What is U-Stamp certification?

Sweco Fab, Inc., our subsidiary, holds the ASME U-Stamp which gives us the ability to manufacture and work on unfired pressure vessels. Sweco acquired the ASME U-stamp in 1962 and has maintained it through-out the regular audits. The U-Stamp represents ASME's section VIII Division 1; rules for the construction of pressure vessels. In order to obtain the U-Stamp, Sweco Fab 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.
