What Is ASME-compliant pipe?
The American Society of Mechanical Engineers, or ASME, mark is regarded as the hallmark of acceptance and certification for boiler and pressure vessel devices. Material emblazoned with the organization’s stamp conforms to the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code, or BPVC.
Greens Bayou Pipe Mill is proud to have earned the ASME S stamp, enabling us to fabricate pressure-retaining piping and parts under Section I of the latest copy of the ASME BPVC.
The ASME U stamp ensures the design, fabrication, inspection, and testing of pressure vessels conform to ASME’s guidelines. We hold the ASME U-Stamp, permitting us to work on pressure vessels and pressure vessel parts.
