Electric boilers and miniature boilers manufactured at Reimers are within the scope of ASME. ASME is the leading international developer of codes and standards associated with the art, science, and practice of mechanical engineering. The Boiler & Pressure Vessel Code started in 1914. ASME's codes and standards have grown to nearly 600. These offerings cover a breadth of topics, including pressure technology, nuclear plants, elevators / escalators, construction, engineering design, standardization, and performance testing.
Developing and revising ASME codes and standards occurs year-round. More than 4,700 dedicated volunteers — engineers, scientists, government officials, and others — contribute their technical expertise to protect public safety, while reflecting best practices of industry. The results of their efforts are being used in over 100 nations; thus setting the standard for code-development worldwide.
ASME develops voluntary standards that enhance public safety, health, and quality of life as well as facilitate innovation, trade, and competitiveness.
ASME standards are accepted for use in more than 100 countries around the world.
