Tri-Canada Sanitary Stainless Steel Fittings

Tri-Canada has been one of the country’s largest suppliers of sanitary fittings and tubing for almost 50 years. Over that time we have learned a lot about sanitary fittings and tubing and in today’s international marketplace, we can assure you that not all fittings have the high quality standards of previous years. 

Tri-Canada sources all our raw materials and finished product, whenever possible, from domestic manufacturers with proven track records for quality. While it is no longer possible to source only domestic manufactured sanitary fittings, we do require that all of our sanitary tubular fittings are manufactured from sanitary grade, domestically manufactured RathGibson or United sanitary stainless steel tubing.

Tri-Canada CRN Registered Fittings if specified at time of order

TSSA is the Technical Standards and Safety Authority. They are an independent, non-government, non-profit organization. The Boiler and Pressure Vessels Safety Division of TSSA is responsible for the regulation of boilers, pressure vessels, pressure piping, fittings and hose assemblies as outlined under the CSA B51-97: Boiler, Pressure Vessel and Pressure Piping Code. Each province of Canada has a similar regulating body. CRN stands for Canadian Registration Number. This is a number issued by TSSA to a company signifying that the fittings produced by that company comply with the requirements of TSSA. The CRN number is engraved on the fittings that are approved by the TSSA. The approval process for CRN includes the assembly and testing of a representative cross-section of fittings under the supervision of the TSSA. The CRN approval process also includes protocols for Documentation, Testing and Quality Control of all CRN fittings from Tri-Canada. All customers must confirm with Tri-Canada Sales Representatives at time of order that CRN approval is required.
