At Tank Fab, the ASME tanks we provide meet all of the ASME standards throughout the design, manufacturing, and testing process. When it comes to safety and quality, we can assure our customers that our ASME tanks meet all of the standards, mainly the Section 8, Division 1 of the Boiler and Pressure Code. The overall purpose of the ASME code is to control certain aspects of the pressure vessel in regards to its design, building materials, what methods are used for building the tanks, inspection regulations, documentation, and the qualification of the welder. Tank Fab focuses on the 1st division code by making our ASME tanks from 304 steel or carbon steel.

By abiding by ASME codes when manufacturing pressure vessels, we are proving to our customers that we are producing a safe and worthy product. Our customers set the ASME mark as the standard for the pressure vessels they purchase as they can be sure that the pressure vessels they are purchasing and using are going to live up to the quality and safety standards they value. When our customers see that our pressure vessels are ASME certified, they understand that the product has been through the ASME’s Conformity Assessment program, which is the number one quality assurance program that is internationally recognized among all buyers and producers of pressure vessels. The ASME mark is held in the highest regard among these businesses and we strive to provide nothing short of the best in everything we do.

Design Process for ASME Tanks

At Tank Fab, we have more than 50 years of experience in designing ASME tanks using Codeware’s ASME code software which makes sure that each tank we manufacture meets the ASME and National Board Code requirements are met. We offer an in house design team that can provide the type of tank you need for your business. Once our team completes your design, we use a 3-D model to construct the tank in over 80,000-square-feet of manufacturing space. Our welding methods vary depending on your request and need to make your tank specific to your business. Once we complete the manufacturing process, we will test your pressure tank in a hydro-test that is also regulated by ASME standards. We can also offer additional types of tests at your requests such as nondestructive testing that could include liquid penetrate, ultrasonic, x-ray, and magnetic particle testing.

When you choose Tank Fab for your pressure vessels, you are making sure that your business is using the very best products available on the market.
