The Bendel quality control process encompasses inspection, analysis, and implementation at each stage to maintain standards of manufacturing and fabrication.
Bendel Corporation has developed our Quality Assurance Program around the requirements of the ASME Code (Section VIII, Division I) for the design and fabrication of shop built Tanks, Pressure Vessels and Shell & Tube Heat Exchangers.
The Program is documented in the Bendel Quality Control Manual and is reviewed annually to ensure compliance with all of the latest revisions of the ASME Code.
Our Quality Program is maintained to satisfy our Authorized Inspection Agency (Hartford Steam Boiler) and all customer expectations. In addition to the ASME Code, Bendel also maintains certification under the National Board Inspection Code (NBIC) for vessel field repairs and alterations.
All welders employed by Bendel are required to pass stringent performance testing requirements based on ASME Section IX prior to welding on any Code or Non-Code vessel.
