Bete Fog Nozzle Inc., Greenfield, Mass., received ASME certifications for the design and manufacture of pressure vessels that meet ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code Section VIII, Division 1 as well as power piping in accordance with ASME B31.1. The company also received National Board of Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspectors certification for the repair and alteration of pressure vessels.

According to the company, Bete is the first spray nozzle company to obtain these ASME certifications. The process involves an independent audit of all design, material procurement, manufacturing, inspection and nondestructive testing processes. Bete Fog expects the certifications to provide customers with ease of sourcing equipment for spraying installations because the spray nozzle, feed piping and vessel can be supplied by a single company.
