Why are deaerators ASME Code stamped?Mike Koontz PE MBA
ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code was first issued over 100 years ago, and has since evolved into a leading standard internationally.
The back cover of the Code book contains a statement regarding ASME’s commitment to public safety.
Deaerators under pressure contain large quantities of stored energy which can be dangerous.
The ASME Code contains rules and requirements for design, manufacture and inspection of pressure vessels, including deaerators.
The stamp that is applied to the finished product assures that the vessel has been produced with safety in mind.
