ASME U & UM certification extended

Hosokawa Micron B.V., designer and builder of powder process systems, has successfully extended its current U & UM stamp certificates for three more years. This means that the company complies with the Boiler and Pressure Vessel Codes (BPVCs) of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), making the company one of a select group of companies in the Netherlands.

The ASME code is now standard prescribed by many chemical companies in Europe as part of a contract for the supply of pressure equipment. Outside Europe, the code is a must.

Hosokawa Micron B.V. has been certified to produce pressure vessels according to AD-2000 HPO and ISO 3834-2 since 2015. With the ASME certification, the company is allowed to put UM stamps on pressure vessels up to 140 liters at their production facility in the Netherlands.

QSHE manager Bert Lasker: "An increasing desire for flexibility, knowledge and the wish to better meet customer-specific requirements led Hosokawa Micron B.V. to decide to start the ASME certification process, with a positive result for the company as well as our customers."

ASME U-Stamp certification provides both customer and machine operators with the peace of mind that quality brings to the table!"


Hosokawa Micron B.V. is certified in accordance with NEN-EN-ISO 14001:2015. This certification requires the implementation of an Environmental Management System consisting of requirements to ensure that all processes related to the environment are routinely identified, assessed and managed. The certification of Hosokawa Micron covers all environmental themes of ISO 14001: air, soil, energy, waste, water, noise and hazardous substances.
