Code Welding since 1972

DB Welding has a track record of fabricating equipment to the various code requirements, whether it is ASME, API or AWS.

D/B Welding is a custom design and welding fabrication company specializing in equipment and components for the Energy and the Commercial/Industrial Building sectors. Our team has more than 140 years of experience in all aspects of design, fabrication and construction in both sectors.

We are an American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and The National Board of Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspectors (National Board) accredited shop, licensed to design, build and repair ASME code pressure vessels. Our welders are also qualified under American Petroleum Institute (API) and ASME to weld on oil and gas pipelines, plants and related facilities. In addition we are qualified under the American Welding Society (AWS) to weld structural components for commercial/industrial buildings and structures.

After 40 plus years of welding, principally in the oil and gas industry, throughout the United States, Donald Brunson decided to retire. This retirement lasted less than two years.

Prior customers and associates convinced him to start a fabrication shop. Even though the equipment he began building was not built to any welding code, Mr. Brunson’s experience and integrity would only allow him to weld and fabricate as if constructed under the strictest of codes.

In addition many of Mr. Brunson’s customers recognized his creative capabilities and began asking him to design and build components and equipment for various purposes. Many of these designs are in production in flares, structural components and machines.

In three years, D/B Welding went from a one-man semi-retired hobby/welding shop to a 20 employee ASME and National Board certified boiler and pressure vessel welding and repair facility and AWS accredited welding shop. The goal of D/B Welding is to build quality products that meet or exceed the applicable standards so that we can assure our clients they are receiving the best product in the industry at a fair and honest price.

Pressure Vessels – ASME/National Board

D/B Welding designs and fabricates pressure vessels in compliance with the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code (ASME BPVC). Vessels built to ASME BPVC requirements are used worldwide in Oil & Gas, Power Generation, Refineries, Chemical Plants and many other industrial sectors.

Components designed and built in accordance with the ASME BPVC must pass rigorous design, inspection and testing requirements. The customer is assured that any vessel fabricated under the ASME BPVC has passed stringent requirements and is recognized worldwide.

D/B Welding is authorized under the National Board to make metallic repairs and alterations to ASME BPVC vessels.

Pipelines and Related Facilities – API/ASME

D/B Welding designs and fabricates components and equipment for pipelines, plants and related facilities in accordance with API and/or ASME standards for welding and construction.

API & ASME set forth engineering design, welding, fabrication, material, ??? and inspection requirements that are necessary for the safe design, construction, and operation of pressure piping. Facilities built to these codes have been in service for more than 50 years transporting natural gas, oil and many other gas and liquid products.

Structural – AWS

D/B Welding designs and fabricates structural components for commercial/industrial applications in accordance with AWS standards. AWS codes contain the requirements for fabricating and erecting welded steel structures of carbon steel, stainless steel and aluminum.

At D/B Welding, we are dedicated to providing the highest quality of workmanship. In our daily activities, as well as long-term interactions with employees and clients, we keep four things in mind:

  • Respect is earned
  • Honesty is appreciated
  • Trust is gained
  • Loyalty is returned

One day we will all be just a memory-try your best to make it a good one!
