The Importance of Boiler and Pressure Vessel ASME Certification

ASME pressure vessels are used in various industries, including chemical, energy, and oil/gas to store chemicals, liquids, and more. Safety and product quality are the top concerns for individuals utilizing the pressure vessels, so it is vital that they meet specified quality standards.

The American Society of Mechanical Engineers, also known as ASME, is an independent accreditation body that regulates the design and manufacturing of pressure vessels and boilers.

The ASME BPVC Certification Program conforms to the rules governing the design, fabrication, assembly, and inspection of boiler and pressure vessel components during construction. ASME codes describe the specifications and exact features that help to ensure the safety and quality of the pressure vessels.

Owners and design professionals set quality standards through specification on their projects, and an ASME Accredited Pressure Vessel fabricator is required to assure the specified level of design and quality is met.

Pressure vessel products manufactured by ASME BPVC Certificate Holders are then certified and stamped with the certification mark in accordance with the applicable ASME BPVC Section.

As an accredited pressure vessel fabricator, Dixie Southern’s goal is to build quality pressure vessels by focusing on seamless interface through all aspects of the fabrication process and integrating quality controls as a matter of course.

Dixie Southern’s plate fabrication facilities have maintained ASME Accreditations for decades. Currently, we carry the following accreditations.

• ASME Certificate of Authorization “S”
• ASME Certificate of Authorization “U”
• National Board of Pressure Vessel Inspectors Certificate of Authorization “R”

If your project requires competitively priced ASME pressure vessels, be sure to work with an experienced ASME accredited pressure vessel fabricator, like Dixie Southern.
