Cast Iron Radiators Tested and Assembled by Hand
All of our cast iron radiators are assembled and finished at our North Yorkshire factory in Scarborough. The testing process is rigorous and extensive. We have invested in ISO9001 techniques and six sigma processes to improve issues that arise during the manufacturing process.
Our castings are pressure tested once after they are cast, once after the thread has been tapped, again when the radiator is assembled into blocks as they leave the foundry. When the castings arrive at our factory in North Yorkshire, they receive a grading examination where some castings are sent for blasting and to be reprimed.
As our castings are picked they are examined again, as are they examined as they are assembled. The assembled cast iron radiator is then pressure tested in our purpose built pressure testing facility - developed in association with the Her Majesty's Health and Safety Executive. At this stage we pressure test the cast iron radiator to 8 Bar. The British standard suggests that radiator manufacturers should be tested to 2Bar, but in association with others we worked with others at the UK industry body - Cast Iron Radiators Association - to ensure that testing is above and beyond the minimum standard.
A final examination is made by our Production Manager prior to cast iron radiators leaving our factory. We assemble and finish hundreds of thousands of cast iron radiator sections every year. Every cast iron radiator is hand assembled at our North Yorkshire factory. Where we have issues, we take responsibility for those issues and correct them.
Not all cast iron radiators for sale in the UK are made in the UK, many are assembled in Asia and just painted or repackaged in the UK. We insist on British made gaskets and therefore we assemble all Traditional Radiators in Yorkshire where we can control quality.
