The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Certification Mark, which is regarded as the hallmark of acceptance and certification, is used to indicate that the stamped item(s) conform to the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code (BPVC), as well as the Bioprocessing Equipment (BPE) Standard, and Reinforced Thermoset Plastic Corrosion-Resistant Equipment (RTP-1) Standard. Utilization of the Certification Mark is a means of complying with the laws and regulations in nearly all U.S. States and Canadian Provinces. In addition, it has been estimated that over 100 countries accept the ASME BPVC as a means of meeting their government safety regulations. The quality systems of more than 7,000 companies in more than 70 countries are currently certified by ASME. Whether or not an ASME Certification Mark is legally required, it provides users with a high degree of confidence that the stamped items conform to established safety standards.
The Rose Corporation has the following ASME Certifications:
The ASME U Stamp is the certification of a manufacturer's quality control system in accordance with ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code (BPVC) Sections I, IV, VIII, X, and/or XII.The Rose Corporation holds the ASME U-Stamp which gives us the ability to manufacture and work on unfired pressure vessels. The U-Stamp represents ASME's section VIII Division 1; rules for the construction of pressure vessels. In order to obtain the U-Stamp, The Rose Corporation was required to meet ASME's guidelines for the design, fabrication, inspection, and testing of Pressure Vessels. In order to maintain the U-stamp, we regularly update our designs and fabrication processes while undergoing routine examinations and inspections.
ASME R Stamp
The Rose Corporation holds the ASME R symbol certification from the National Board of Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspectors. The R symbol stamp certifies The Rose Corporation to alter and/or repair pressure vessels, boilers, and other pressure-retaining products.
ASME S Stamp
The Rose Corporation also holds the ASME S Stamp which enables us to fabricate power boilers, power piping, and ASME Pressure Retaining Parts under Section I of the latest copy of the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code.
The NB mark is used by manufacturers to identify items registered (see Registration) with the National Board. It is also used by pressure relief device manufacturers and assemblers to identify pressure relief devices that have been certified by the National Board in accordance with NB-501, National Board Certification of Pressure Relief Devices.
