Industrial fabrication is serious business.  It’s not a field for inexperienced upstarts or unqualified novices.  The standards are exacting, deviation from which potentially leading to catastrophic failures and loss of life.  Such are the reasons why critical fabrication must always comply with reliable codes.

The recommended practices of API and CSA are based on the accumulated knowledge and experience of engineers and inspectors in myriad industries.  As such, even when API or CSA compliance aren’t required, building to these codes is standard procedure at ASI.  Simply put, the time-tested principles of API and CSA are displayed in every cut and weld we make. 

American Petroleum Institute (API)

*Global demands and an increasingly competitive business environment in the oil and natural gas industry have created new measures by which organizations must demonstrate their capabilities. Today, organizations must prove that they can consistently meet customer requirements and internationally valued standards. API’s Certification Programs provide the opportunity for organizations to do just that.

For more than 85 years, API has led the development of petroleum and petrochemical equipment and operating standards. These represent the industry’s collective wisdom on everything from drill bits to environmental protection and embrace proven, sound engineering and operating practices. API maintains more than 500 standards and recommended practices. Many have been incorporated into state and federal regulations.

ASI is proudly certified by of the American Petroleum Institute, and fully licensed to build and repair steel tanks in accordance with API standards.

Canadian Welding Bureau (CWB)

The Canadian Welding Bureau was formed in 1947 to administer the W47.1 welding standard for structural steel. The CWB has today expanded its scope well beyond the original structural steel roots and is accredited by and operates under the authority of the Standards Council of Canada. The CWB qualifies welders, welding procedures as well as providing comprehensive training courses and products.

CWB is a symbol of quality, competence, and safety in the area of metal fabrication. ASI is listed on CWB’s website as CWB certified.
