ASME Aspiration for European Heathyards
Pressure Vessels Manufacturer Aspires to ASME U Stamp
West Midlands based pressure vessels manufacturer European Heathyards has today announced they have applied to ASME, American Society for Mechanical Engineers to begin the process for ASME U Stamp accreditation.
“Our commitment to new and existing customers within the pressure vessels and steam boiler industry is transparent for all to see with the drive towards ASME U stamp accreditation.”
“Achieving ASME U stamp recognition will not only strengthen our existing relationships with the likes of Alstom, E-on and EDF, but also engineer confidence to prospective new customers in selecting European Heathyards as a preferred manufacturer of pressure vessels and steam boiler equipment.”
European Heathyards currently operates a quality management system recognised and approved under BSEN9001:2008. They also have experience operating under a strict quality controlled manufacturing system that has been tailored to satisfy the intended requirements of ASME and other European Pressure Equipment Directives standards such as PED 5500.
To gain ASME U stamp accreditation European Heathyards will need to demonstrate complete traceability with respect to all materials, consumables, welder and NDT operative certification, used within its manufacturing processes A final audit is expected in the summer which it is hoped will coincide seamlessly with European Heathyards current order book.
