Wichita Falls, TX – The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) recently certified the Tranter Mexico Operation quality assurance system in accordance with international guidelines. ASME is the leading international developer of codes and standards associated with the art, science, and practice of mechanical engineering. The Certificate of Authorization confirms that the Tranter Mexico Operation heat exchangers are built and serviced strictly in accordance with the provisions of the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Codes. More specifically, the “U” stamp allows Tranter to build ASME heat exchangers and the “R” stamp allows the Tranter Mexico Operation to repair any ASME code heat exchangers in their facility.
For ASME certification, Tranter underwent exhaustive preparation and extensive planning to ensure that the guidelines of the facility were compliant with the ASME code. After significant effort, the certification was granted. “We are pleased that the audit passed without any restrictions. The Tranter Mexico facility has worked extremely hard and committed themselves to ensure that they are manufacturing and servicing our heat exchangers under the strict ASME code standards. Having this certification complete is a testament to their dedication and hard work,” said John Arnold, Quality Assurance Manager for the Americas. The certificate is valid for three years with a yearly unannounced review to inspect that the guidelines are compliant.
“The ASME certification is very important to support Tranter’s global manufacturing initiatives as well to support the new service center in expanding its position in the growing Latin American market”, said Antonio Garza, the Vice President of Tranter Latin America.
