How BEPeterson Meets Global Quality Requirements of Pressure VesselsFebruary 26, 2016
Boilers and pressure vessels are used all over the world in oil and gas, and energy industries. In order to ensure safety and operational efficiency of the pressure vessel equipment, certain regulations and codes have been developed to maintain their design and manufacturing quality. The most important certification for boiler and pressure vessel manufacturing is the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code (BPVC).
What is ASME Certification?
ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers) is an inspection agency that specializes in providing certifications to organizations that manufacture pressure vessels. It has a specific code to describe the nature of the design and manufacturing process. It also provides information about the quality and safety measures that need be taken during the manufacturing process. It comprises several sections – each one dedicated to different types of pressure vessels. A few examples of these include power boilers, pressure vessels, transport tanks, and heating boilers.
How Does BEPeterson meet ASME BPVC Requirements?
BEPeterson strives to continually meet the requirements of ASME BPVC in terms of product design, fabrication, inspection, and testing. When it comes to ASME accreditation, we at BEPeterson have been awarded many certifications. The following are our awards from ASME:
- ASME Section VIII:
- S Certificate of Authorization – for Power Boilers
- U Certificate of Authorization – for Pressure Vessels
- UM Certificate of Authorization – Miniature Pressure Vessels
- R Certificate of Authorization – Boiler/Pressure Vessel Repair or Alteration
Welders and weld procedures certified to ASME Section 9 and AWS D1.1 and D1.6
Apart from ASME certifications, BEPeterson has been awarded certifications by other regulatory agencies as well. We hold certifications from:
- TUV AD2000
- ISO 9001:2015 NSAI
- American Bureau of Shipping (ABS)
- The National Board of Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspectors
Quality is imperative when concerning different types of pressure vessels. When you contact BEPeterson, you can be assured of receiving pressure vessels, which have met global regulations of quality, design, engineering, fabrication, and testing.
