exactly the same standards --- except that some areverified to meet the requirements of ETL PVC-001 Verification of productperformance and predictability of service life in addition to base standards. ?

Not all majormanufacturers of PVC-coated conduit are ISO 9001: 2008 certified.Currently those that are, have also been able to achieve ETL-verificationthrough superior quality made possible by consistency in the manufacturingprocess.

Therefore, if reliability of product service lifeis important to engineering design, avoidance of costly or catastrophic productor system failure, it should be assumed in the specification process that onlyPVC-coated galvanized conduit, produced by a ISO-certified manufacturingenvironment and carrying the ETL verification label have met --- or will exceed--- the standards established by all relevant ASTM tests, including thosepredicting product service life.

Exactly the same logic canand should be applied to the specification of all products for any application.Specifying products backed by
proven high-qualitymanufacturing standards, is the only reliable way
of gettingthe performance you paid for, every time.

Is it ok to install a non-coated box along with my PVC coated conduit installation?

性爱乱伦

Question: Chris, is it ok to install a non-coated box along with my PVC coated conduit installation?
Answer: Non-coated boxes should never be used, only coated boxes will provide the protection necessary to prevent corrosion and maintain the necessary ratings. Also, non-coated products of any type should never be used with coated products. The product should be installed as a system and non-coated products compromise the integrity of the installation.

Legendary basketball coach, Bob Knight, will be this year’s special guest at Robroy Industries’ gourmet dessert reception, May 12, 2016 National Association of Electrical Distributors (NAED) Annual Meeting

Bob Knight
At this year’s event, Robroy Industries is proud to welcome, as our special guest, a man who became an American icon by demanding and achieving excellence—-Bob Knight.
Bob Knight is a legendary coach because he has consistently developed winners on the basketball court. He has accomplished this feat by insisting on the mastery of fundamentals, on unselfish team play, on attention to detail, on a hard work ethic, and on the principle of never making excuses. Of even greater importance, Coach Knight has devoted his remarkable career to training young athletes not only in the skills of the game but also in the skills of succeeding at life.
The world is full of “ordinary heroes” achieving “extraordinary” results because they are committed to performing their jobs in the best possible way.
COACH BOB KNIGHT
In college basketball, the names Robert Montgomery and “Bob” Knight are synonymous with greatness and winning.
A Lifetime Of Extraordinary Excellence:
Bob Knight is among the youngest head coaches to have won 200, 300, 400, 500, 600, 700, and 800 career games. He was the first men’s college basketball coach to have reached 900 wins and until recently was the only member of this exclusive club. When he was 62-years old, he became the youngest of four coaches to reach the milestone of 800 victories. Coach Knight completed his coaching career at Texas Tech on February 2, 2008, with a 67-60 win over Oklahoma State University. He announced his retirement soon after.
During his six seasons at Army, his 29 years at Indiana University and his six and a half seasons at the helm of the Texas Tech Red Raider program, he has experienced nothing short of extraordinary excellence. Most telling, there is the bond that exists between Coach Knight and those who have played for him.
Bob Knight is his own man, one who represents high principles, expectations and demands for his players, his coaching staff and, most of all, himself. Because of his time spent coaching at Army and his disciplinarian nature, Knight earned the nickname “The General.” Coach Knight was well known for the extreme preparation he put into each game and practice. He was often quoted as saying, “Most people have the will to win, and few have the will to prepare to win.”
But he is foremost an educator. His ability to teach young men the game of basketball and the game of life is one of his most noted characteristics.
Coach Knight has proven over and over again that he is the finest basketball coach in America. No other coach can cite NCAA and NIT championships plus Olympic and Pan American gold medals among his achievements. There are only two coaches in the history of collegiate basketball who have won more than the three national championships Knight has won during his career. His coaching achievements were honored in May of 1991 when he was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. In 2011 Knight was voted into the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame.
In addition to his accomplishments on the court, Bob Knight is the author of two books. In 2003, he released his autobiography Knight: My Story, and in 2013 he released his second book, The Power of Negative Thinking: An Unconventional Approach To Achieving Positive Results, in which he takes his coaching technique of understanding the downside, preparing for it, and applying it to business strategy.
Committed to mentoring, Coach Knight’s coaching techniques and teaching skills place him in great demand as a speaker around the country. High school coaches flock to his clinics and his summer camp for youngsters is always filled to capacity. He has long been active in the National Association of Basketball Coaches, serving in various capacities. He served one term as a trustee of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame and was named an honorary member of Beta Gamma Sigma, the national business honor society. He has also lent his name to help support numerous charitable and youth organizations. In 2008, Bob Knight joined ESPN as a men’s college basketball studio analyst during Championship Week and for coverage of the NCAA Tournament. He continued covering college basketball for ESPN throughout the 2014-15 season.
Bob Knight’s legacy stretches far beyond the realm of his numerous achievements and highly recognized status on the hard court. In August 2003, he was honored as the first inductee in The Vince Lombardi Titletown Legends. The honor pays tribute to individuals who possess the characteristics instilled by Vince Lombardi in all of his players: Dedication, Teamwork, Respect, Love, Family and Discipline.
A native of Orrville, Ohio, Knight is a graduate of Ohio State, where he was a member of the Buckeye basketball team. After graduating with a degree in History and Government, Knight was an assistant coach at Cuyahoga Falls (Ohio) High School one year before entering the U.S. Army where he was assigned to assist Coach Tates Locke at West Point. When Locke became head coach at Miami (Ohio) University in 1965, Knight, then only 24, was named to succeed him–becoming the youngest Varsity Coach in major collegiate history.
The rest, as they say, is history. Extraordinary history. A history of extraordinary, un-compromised success.

Knowledge-based specification of products combined with a solid maintenance plan reduces downtime at infant formula manufacturing plant

In the food processing and packaging industry there are strict regulations to ensure food product safety including the critical need for proper wash-down and cleaning of equipment.
Due to direct exposure to water and chemicals used during wash-downs, equipment can corrode quickly. If corrosion is found in or near food, inspectors can delay production or shut down a plant, causing significant loss of time and money. In addition, undetected or untreated corrosion can cause early failure of equipment and supporting systems, thereby causing unacceptable cost increases.
In order to prevent unexpected system failures and instances of production downtime, corrosion must be prevented. Again, reliable protection against corrosion prolongs product life of equipment and machinery components, ensuring continued production and avoiding the high cost of replacement and repair. Of paramount importance, preventing corrosion improves overall food safety.
Food Manufacturing Corrosion
Photo Caption 1: Corrosion discovered on lighting fixture by an electrical engineer in a food manufacturing plant shortly after graduation from Corrosion College. Immediate replacement of the fixture eliminated any potential danger of corrosion flakes falling into the food being processed directly below.
Richard McGrath is a retired electrical inspector and formerly oversaw electrical maintenance for 11 years at a large infant formula facility.  According to Mr. McGrath:
“One of my tasks was to conduct ‘preventative maintenance’ on all the machinery and systems pertinent to the production line. While performing this work, I witnessed the fact that the use of PVC coated conduit and fittings fared much better than uncoated or exposed ridged conduit. As a matter of regulations for food safety, all conduits in the designated areas are required to be corrosion resistant. We found that in areas not exposed to the product or cleaning agents, and not required to meet federal standards, it would be prudent to use PVC protected materials at the time of installation, in case that area was to be utilized at a later date due to expansion of production lines or processing systems, even if of a temporary nature.”
McGrath’s experience was not only helpful for ensuring safe and efficient operation of facilities and machinery, but also helped to solve longstanding problems that could have otherwise caused years of damage without the knowledge of facility operators. He explains:
 “As an Electrical Inspector, I have found several instances of evidence of corrosion in underground installations. This intrigued me as to why some areas were subjected to this deleterious effect and others were not.? In particular, at a renovation of a convenience store with fueling islands, it was revealed that the conventional conduit that runs to the pumps had suffered greatly from corrosion. Enough damage had occurred that a definite hazardous condition existed. It was determined that some seven years earlier a leaking underground fuel tank had contaminated the surrounding area. It was replaced and the site was deemed clean. When using conduit for underground burial, you always run the risk of corrosion due to the fact that the conduit is in two different environments (underground and above ground), which also means it is in two different electrolytes. This causes corrosion to occur naturally, but the fact that there were additional chemicals introduced into the environment made it that much worse.”

Underground Conduit Corrosion
Photo Caption 2: Rigid metal conduit placed underground at a renovation of a convenience store with fueling islands, it was revealed that the conventional conduit that runs to the pumps had suffered greatly from corrosion. To learn more about corrosion and how to eliminate the cost associated with replacement of product due to failure— attend Corrosion College.
Mr. McGrath notes that professionals can now benefit from unique educational opportunities designed to provide professionals with knowledge-based tools necessary to overcome corrosion challenges. He states:
“I was fortunate to attend and graduate the CORROSION COLLEGE course. The course focused on learning the causes of corrosion via real-life case studies and provided proven methods for preventing corrosion including proper installation of PVC-Coated conduit.”
 Bad conduit installation
Photo Caption: This PVC Coated Conduit was installed with an uncoated GUA fitting, which could compromise the performance of the installation.  When installing PVC Coated Conduit it is important to create a sealed system. Knowledge of PVC-Coated Conduit regulations and proper installation is essential for success of a project. Graduation from Corrosion College ensures your project will succeed in a corrosive environment.
CORROSION COLLEGE is two-day short course that provides solutions for the prevention of industrial corrosion through classroom and hands-on experience. Additionally, the course grants 15 Professional Development Hours participants upon successful completion. The course is accredited through national-recognized institutes of learning such as Purdue University, Kilgore College, the American Institute of Architects, and PDH Seminars.
“Without knowledge, nothing happens,” he states: “Anyone who truly wants to win against corrosion needs to begin with that fact.”
Mr. McGrath is of the opinion that the proper selection of anti-corrosion products is the logical extension of knowledge. By way of example he cites the following based on his own on-the-job experiences.
“For the eleven years that I worked as the maintenance electrician at an infant formula facility, we used PVC-coated galvanized rigid conduit as a preferred product in fighting corrosion. Interestingly, though, it wasn’t until several years later I expanded my knowledge of corrosion that I became aware of the fact that not all PVC-coated rigid conduits are created equally. While it is important that UL6 listings are needed for safety, it is also great to know that the ETL PVC-001 standard is available to evaluate product performance.
PVC-coated rigid conduit that has passed ETL performance evaluations is proven to have a product service life of ten or more times longer than brands that don’t. Consequently, once I knew that fact I began specifying brands which are ETL-Verified. Not only did I specify them, but I refused to let anyone break those specs. I wanted the protection I had paid for!”
EXPERIENCE OF FAILED PRODUCT AS WELL
 Mr. McGrath believes that knowing how to fight corrosion leads to the ability to specify proper products, but that using such products correctly necessitates a carefully planned maintenance program. He explains:
“We specified ETL PVC-001 Verified rigid conduit because it has a proven ability to withstand the rigors of daily wash-downs and helped enable us to keep our equipment running without the need for regular replacement or the risk of premature product failure. Dependability of this degree enables the third step in successfully dealing with corrosion, and that is the integration of the best available products with a solid, well-defined maintenance program. In that context, documented reliability will support all key objectives of benefiting dramatically from the long life cycle of a product that does what it is supposed to do.”
