Pressure Vessels & Tank

Pressure vessels & tanks hold liquids, vapors, or gases at high pressures, usually above 15 PSIG. Examples of common Pressure vessels & tanks used in the petroleum refining and chemical processing industries include, but are not limited to, storage tanks, boilers, and heat exchangers. Each vessel has its operating limits built in by design that it must work under, referred to as its design pressure and design temperature. Operating outside of these limits could damage the equipment and potentially lead to loss of containment or catastrophic failure.

Because they work under immense pressure, a ruptured pressure vessel can be incredibly dangerous, leading to poison gas leaks, fires, and even explosions. For this reason, pressure vessel safety is imperative. Several standards and practices cover the construction, maintenance, and inspection of pressure vessels—chief among these standards. Recent examinations of Pressure vessels & tanks have shown many cracked and damaged vessels in workplaces. Cracked and damaged vessels can result in leakage or rupture failures. Leaking vessels’ potential health and safety hazards include poisonings, suffocations, fires, and explosions. Rupture failures can be much more catastrophic and can cause considerable damage to life and property. Therefore, the safe design, installation, operation, and maintenance of pressure vessels following the appropriate codes and standards are essential to worker safety and health.

A pressure vessel is a closed container designed to hold gases or liquids at a substantially higher or lower pressure than the ambient pressure, which can be hazardous. A pressure vessel is a closed container designed to hold gases or liquids at a pressure substantially higher or lower than the ambient pressure. Examples include glassware, autoclaves, compressed gas cylinders, compressors (including refrigeration), vacuum chambers, and custom-designed laboratory vessels.

The majority of Pressure vessels & tanks are for industrial use. Some private-sector uses include hot water storage tanks and diving cylinders. Industrial uses for pressure vessels include distillation towers, hydraulic reservoirs, and containment of liquefied gases. Industrially, pressure vessels can be used for high-pressure or low-pressure containment, depending on the need of the client and the materials used. You can also use them for both cooling and process heating; moreover, as a means of achieving secondary containment in processing materials. Pressure vessels help in tandem with electric immersion heaters for use with either gases or liquids. Industrial versions of these heaters achieve the heating of various substances (water, oils, gases, and solvents) through direct contact. You can mount heaters on a pressure vessel through flanged, welded, or threaded connections. The combination of electric immersion heaters and pressure vessels is ideal for heating gases and liquids and generating steam.

Most Pressure vessels & tanks, both for private and industrial uses, use various types of steel – particularly carbon steel and stainless steel. We can weld together individual steel parts to make pressure vessel cylinders or spheres. Particular precautions determine the properties of the steel used in the forged parts. These precautions ensure the mechanical strength of the materials and the soundness of the finished pressure vessel. For example, engineering standards require only steel with high impact resistance for fabricating pressure vessels. Engineering standards also dictate unique corrosion-resistant material for some pressure vessels made from steel.

We can fabricate pressure vessels & tanks using a partially load-bearing liner made from metal, ceramic, or a polymer. This liner helps bear the internal pressure load, protects the vessel from the contained substance, and protects against leaking. Pressure vessels must follow strict manufacturing standards for fabrication.
