A commitment to following American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) standards is the first step in achieving a high level of safety in pressure vessel performance. Robinson Pipe & Vessel, a division of Robinson Metal, has built a reputation for delivering custom ASME pressure vessels for a variety of customers throughout the United States, Canada and Europe.
ASME standards, which regulate the design and construction of boilers and pressure vessels, help ensure safe operation and reliable performance for standard and custom ASME pressure vessels. Pressure vessels, by definition, are containers for the containment of pressure.
“It is critically important that we strictly follow ASME pressure vessel code in the design and construction of products for our customers,” says Chad Hendzel, Robinson Pipe & Vessel division manager.
ASME Pressure Vessel Manufacturing Process Excellence
Robinson Pipe & Vessel differentiates itself from most metal shops in its ability to work with a variety of materials in the design and construction of an ASME pressure vessel. Multiple grades of carbon steel and stainless steel, along with duplex stainless steel all fall within Robinson’s scope of expertise.
The ability to perform high-quality welds is a crucial element to the construction process. Robinson Pipe & Vessel supplements its highly trained team with its own AWS certified weld inspectors, along with third-party inspectors as required by ASME Section VIII Division I code.
Hendzel says, “Robinson Metal recently completed the recertification process to the ISO 9001:2015 standard, which reinforces our commitment to process excellence and customer satisfaction.”
