In January 2016 Hydra Arc obtained ASME U and U2 accreditation, allowing us to manufacture pressure vessels to ASME Section VIII Division 1 and Division 2 (ASME U and U2) standards. Hydra Arc may register pressure vessels at the National Board of Boilers and Pressure Vessels.
Hydra Arc’s Quality Management System is also fully certified in terms of ISO 9001 and ISO 3834-2.
The ASME accreditation is internationally recognised. This opens the door for Hydra Arc to serve the broader market outside South Africa. Hydra Arc is one of only six companies in South Africa that has the ‘U’ stamp accreditation and one of only two companies in South Africa that has the ‘U2’ stamp accreditation.
