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 company spends over £300,000 per year on fabrication work and currently seeks a new supplier to manufacture an updated design of pressure vessels. Quotes are required for 12 off, with ongoing work also available to the chosen supplier. As these will be used as part of water treatment machinery the quality of the end product is the most critical element of this enquiry, followed thereafter by price. Delivery is required within 8 weeks of the order being placed. IMPORTANT: There is a non-disclosure agreement running with this enquiry.

  5. Drawings count: 3

    Fabrication-Pressure & Vacuum Vessels

    This is an interesting and in-depth project that encompasses a number of different manufacturing processes, including cutting, welding, turning, milling, and drilling, to name but a few. The client is a manufacturer of vacuum systems with a spend in the subcontract fabrication arena that tops £50,000. They require 1 off of the attached chamber assembly and therefore, are keen to hear from suppliers that are able to undertake the project and supply the unit complete to their specifications. In addition, the client will place repeat orders moving forward, making this a chance to grow your long-term customer portfolio.

  6. Drawings count: 4

    Fabrication-Pressure & Vacuum Vessels

    Suppliers that are able to assist this well-known company with the repair/replacement of a distiller and corresponding heater are sought. With a massive annual spend of £3million in the subcontract fabrication arena, the client is looking to increase their supplier base in this area. They require the work in question to be carried out yearly, giving the right supplier an opportunity to welcome a big-spending name into their long-term customer portfolio.
