Steam and Pressure Technology

Steam and pressure equipment designers, manufacturers, and operators face a complex set of challenges. They must be certified and compliant with standards around the world. They must ensure that equipment works efficiently and optimally. They need plans in place to reduce the risk of accidents – which can sometimes be catastrophic. They must ensure top-line growth in the wake of increasing price pressures from global competitors and stringent safety, quality, and environmental standards. 

Quality flaws in equipment will affect availability and maintenance costs, inevitably leading to reputation loss, reduction in orders, and an impact on your bottom line. It’s complex but the high-quality engineers at TÜV SÜD can help.  

TÜV SÜD provides inspection and certification for manufacturers to the following standards:



 

services for steam and pressure equipment manufacturers and operators

For decades, our experts have been conducting steam and pressure equipment safety and quality services. We not only stay on top of the latest trends, but we also preside on national and international standards committees. Partnering with TÜV SÜD ensures that you receive the very best expert consultation.

TÜV SÜD is an approved Notified Body 0036 and cooperation partner of an authorized inspection authority. You can obtain the CE Mark and ASME CODE acceptance from a single source. As a Notified Body 0036, we are able to provide CE Marking and ASME code acceptance from a single source. TÜV SÜD can perform a fully integrated assessment of your entire plant or installation. We use the most advanced technological equipment in order to do this. Our steam and pressure engineering experts partner with you so that you can operate with maximum availability, safety and efficiency.
