ASME PRESSURE VESSELS
In the United States, pressure vessel fabrication must comply with the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Boiler and Pressure Vessel (BPVC) Code Section VIII Division 1. The ASME Code regulates standards of materials, welding procedures, qualifications, nondestructive examination and inspection of vessels built for service in application greater than 15 psi. Typical process vessels requiring ASME certification include;
Chemical, Pharmaceutical and Food Process Reactors – Heat Exchangers – Lethal Service Vessels – Storage Tanks – Transporters – Air Receivers – Mix Tanks – Columns – Evaporators – Fermentation Vessels – Waste Storage Tanks – Demineralizers and many others depending upon the end user’s custom application.
Fourinox has built pressure vessels to the ASME code since 1974 and continues today in service to various process industries nationwide and around the world.
