ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code Week is a semi-annual event held by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) to develop and update the Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code (BPVC). The BPVC is a set of safety standards for the design, construction, and operation of boilers and pressure vessels. First issued in 1914, today the BPVC is used by engineers, manufacturers, and operators in 100 countries around the world to ensure the safety of these critical pieces of equipment.
The next Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code Week is happening from May 14-19th in Las Vegas, Nevada. These weeklong events are some of the largest gatherings of boiler and pressure vessel experts in the world. It is at these events that each section of the BPVC is developed by volunteer committees of engineers and other experts from industry, academia, and government, who work tirelessly to keep the code up-to-date with the latest safety standards and technologies. Their work is essential to ensuring the safety of boilers and pressure vessels, which are used in a wide variety of industries, including power generation, manufacturing, and transportation.
The proper development of standards and codes is vital to protecting life and minimizing the risk of injury and damage. Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code Week plays an essential role in ensuring that the code continues to be updated with the most current knowledge from leading experts in the field and helps to ensure the safety of boilers and pressure vessels globally.
