Carbon steel vessels up to 3m diameter and 20 tonnes, and stainless steel vessels up to 2m diameter and 5 tonnes, are manufactured in dedicated workshops.
Vessels can be certified to European (PED 2014/68/EU), American (ASME) or Chinese (AQSIQ) regulations /codes or manufactured in accordance with classification society (ships) rules. Designs are predominantly based on the ASME B&PV code or PD 5500.
The workshops are well equipped with a wide range of cutting, rolling and welding equipment.
A large number of weld procedures conforming to either ASME IX or BS EN ISO 15614-1 (third party approved) have been developed enabling pressure vessels to be manufactured in a wide range of materials.
In house dished end manufacturing, machining, assembly and test facilities plus services such as heat treatment and surface finishing from trusted supply partners provides the complete range of services needed to manufacture pressure vessels for such a wide range of applications.
