Stress Acquires ASME “U” Stamps and National Board “R” Stamp
Wednesday, September 1, 2010 – Stress received Certificates of Authorization from the ASME Code and the National Board of Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspectors Code to manufacture and repair pressure vessels that are fully certified to be in conformance with these respective codes. Specifically, Stress now holds BPVC Section VIII, Division 1 (“U”), Section VIII, Division 2 (“U2”), and Section VIII, Division 3 (“U3”) Stamps from ASME, and a Repair and Alterations (“R”) Code Stamp from the National Board.
These stamps are the internationally recognized authority for pressure vessel manufacturing and are normally required by law in the US for manufacturing pressure vessels. Although Stress does not routinely manufacture industrial equipment or pressure vessels, Stress has been intimately involved with its clients in all phases of pressure vessel manufacturing for many years. Our pressure vessel services include project management, design calculations, and analysis including FEA and fracture mechanics. For existing equipment, we have offered fitness-for-service evaluations for vessels and systems damaged by fire, corrosion, fatigue, etc. Coupled with this depth of practical experience, Stress can now offer our clients the added level of confidence that the Code Stamps afford.
Stress Engineering Services has a long history of engineering, analyzing, and supplying advanced pressure vessels and systems to a wide variety of industries. In recent years, Stress has pioneered the engineering development of special pressure vessels for cutting-edge collapse test systems. These have been installed in various pipe mills and other facilities around the world, and are capable of addressing the latest requirements of standards such as API, ASME, ISO, PED, etc. for operating pressures as high as 30,000 psi.
