ASME N-Stamp

The ASME code is regarded as the world’s leading set of rules regarding pressure equipment and is a mark of the utmost product and process quality. In addition to the demands for manufacturer certification, quality assurance and material selection, it also governs the requirements for valves and core technical components.

Valves and pump protection systems for main and auxiliary cooling circuits, (waste) water treatment plants, remote heating pipes and fire protection circuits including fire hydrants are subject to these tests if they are installed in nuclear power stations (certification to ASME Nuclear Component “N-type” as per Section III of the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code “BPVC” for power plant components). Irrespective of whether a nuclear power station or a conventional thermal power plant is concerned: When choosing suitable valves, go directly to the experts for power plant components – so that they will last you a long time.

Shut-off valves from the professionals – it pays off

Pumps, valves and their actuators control the flow of coolant in the cooling circuits and ensure constant power plant operation. But what happens if a pump in the cooling water circuit fails?
