M.E.G.A. offers a vast array of ASME-compliant pipe fittings that are aligned with the rigorous technical specifications and standards of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. Our fittings are crafted to ensure the utmost compatibility and performance across a broad range of pressure settings and applications. 

The goal is to manufacture products that can seamlessly integrate in existing piping systems while drastically reducing the risk of leaks or structural failures. This helps guarantee the endurance of each component to high-pressure contexts and temperatures, making them ideal even when in challenging industrial environments. 


ASME B16.11 and B16.9

The ASME B16.11 and B16.9 regulations are critical standards in the field of piping and pipeline engineering, governing the design and manufacturing of different types of pipe fittings. ASME B16.11 specifies the requirements for forged fittings, including socket-weld and threaded fittings, ensuring their dimensions, tolerances, marking, and material specifications meet industry standards for safe and efficient installation. These fittings are typically used in small diameter piping systems where threaded or socket-weld connections are preferable due to ease of assembly and disassembly. 

On the other hand, ASME B16.9 covers factory-made wrought buttwelding fittings, including elbows, tees, reducers, and caps, which are essential for high-pressure and high-temperature applications. These buttwelded fittings provide a seamless, robust connection that minimizes the risk of leaks and enhances the integrity of the piping system. Both standards ensure that the fittings used in piping systems are reliable, compatible, and capable of withstanding the intended service conditions.


ASME III NCA 4200 for the nuclear sector

M.E.G.A. has earned the ASME III NCA 4200, which takes into consideration the company’s quality system program to efficiently respond to specific criteria for the production of boiler and pressure vessel. 

This is another milestone in the confirmation of M.E.G.A. accuracy in engineering and manufacturing pipe fittings made of ferrous and non-ferrous materials while adhering to quality controls and supplier management requirements. 



The ASME B31 Code for MEGALET (OLET)

The ASME B31 code is essential for technicians who work in the piping industry. It provides a comprehensive overview of the requirements and guidelines indispensable to guarantee the safety and reliability of fittings in every phase of the process - from the designing phase to the final inspection phase. 

This acknowledgement is divided into various sections:

  • ASME B31.1 which examines the compliance of power piping systems.
  • ASME B31.3 that encompasses pipe fittings employed in refineries and in chemical, pharmaceutical and textile industries. 
  • ASME B31.4 applies to pipeline systems suitable for the transportation of liquids.
  • ASME B31.8 provides clear operational guidelines in terms of design, fabrication, installation and testing of pipe fittings especially built for the transmission and distribution of gas.

Why Is It Important To Be ASME Compliant?

ASME pipe fittings are a must-have if you want to achieve the highest level of quality for your business - especially in over-regulated sectors.

In fact, the ASME standards are: 

  • globally renowned, allowing companies to commercialize their products in unbeaten markets. 
  • safer, as pipe fittings and flanges are capable of operating in high-pressure environments, displaying a great resistance without compromising performance. 
  • legally compliant, as many jurisdictions require the ASME certification for equipment used within their borders. 
  • improving efficiency by reducing material costs and energy consumption. 

As this acknowledgement is a mark of quality which assures to clients and partners the reliability and commitment of the company in guaranteeing top-tier materials and standards
