ASME STANDARDS - EXAMPLES OF USE AT THIELMANN

Work

ASME’S ROLE IN STANDARDS DEVELOPMENT

The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) is a not-for-profit membership organization that promotes the art, science and practice of multidisciplinary engineering and allied sciences around the globe.

Founded in 1880 by a small group of leading industrialists to solve critical engineering challenges, ASME has played a significant role in standardization from its very beginning.

Today the ASME develops voluntary standards that enhance public safety, health, and quality of life as well as facilitate innovation, trade, and competitiveness. These standards are achieved through collaboration, knowledge sharing, career enrichment and skills development, across all engineering disciplines.

THE ASME STANDARDS BROAD REACH

The ASME is a globally-recognized, trusted source of standards relating to the field of mechanical engineering, and has over 100,000 members in 140+ countries. The standards as defined by the ASME assure quality, safety and a commitment to continuous improvement.

WHY DOES THIELMANN USE ASME STANDARDS?

Safety Is The Primary Objective

  • THIELMANN Pressure Vessels hold the ASME "U" or "UM" Code, as defined in Section VIII, Division 1.
  • The ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code (BPVC) is a standard that provides rules for the design, fabrication and inspection of boilers and pressure vessels. A pressure component designed and fabricated in accordance with this standard will have a long, useful service life that ensures the protection of human life and property.
  • Based on ASME's Section VIII, Division 1, there are distinct designations for pressure vessels which indicate that larger vessels should receive the U stamp, while smaller or miniature vessels should receive the UM stamp. However, this is not the only difference between the two. UM designated pressure vessels are not required to undergo the same inspection regimen as the larger, U stamped pressure vessels.
  • By adhering to these codes, it means that THIELMANN is fully aware and compliant with the rules governing the design, fabrication, assembly, and inspection of pressure vessel components during construction.
  • THIELMANN vessels operate in a wide variety of environments and processes, therefore as a business which prides itself on safety, it was crucial to be certified to these very high standards.

Quality and attention to detail are of paramount importance

  • As a company which prides itself on expertise and innovation, another crucial ASME standard for THIELMANN is continuous improvement. This fundamental standard is achieved by investing in staff training and education, and also reflects the culture as a whole within the business.
  • In relation to quality, THIELMANN has a dedicated quality control department, whose objective it is to ensure precision and accuracy at all times. This standard is achieved through regular quality tests and is also scrutinized by the ASME organization through their own conduction of periodic inspections.
