  • What are ASME Codes?

    Pressure vessels are extremely important for monitoring the use and pressure of volatile liquids and gasses. Because of their extreme importance, most pressure vessels are regulated by the ASME. The ASME is the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, which has created a variety of rules and regulations for the manufacturing of pressure vessels used in the Untied States. If a pressure vessel is not ASME rated, then it cannot be used in the United States. These rules are in place to provide a higher level of safety and caution to...

  • Sharing Pressure Vessel Technology at the Pressure Vessel Forum

    Pressure vessel manufacturers constantly look for new innovations and safety measures that will make pressure vessels better than ever. Pressure vessels are responsible for containing a wide variety of potentially-dangerous ingredients and materials that could put employees and buildings at risk if not contained properly. Pressure vessels are incredibly important in many different factory productions, and are even used in many power plants and energy-creation facilities. The failure of these containers is not an option and would spell disaster for a factory. Many pressure vessels manufacturers attend events and seminars...

  • Following the Rules with ASME Tanks

    There is a reason why we have rules in this world. If you've ever taken a history class, you know what happens when a society or group has not yet implemented and enforced a system or that society's system has been overrun and done away with by revolution, war or apocalypse chaos; rampant crime, death and a total lack of functionality. With all due respect to our fellow anarchists, human beings as a collective whole must be given a list of rules to live by and held accountable for their...

  • Decoding ASME Tanks

    Pressure vessels are tanks and containers designed to hold materials under high pressure without exploding or imploding. Each kind of pressure vessel has a specific rating system that identifies the capabilities of each tank model. The ASME rating is a standard set in place by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, which gives various code ratings to different tanks for a variety of purposes and uses in different industries. ASME tank manufacturers are companies that manufacturer pressure vessels and tanks according to all ASME specifications and code laws. Most ASME...

  • How BEPeterson Meets CRN Pressure Vessel Certification Requirements

    BEPeterson is a leading supplier of CRN pressure vessels for use by Canadian organizations. Our CRN stamped pressure vessels are used in various industries to store and transport gases, or liquids at varying pressure levels. We assume the entire responsibility for building pressure vessels and tanks for applications based in different provinces. Basic Introduction to CRN Pressure Vessels Safety is a priority for any pressure vessel. These vessels may explode under immense pressure. There have been several fatal accidents in the past due to improper pressure vessel design. Thus, design,...

Industry Information

ASME Tanks

ASME tanks are tanks that have been designed and constructed to meet the standards of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME). Specifically, they meet the standards of the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code (BPVC). Tanks themselves are high pressure vessels in which gases, vapors or fluids are held in order to be transported, mixed or stored. The ASME code of vessel manufacturing details standards for many different design components, including shape, size, construction, intended pressure level and temperature range. These standards are followed by engineers in many industries, including agriculture, plastic and polymer resin production, coatings and adhesives, rubber production, food and beverage, chemical processing, pharmaceuticals, environmental, water and chemical filtration and energy, oil and gas. ASME tanks are safer and more durable than those tanks not made to a standard.

ASME tanks may be made using a few different processes, the three most common being brazing, welding and forging. All three processes involve heating metal pieces and joining their molten ends together into the form of a pressure tank. Though the list of standards to which they are beholden is strict, manufacturers still have a lot of different design and material options when designing their ASME pressure vessels, and tanks can be constructed using both standard options and custom options. For example, they may have removable or attached lids; they may horizontally or vertically placed and they may be located above ground or below ground, depending on the application and depending on whether or not easy access to the tank is required. Furthermore, if a manufacturer so desires or requires, tanks may be constructed with stands and supports (used to support and prevent the collapse of tanks that are placed on their sides or that are very heavy), with sight glass window (used to monitor fluid inside a tank), with process plumbing or with stairways and/or ladders (for working with large tanks). In addition, manufacturers can render smaller ASME tanks portable by mounting them to the back of a large vehicle like a truck. Finally, available in capacities ranging from 50 gallons to several thousand gallons, ASME tanks may be constructed from materials including aluminum, carbon steel and low alloy steels, stainless steel, nickel, monel and other nickel alloys, titanium, inconel, hastelloy and thermoplastics with high strength properties.

Before an ASME pressure vessel is sold, manufacturers perform a number of tests and inspections to make sure that it indeed lives up to its endorsement. Some of these tests include: radiography, helium leak testing, positive material identification, impact testing, ferrite testing and hydro testing. Once an ASME tank has been constructed and sent on to its end user, in order to keep the vessel ASME compliant, said end user must conduct regular inspections and maintenance on the tank. This is because ASME pressure vessel standards not only detail design, fabrication and construction, but also installation, use and care. Tank inspection includes checking for and fixing any cracks, ruptured seams or leaks. This is very important because, due to the nature of pressure tanks, even the smallest cracks or irregularities in a vessel could result in a fire, an explosion or flying shrapnel. To themselves, others and their property safe and prevent larger problems down the line, tank owners must look for and fix to even the slightest bit of tank damage.

ASME, founded in 1880, strives to put science, learning and the arts first by, among other things, creating streamlined and consensus-based standards. Adherence to ASME standards is usually voluntary. The only scenario in which it is required is if such adherence is written into a contract or incorporated into the enforceable standards of a local, state or federal government agency. However, though it is generally voluntary to create products that meet ASME requirements, it is highly advantageous to do so, as it makes products more universally applicable and useful to a wider market. These strict standards also make products safer. In addition, ASME standards are continually reviewed and updated, so that manufacturers and engineers are always getting the best, most up to date information and recommendations. All of these benefits apply to ASME tanks. For more information on the ASME tanks and/or to discuss your requirements with a qualified supplier, reach out to one or more of the many wonderful manufacturers listed near the top of this page.
