This system is perfect. In my career I have not seen a safer system. CongratulationsPressure Vessel Inspector
Building the worlds highest performing extraction systems is one thing. Ensuring they are safe and legal are another.
AESI meets and exceeds all safety requirements for pressure and electrical codes in all provinces and states throughout Canada and the United States. We also now meet code for the European Union and Australia.
All our pressure vessels are built in an ASME certified facility out of 17-4 Stainless steel. This is a much higher quality alloy than traditional 304 or 316. It allows us to manufacture a higher pressure vessel that outperforms standard alloys while also reducing the wall thickness requirements.
The system is designed and built with sanitation and cleanability in mind. Eliminating low points where oils or liquids can settle. Piping and fittings throughout the system are all 316 grade stainless steel. Material Tracability Reports (MTR) is available for all components on our system.
When entering a new market globally. AESI will obtain any and all local certification required.
This growing list is a proud achievement by AESI to provide the best and safest equipment to the market.
CRN (Canadian Registration Number) is required in all provinces and territories (jurisdictions) throughout Canada.The system is governed by the general CSA B51 standard, but every province or territory can add their own specific rules to make the standard enforceable.A CRN number will be required for each jurisdiction where the pressure vessel will be operated.CRN does reference many ASME codes, however the B51 standard adds many additional rules and specifics to Canada.ASME alone is not sufficient to legally and safely operate a pressure vessel system within Canada.

ASME Boiler & Pressure Vessel Code (BPVC) is an American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) standard that regulates the design and construction of boilers and pressure vessels. Read More
The National Board of Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspectors (NBBI) is an organization that develops standards, training programs, and certifications to promote greater safety to life and property through uniformity in the construction, installation, repair, maintenance, and inspection of pressure equipment. Most notably, the National Board is responsible for the National Board Inspection Code (NBIC), an internationally recognized standard providing rules for the installation, inspection, and repair and/or alteration of boilers, pressure vessels, and pressure relief devices.

Pressure Equipment Directive (PED) 2014/68/EU of the European Union sets out the standards for the design and fabrication of pressure equipment. PED also lays out administrative procedure requirements for a conformity assessment, allowing for free placing in the Europmean market without any added local legislative requirements. PED has been mandatory throughout the EU since 30 May 2002. Read More
CSA / CSAus
CSA International (Canadian Standards Association), a member of the CSA Group, is a provider of product testing and certification services for electrical, mechanical, plumbing, gas and a variety of other products. Recognized in the U.S., Canada and around the world, CSA’s marks appear on billions of products worldwide. Electrical equipment used in electrical installations within the jurisdiction of the inspection department shall be approved and shall be of a kind or type and rating approved for the specific purpose for which it is to be employed. CSA International certification marks indicate that a product, process or service has been tested to a Canadian or U.S. standard and it meets the requirements of an applicable CSA standard or another recognized document used as a basis for certification.

Conformité Européenne, or European Conformity (CE) marking is a certification mark that indicates conformity with health, safety, and environmental protection standards for products sold within the European Economic Area (EEA). The CE marking can also be found on products sold outside the EEA that are manufactured in, or designed to be sold in, the EEA. The CE marking is the manufacturer’s declaration that the product meets the requirements of the applicable European directives. Read More
PSI Peer Review
Pressure Safety Inspectors (PSI) offers third party independent design verification (otherwise referred to as an engineering peer review) of solvent based extraction equipment. PSI has performed reviews for over two dozen original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). PSI has developed internal procedures that provide the most comprehensive engineering peer review available for solvent-based extraction equipment. Our reports are sealed by engineers licensed in California, Colorado, Maryland, Nevada, Oregon, Pennsylvania, and Washington.
