Process: Pressure & Vacuum Vessels

Overview

Pressure and vacuum vessel fabrication is the fabrication of vessels which contains liquids or gases with a pressure that is considerably different from the surrounding pressure.

Pressure and vacuum vessels are sheet metal containers that can handle pressure differences safely. A pressure difference is always potentionally dangerous as it can cause the vessel to explode. That is why the fabrication of pressure vessels are regulated by stringent laws. Within the European Union this is controlled by EN 13445 (previously PD5500 or BS 5500 in the UK). For example; if the vessel is punctured, it is supposed to rupture along its wall to allow the pressure to adapt smoother to the surrounding pressure.

Usually a pressure or vacuum vessel have a cylindrical shape with spherical ends. This design is common because it has proven to be the safest and it also makes it relatively easy to estimate the vessel's properties.

Because of the complications associated with pressure and vacuum vessels, there are workshops which specialize in this kind of work.

    Fabrication-Pressure & Vacuum Vessels

    This manufacturer of paintball guns is seeking a supplier who can produce the attached air tank from aluminium. Having previously had this design manufactured overseas, the client is now keen to establish a UK supply chain. At this stage, they are hoping to establish contact with suppliers who are capable of undertaking the work, with STP drawings to follow once the feasibility of the design has been verified. This will be an ongoing requirement, making it great opportunity to supplement your long-term customer portfolio.

    Fabrication-Pressure & Vacuum Vessels

    A supplier is sought to produce the attached vacuum chamber. The client seeks budget quotations for the metal and welding work, based upon the attached drawings. They no longer have a supplier in place for this design and therefore, they are keen to speak to those who can assist. There is potential for this to lead to ongoing work for the chosen supplier. **Due to the current health climate, we ask that you only submit a quotation for this project if you are in a position to fulfil the requirement.**

    Fabrication-Pressure & Vacuum Vessels

    This client, a supplier of diesel and petrol engine systems, seeks a new supplier to produce the attached cold flush reservoir. These are to be made from mild steel and must be leak tested and pressure tested to 3 bar. This is part of an enquiry that the client is currently tendering for - should they win their tender, there will be an order to place with the possibility of additional, similar work to follow.
