Quality Program and Code Welding

Airco Welding Services Quality Assurance program regulates Welding-related activities for ASME / NBIC Code and Safety-Related projects:

  • QC Manual controls activities required to maintain Airco Code certifications from ASME – “S” and “U” – and NBIC Repairs and Alterations – “R” Stamps. The manual is also used for other ASME Code work (i.e., B31.1, etc.))
  • QA Manual and associated QA Procedures ensure regulatory compliance with the NRC 10CFR Appendix B and ASME NQA-1 requirements for Safety-Related and Augmented Quality projects in Nuclear plants

Specialty Code Welding Services

Airco Welding Services (AWS) is a specialty welding union contractor. As such we are signatory to UA pipefitters and International Brotherhood of Boilermakers. These individuals are highly qualified, experienced, and skilled union supervision and craftsmen. In addition we employ the use of specialized state-of-the-art tools and equipment to support our customers’ requirements.

AWS has a Stringent NQA-1 Quality Program second to none in the industry. We implement this program on all “Code Compliant “ projects including, nuclear and non-nuclear work scopes. We are capable of providing “turnkey” task managed project support including project planning , project management, supervision, craft, equipment, materials, NDE, pre/post heat treat, field machining, rigging, and more under one contract. AWS can also support emergent calls for resources to support unplanned work scopes and critical situations.
