Quality & ISO 9001 - ANSAC

By: Ansac  06-Dec-2011

ISO 9001 Certification

All soda ash sold by ANSAC, and produced by our three U.S. suppliers, is manufactured in ISO 9001 certified plants.

Quality Testing

The primary responsibility for guaranteeing compliance with product specifications lies with the producers, but periodic sampling is conducted by ANSAC as follows:

  • samples are taken from rail-cars after the material has left the plant
  • independent labs test these samples for compliance with ANSAC's product specifications

In twenty five years of operation, ANSAC has detected only one incidence of non-compliance.

Handling of Quality Complaints

All quality complaints are handled through ANSAC's sales offices. When laboratory analysis is required ANSAC contracts the work out to independent labs or utilizes member company laboratories.

About Soda Ash - ANSAC

These have the same chemical properties and only differ in physical characteristics, such as bulk density and particle size and shape (which affect flow characteristics and angle of repose). The Federal Reserve Board incorporates monthly soda ash production data into monthly economic indicators used to monitor the condition of the U.S. economy.


Dense Soda Ash - ANSAC

Manufacturers of quality flat glass, glass containers and detergents rely on the purity of ANSAC dense soda ash in making the world-class products their customers demand. ANSAC dense soda ash is a premium quality product that combines a consistently high sodium carbonate content with very low impurity levels of chlorides and iron.


Medium Dense Soda Ash - ANSAC

It offers a competitive alternative to synthetic light soda ash by absorbing high levels of liquid while precluding the dusting and segregation problems often associated with lighter synthetic soda ash. Quality detergent manufacturers look to ANSAC medium dense soda ash as an attractive alternative to ANSAC dense soda ash or synthetic light soda ash.


Health and Safety - ANSAC

ANSAC is committed to ensuring the safety of people and the environment and consistently aims to maintain the highest standards of safety and quality in all that we do worldwide. Personnel entering bins or silos containing soda ash must wear safety belts properly roped to rescue facilities and be physically observed by someone not on the soda ash pile.
