The stamp of ASME certification denotes high performance capabilities for engineered components around the world. Tested and certified according to the research and standards of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, these mechanical assemblies, systems, and structures bear the weight of the toughest jobs and highest expectations.
What is ASME?
In addition to providing services as a professional association supporting engineering practice and allied sciences, the American Society of Mechanical Engineers maintains ASME codes and standards for equipment.
Since its founding in 1880, ASME has grown as a multipurpose organization: it is at once an engineering society, a standard-governing organization, a research and development authority, a lobbying organization, a source of training and education, and an active nonprofit. ASME and its standards are both multidisciplinary and global, with members in 158 countries.
In addition to standards governing flanges and fittings, ASME’s 600+ codes and guidelines cover:
- Plumbing fixtures
- Power systems
- Boilers and pressure vessels
It’s ASME’s goal to not only institute useful standards and regulations for the sake of consistency, but to provide industry best practices that result in operational, safety, and overall cost benefits for users at all levels.
