Albert Hodel GmbH receives pressure vessel license for the Chinese market

On the 6. June 2014 the Albert Hodel GmbH received the for the export of pressure vessels to China  necessary license level A1, D1 and D2. Level A1 means, that the highest requirements are being fulfilled and that systems with a pressure range up to 1000 bar can be produced.

Only licensed manufacturers of pressure vessels are allowed to export their products to China. They need the "Manufacture License of Special Equipment Admission" of the responsible Chinese agency CSEI (China Special Equipment Inspection).

The manufacturer has to prove in a complex licensing procedure, that he has the capability and is able to produce pressure vessels in accordance with the "Requirements for Boiler and Pressure Vessel Manufacture Licensing" and the requested quality and safety requirements.

The licensing procedure takes several days and is comparable with the requirements of the North American ASME license (ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code), which the Albert Hodel GmbH owns since 1990.

The whole spectrum of 18 required principal points, like the bid proposal management, construction, quality management, production and purchasing process, from the welding process to the point of documentation, so to say the whole process, has been certified.

The Albert Hodel GmbH traditionally has very high demands on the quality of their products. The fulfillment of the strict and recently tightened Chinese regulations and license requirements confirms once more the extraordinary manufacturing quality of the Hodel pressure vessels and enables the Albert Hodel GmbH to export their worldwide questioned products to China.
