Walter Sperko, long-time consultant for the National Certified Pipe Welding Bureau (NCPWB), received the 2019 J. Hall Taylor Medal from the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME).

The medal is presented for distinguished service and eminent achievement in the field of codes and standards pertaining to the broad fields of piping and pressure vessels. Walter was recognized for his leadership and professionalism in the advancement and recognition of ASME Codes and Standards, especially for significant contributions to the standardization of qualification of welders, welding operators and brazers and the procedures they follow in ASME construction.

Walter became the NCPWB’s Technical Consultant in 1987. Since then, he has been helping our contractors address issues raised by inspectors and owners and their sometimes-unrealistic demands.

  • Standards Committee IX (Welding and Brazing), Vice-Chairman
  • Standards Committee II, Subgroup on Strength of Weldments
