Pressure equipment manufacturers since 1978
Wide Variety of Manufacturing Equipment
To manufacture its tubular heat exchangers, metal expansion joints, process plants and pressure vessels according to the highest standards in quality, and meet the requirements of customers, as well as the legislative and regulatory requirements, SACOME has a wide variety of manufacturing equipments: welding machines, lathes, milling, boring, drilling, cylinders, saws, lifting equipment, tube expander machine and so on.
The highlights, as an intrinsic part of the “Know-how” and the Research, Development and Innovation activity of SACOME are:
- Tube corrugating machines, either manually or automatically.
- Hydraulic presses to conform bellows, up to nominal diameter ND3000.
- Machine for mechanical conformation of bellows, up to a nominal diameter of ND7000.
The Welding is the key factor
The welding is the key factor in the manufacturing of equipments. The welding is an indispensable feature in our equipment, and this task is done with the highest quality standards.
At SACOME we are using the most modern welding machines in the market: Orbital GTAW Welding Machines of medium and high thicknesses, orbital GTAW welding machines for tube – to – tubesheet welds, GTAW and MICROPLASMA welding machines for automatic welding of thin thicknesses (from 0.3 mm), columns for semiautomatic GMAW welding of large diameter elements, as well as many machines for common welding procedures GTAW, GMAW, SMAW (electrode), PLASMA, etc. This capability is managed by European Welding Engineers, and welders are qualified in accordance with ASME and EN codes.
Manufacturing Process in accordance with 2014/68/EU
Manufacturing is guaranteed by several quality controls performed on our equipments: Inspection of incoming raw materials, traceability, visual inspection and dimensional control in different stages, leak testing, hydraulic testing, finishing, cleaning, painting if applicable, packaging and preparation for shipment.
Also, other inspections are usually performed: radiographic examination of welds (using both X-ray and radioactive isotopes), dye penetrant, ultrasonic examination, magnetic particles and other non-destructive tests according to customer requirements. These are outsourced to recognized third-party organizations.
The manufacture of our tubular heat exchangers, metal expansion joints, process plants and pressure vessels have been successfully supervised and inspected by the most renowned Inspection Agencies.
Manufacturing Inspections, Tests and Quality Controls
These inspections are carried out according to the procedures and guidelines approved by our Quality Department, which certifies those tests by external recognised agencies, always done by qualified workers.
We guarantee the manufacturing of our shell and tube heat exchangers, metal expansion joints, process plants and pressure vessels by means of different quality controls. We are listing some of them as follows:
- Inspections of raw materials reception
- Visual inspection and dimensional control at all stages of manufacturing
- X-Ray tests of welding
- Dye penetrants / magnetic particles
- Pressure tests (hydraulic)
- Leak testing (air, helium)
- Materials identification (PMI)
Authorised Independent Bodies and Approved Entities
The manufacturing and inspections of our tubular heat exchangers, metal expansion joints, process plants and pressure vessels can be supervised and certified by an authorised independent body and approved entities:
