Guide to current and archival publications of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers

About the Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code

The Library has a nearly complete run of the Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code (BPVC) beginning with 1914, the first edition.  The BPVC is part of the standards collection and does not circulate.  

Other ASME Standards and Codes

In additon to the BPVC, ASME publishes a wide range of standards covering piping, fittings, bolts, valves, hoists, cranes, fasteners, and elevators and escalators.  The Library maintains collections of current and archival ASME standards.  Local patrons may use the standards in the Library or check them out for 48 hours.  Out of town patrons may request standards through the Library's Document Delivery Service.  Search the Library's catalog for holdings.
