Pittsburgh-based Chromalox was awarded ASME certification for its manufacturing facilities located in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico.

ASME offers certification to companies in the pressure vessel manufacturing industry to demonstrate that they comply with the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel (BPV) Code. The code establishes rules that govern the design, fabrication and inspection of boilers and pressure vessels during the manufacturing process.

Four certificates were issued to this facility:
  • "E." for electric boilers.
  • "M," for miniature boilers.
  • "S," for power boilers.
  • "U," for pressure vessels.
The symbol stamps of the ASME code will be applied to Chromalox products. The stamps are internationally known as the symbols of acceptance and certification, and are used to indicate that the stamped products conform to the latest edition of the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Codes.

The company’s Laredo, Mexico manufacturing facility also was recently awarded ISO 9001:2000 certification.
