Pressure Vessel Designs That Meet Industry Requirements

March 27, 2020

Pressure vessel designs need to be highly detailed and meet or exceed various industry requirements in order to operate safely and efficiently. Most of the time manufacturers of the vessels are adept at making both non-code and ISO or ASME vessels. Which type is right for you depends upon why you require one.

A Brief Introduction to ASME Codes, and Their Importance to Pressure Vessel Manufacturing

March 13, 2020

Pressure vessels must be built with utmost care to ensure that they operate safely at all times. The reason for this is that their purpose is to hold volatile liquids, semi-solid substances and gases at specific pressures and at times, temperatures. All this means that it is mandatory for the manufacturers to adhere to all necessary specifications during the design, engineering, and fabrication stages in order to include all features that help the pressure vessels perform optimally day after day.

The Importance of Frequent Inspections to Minimise Pressure Vessel Downtime

February 21, 2020

While any industrial equipment needs routine inspections and maintenance, this goes double for pressure vessels due to the fact that when they malfunction, personal injury and property damage can happen in the most severe situations. Remember that these vessels work by pressurising their contents at the right temperature.

Important Safety Precautions When Operating Pressure Vessels

February 7, 2020

Pressure vessels can be dangerous to operate since they are large containers that store liquids or gases at high temperatures for various purposes. Also, the contents of these containers are kept at a higher pressure than the surrounding pressure. When the pressure is not monitored and maintained correctly, it can cause serious, if not lethal, issues.

Shell and Tube Heat Exchangers: Optimal Cooling Solutions to Different Applications

January 20, 2020

Shell and tube heat exchangers are popular among many industrial and commercial applications for a good reason. For one thing, the cylindrical shells and their internally mounted tube stacks are efficient. That's a prominent feature, one that's been put to good use in steamy-hot boiler rooms. Interestingly enough, because they're so efficient, they've found a second important role, one that facilitates the cooling of excessively hot system fluids.

The Importance of Pressure Vessel Inspection to Avoid Potential Explosion Hazard

January 7, 2020

Straight to the point, for this is too serious of a matter to tolerate any distractions, this post turns towards the possibility of an explosion hazard. The pressure vessel industry has worked hard to minimize such potentially life-threatening hazards. No other risk factor consumes the attention of a design engineer more than this prospect. Of course, there are contingency plans in place, but that's not enough, not nearly.
