Orion Instruments® Acquires ASME U Stamp Certification

Orion Instruments® was recently certified as an ASME Section VIII, Division 1 Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code facility. This achievement verifies that ORION’s engineering, manufacturing, and quality systems meet the stringent requirements of ASME Sec. VIII, Div. 1. As a result, our capabilities now include the construction of code stamped chambers to meet end user specifications.

Adding ASME Sec. VIII, Div. 1 certification to our construction code offerings gives ORION the ability to offer custom engineering, design, and manufacturing at any level the process application may require. Customers can be assured that their magnetic level indicators (MLIs) are manufactured with the highest quality and craftsmanship regardless of construction code.

There are a limited number of MLI manufacturers with ASME Sec. VIII, Div. 1 certification.

  • ASME Sec. VIII, Div. 1 U stamp (full implementation of code with stamp, National Board Registration, 3rd party inspection, and supporting documentation)
  • Construction in accordance with ASME Sec. VIII, Div. 1
