Ensure compliance and gain access to international markets.
Due to the potential dangers associated with pressure equipment, manufacturers need to ensure that their products are designed, manufactured, inspected and tested in compliance with the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code.
Without ASME certification, manufacturers may find export barriers hindering their international operations. Plant operators also need to ensure the operational efficiency and safety of their pressure equipment and components throughout the plant’s lifecycle. Pressure equipment stakeholders require the help of experienced experts to mitigate safety risks and prevent equipment damage.
