QUALITY ASSURANCE

Artisan is proud to be the holder of three certificates of authorization issued by ASME and The National Board of Boiler and Pressure Vessels Inspectors. Listed below are the certificates held and their designations:

  • U – Pressure Vessel – Certificate #827
  • U2 – Pressure Vessel Div. 2 – Certificate #18,157
  • R – Repair – Certificate #443



Artisan holds China Special Manufacturing License #TS2200819 – 2017, for Pressure vessels D2.

Quality Assurance is part of our daily activity at Artisan Industries. Q.A. manuals have been written and implemented to cover the broad range of products fabricated and machined in our facility. These manuals address quality requirements required by ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel codes, as well as Measurement & Calibration Specification ISO-10012.

Artisan has on staff two American Welding Society Certified Welding Inspectors plus two ASNT Level II inspectors for PT & MT inspectors. This allows us to perform in-house visual, liquid penetrant and magnetic particle inspections as needed to assure quality and maintain schedules. Hydrostatic testing of fabrications is routinely performed up to 10,000 psi.
