Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) October 16, 2012
Chromalox®, a leading manufacturer of electric heat and control products, has been awarded the ASME Section VII Div. 1 U stamp for the fabrication of immersion and circulation heaters at its Soissons, France facility. The facility also recently received the National Board R authorization certificate for the repair and/or alteration of boilers, pressure vessels, and other pressure-retaining items.
The certifications ensure that Chromalox heating equipment meets a rigorous schedule of requirements assigned by ASME that encompass the company’s design, manufacturing and testing protocols.
“These key certifications demonstrate Chromalox’s attention to stringent quality standards and ensures the company’s heaters meet uniform code requirements around the world,” said Thierry Desseignes, Managing Director for Europe, Middle East, Africa and India (EMEAI).
The ASME Code establishes rules that govern the design, fabrication and inspection of boilers and pressure vessels during construction. Use of the ASME certification mark is an indication of compliance with the laws and regulations of all 50 states in the United States, and all the provinces of Canada. It is also accepted in over 100 countries as a means of meeting their government safety regulations.
In addition to immersion and circulation heaters, the Soissons facility manufactures sheathed elements, process heaters, control panels, air duct heaters, industrial comfort heaters and cable accessories. In addition to the U Stamp, other certifications include: ISO, ATEX, IECEx, GOST, UL, CSA+, CQST, International Engineering Approval and Petrochemical Group Certification
