WEX Latina Releases ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code Section IX in Spanish
Fully authorized Spanish translation of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code launched for the Spanish-speaking engineering community
“This is an authorized translation of one of the most important welding codes in the world,” says Product Manager Gabriel Suarez. Suarez adds that its significance to the professional engineering community is based on the information it contains for the welding of pressure boilers, which are used for gas, oil, steam, water, and coal systems. The code serves to increase the safety of equipment used in manufacturing and construction and enhance overall public safety.
Engineering professionals in Chile and Panama have already purchased the code, which has been partially or fully adopted by the United States and its off-shore territories, and by the provinces of Canada.
The translated ASME code is available for purchase on the WEX Latina website, which offers additional translations of accepted welding practices including the American Welding Society (AWS) D1.1/D1.1M:2010 Structural Welding Code—Steel.
