What is the ASME code for the construction of steam boilers?

The ASME Code is a U.S. design, construction, inspection, and testing code for equipment such as steam boilers and pressure vessels that establishes a set of standards for equipment to have a long service life and ensure the protection of operators working with the equipment on a daily basis.

The acronym ASME stands for the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, which was founded at the end of the 19th century and today is a worldwide society whose members are industrial engineers and manufacturers of steam and pressure equipment.
