Alps Welding makes a wide range of equipment, from tanks and pressure vessels to reactors and cooling towers. The company custom designs and fabricates this equipment for many different industries, such as petrochemical, food processing and power generation. To meet the diverse and demanding requirements involved with these different applications, Alps Welding has developed an extensive quality assurance (QA) program, and has been audited and accredited as an ASME Section VIII, Div. 1 fabricator.
These standards from the ASME International Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code relate to the design, fabrication, inspection, testing and certification of pressure vessels. The guidelines ensure that pressure vessels are built to safely handle extreme pressure and years of service. The company applies these same high standards and stringent quality program to every project.
ASME pressure vessel code
The ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code first originated in 1914, and has been adopted in part or in its entirety by each province in Canada and all 50 states. Its standards are considered essential in a variety of industries.
The standards include guidelines regarding appropriate materials, QA programs, pressure relief devices, fittings, hex bolts, screw threads, flange joint assemblies, the qualifications for authorized inspections, repair of pressure equipment and piping, and more.
Companies that meet the standards and earn ASME accreditation gain a number of benefits. Some of the advantages include increased quality and safety, access to new markets, and enhanced production efficiency.
Custom fabrication expertise
The increased quality realized by adopting QA programs and standards is one of the reasons Alps Welding has seen such success in its more than 40 years in operation. The company was launched in 1974, and has completed thousands of projects since its inception. It has built all types of equipment, ranging from small pipe-bodied vessels up to flare drums with 15-foot diameters. Over the years, Alps Welding has gained a reputation for reliably handling projects that are complex and time-sensitive.
