The Harris Products Group, a subsidiary of The Lincoln Electric Company, is committed to minimizing risks to human health and the environment in and around the workplace. More specifically, Harris is dedicated to maintaining the health and safety of its employees, customers and neighbors, as well as preserving the integrity of our environment. This commitment is supported by management and is the individual and collective responsibility of all Harris employees.
We will achieve these goals through our EHS system and strive for continuous improvement by:
- Educating and training to institutionalize EHS values throughout the company.
- Setting and monitoring EHS objectives to improve employee health and safety and reduce adverse environmental impacts.
- Raising EHS awareness of all employees and stressing personal accountability throughout the Harris system.
- Complying with or exceeding all applicable EHS regulatory requirements.
- Conserving natural resources through pollution prevention, energy conservation and waste minimization.
Each Harris manufacturing facility is ISO 9001 certified for quality management systems and has achieved or is working toward ISO 14001 certification for environmental management systems.
During Harris’ melting process, the heat of each metal is precisely checked before pouring to assure consistency and predictability. For example, brazing alloys are strictly monitored to ensure phosphorus content that is within 1/10th of a percent of the alloy’s chemical specifications. This provides a liquidus variation of no more than +/- 6ºF (+/- 3.3ºC). Harris welding alloys are manufactured to meet rigid requirements for cleanliness and wire temper. They conform to specific AWS standards for a wide variety of metal grades.
These quality controls combine to produce a superior, precisely controlled product for predictable melting every time.
Harris’ product expertise includes the world’s most consistent and reliable torches, tips, mixers and heating assemblies, as well as gas control equipment, from regulators to entire distribution systems. Every Harris equipment product is 100%, inspected, 100% of the time, for consistency and precision.
Industrial regulators are tested to have a leakage rate of less than 1 x10-3 cubic centimeters per second. Each specialty gas regulator is tested to conform to a gas leakage rate of less than 1 x10-9 cubic centimeters per second. Harris heating, welding and brazing tips are individually inspected for the quality, consistency and length of the flame they produce. Every torch and machine is checked to ensure the highest standards of safety and performance are met.
