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.

Various Industries Use Pressure Vessels

Since a wide range of industries use pressure vessels, there is no one single design that fulfils all the needs for this type of equipment. We provide you with the following examples of the industries that rely upon these vessels all throughout the year:

  • Energy industries that range from oil and gas ones to ones specialising in alternative energies
  • Military
  • Agricultural industries
  • Chemical industries
  • Defence industries

Types of Certification That Pertain to Pressure Vessels

Many of the vessels must carry ISO and or ASME certification for industries to use them legitimately. Either certification ensures that the pressure vessel is durable and reliable. To be specific, ISO 9001:2015 covers these vessels while ASME has three divisions for the purpose of certifying that the pressure vessels are ready for use in specific purposes.

Pressure Vessel Designs Should Be of a Global Nature

When shipping to other countries, manufactures need to be certain that their pressure vessel designs are globally acceptable. Not only should they adhere to the above ISO code and the ASME Boiler and Pressure Code of North America, but they should also comply with Australian codes as well as with such codes as the CSA B51 of Canada and the EU’s Pressure Equipment Directive just for two examples of other codes in the world that govern the manufacturing of these vessels.

Pressure Vessels Require Durable Materials

Most designs of pressure vessels call for resilient materials, such as high alloy metals, stainless steel of various grades, carbon steels, aluminium and more. On top of these materials, the best parts and substances need to be used in finishing the vessels appropriately.

Pressure Vessels Must Go through Inspections to Prove Their Quality

All pressure vessels need to pass testing before they are ready for the market. Examples of these tests include:

  • Hydro-Test
  • Radiography
  • He Leak Testing
  • Positive Material Identification
  • MT
  • NDE-PT
  • UT
  • Dimensional – Ferrite, Impact and Fero Arm

Examples of Technical Specifications for Pressure Vessels

  • Ferrous and non-ferrous materials used in construction
  • Capacity up to 5392 litres
  • Fabricated weight up to 200 Tonnes
  • Underground and above ground models available for LPG storage vessels
  • Large columns and vessels that can be insulated and have other accessories added
  • Customised specifications to suit a client’s needs

To ensure that you receive the best pressure vessel designs for your purposes, deal with only a reputable manufacturer. Do not settle for inadequate results since they can lead to major problems.
