Why Should You Source Your ASME Vessels from BEPeterson?January 17, 2017
Many processing applications involving bulk solids require mixing of materials at various pressures and temperatures, to achieve desired outcomes. Pressure can be applied inside the vessel to achieve a proper result. External jackets at the pressure vessel walls aid in cooling or heating the bulk solids within. BEPeterson combines its extensive knowledge of heat transfer in various applications, and conveying for designing American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) pressure vessels. These pressure vessels help our industrial clients achieve their desired outcomes, and increase their productivity. Is that all? No. This post concentrates on various aspects that make BEPeterson one of the most trusted and reliable ASME pressure vessel manufacturers in the US.
A look at BEPeterson’s ASME Pressure Vessel Capabilities
We have established a strong market presence as a leading coded pressure vessel manufacturer due to the following reasons.
- Certifications: BEPeterson currently holds ASME Code – ‘U’, ‘R’, ‘S’, and ‘UM’ stamp approvals.
- U Stamp: This certifies that we are eligible to fabricate Section VIII pressure vessels.
- UM Stamp: This certification allows us to fabricate Section VIII miniature pressure vessels.
- R Stamp: This certification is issued by the National Board of Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspections. It allows us to conduct alterations and repairs to pressure vessels and boilers.
- S Stamp: This stamp allows us to build power boilers to meet our client requirements. This stamp is applicable to the two types of boilers. The first type of boiler is the one in which vapor or steam is produced at a pressure greater than 15 PSIG (100 kPa). The second type is high-temperature water boilers that can be used with temperatures exceeding 250 degrees F (120 degrees C), or pressures greater than 160 PSIG (1.1 MPa).
- Materials: We work with a vast variety of materials. Currently, we can provide coded pressure vessels in the following materials:
- High Alloy Materials – 200 and 300 series SS, 2205 and 2207 Duplex SS
- Stainless Steel
- Carbon Steels
- Hastelloy Alloys
- Nickel Alloys –Inconel and Monel
- Technical Service: BEPeterson can work with you to design your pressure vessel application. We use the latest ASME code calculation software. Our technical experience designing and fabricating pressure vessels coupled with our software programs will help you get the highest quality fabricated pressure vessel. Our engineers meticulously follow Welding Procedure Specification (WPS) documents. These documents are updated with the most advanced, and certified welding procedures for welding different types of ferrous and non-ferrous metals. Many of the vessels are designed in Solid Works and a detailed general arrangement drawing is submitted for customer approval prior to the release of fabrication.
We can provide coded pressure vessels in polished and electro polished finish to meet client requirements.
- Testing and Examinations: All testing conducted by us is nondestructive in nature and supervised by our in-house level III technicians. We also have (2) CWI – Certified Welding Inspectors on staff. We provide the following testing and examinations:
- PMI ( Positive Material Identification)
- Dimensional – Fero Arm
- Vacuum Leak Testing
- Ferrite Testing
- Impact Testing
The above-mentioned points validate BEPeterson’s expertise and experience in building ASME pressure vessels in various specifications. Whether you are ordering the pressure vessel for the first time, or have been our regular customer, we ensure excellent quality, and world-class customer service.
