ASME Code or ASME Standard?

Let's Talk ASME!

ASME's Boiler & Pressure Vessel Code (BPVC) was established. in the early 1900s, following two devastating boiler explosions that took place at factories in Massachusetts. Since then, the BPVC has provided guidelines that have helped to prevent accidents, by making mechanical engineering equipment safer. ASME stamped equipment have been thoroughly inspected and have met the quality and safety standards established by the BPVC. By purchasing a system that adheres to this code, you can feel confident that you are investing in a high-quality piece of equipment for your needs.

ASME stands for: American Society of Mechanical Engineers, and serves as the leading international developer of standards and codes, used to regulate the mechanical engineering industry. ASME Standard is a term widely used in fabrication, engineering and manufacturing industries. Although equipment fabricated in such fashion does NOT receive the ASME stamp, proper safety precautions, specifications, welding and fabrication approaches are all considered for added safety and

risk factors.
