ASME Pressure Vessel Nameplates

Designed to safely house gases and liquids needed for tool and machine operation, pressure vessels play a pivotal role in most manufacturing and industrial processes. Improper identification, however, can cause unwanted downtime, workplace accidents, and even physical injury. Pressure vessel nampleates and custom stamping can help prevent this.

Pressure vessels are manufactured from varying components, depending on the materials they are designed to contain. Nameplates are the easiest way to make everyone aware of a pressure vessel and its contents, and Big City Manufacturing is a first-choice standard and custom vessel nameplate supplier.

Vessel nameplates provide useful information about equipment, including vessel traceability and the appropriate American Society of Mechanical Engineers, or ASME, code. This helps anyone on the manufacturing floor to:

  • Understand equipment usage
  • Ensure compliance
  • Confirm traceability
  • Find compatible equipment when repair or replacement is necessary
