  • Pressure Vessel Safety: Leak Before Burst

    Pressure vessels are, by nature, volatile and potentially dangerous. The job of a pressure vessel is to hold a liquid or gas at a certain temperature that is different from the outside temperature. Pressure vessels are used in a variety of industrial processes to distill liquids, compress air, hold hydraulic and pneumatic fluids and much more. Due to the highly dangerous nature of these products, there are many different regulations placed onto any pressure vessel manufacturer to ensure the safety of the vessel and the employees using the vessel. The...

  • A Future with Cryogenic Pressure Vessels

    What do cryogenic freezing and a potential alternative fuel for automobiles have in common? They both use liquefied gases stored in cryogenic pressure vessels. Cryogenic freezing may sound like something straight out of science fiction, but it is actually being researched by scientists today. If you have the money and the determination you can actually apply to be cryogenically frozen, although not in the same way as fictional heroes such as Austin Powers. After completing the rigorous application processes and jumping through a million hoops, an applicant can have their...

  • The Strain of Using a High Pressure Vessel

    High pressure vessels are manufactured to perform extremely high levels of pressure, typically between 10,000 to 15,000 PSI. For this reason, high pressure vessels are designed with high levels of strength and with the ability to adapt to internal stress and pressure levels. Like all pressure vessels, high pressure vessels are depended upon to carry a variety of contents whether it be beer, air or highly toxic chemicals at a pressure higher than that of the atmosphere. Because high pressure vessels perform at such significant levels of pounds per square...

  • The Grease Kettle's Helping Hand

    Lubricants are very important for keeping our post-industrial revolutionary world moving. No matter the kind or the intention, lubrication of all sorts are vital for a wide-range of environments and applications. A grease kettle is a kind of pressure vessel that is used to manufacture grease, which is an alternative lubricant to oil. Grease is a lubricant that is commonly used in industrial manufacturing processes and is considered a semi-solid kind that is known to be thicker and stickier in consistency than that of oil. Grease is typically made from...

  • Are Submarines a Variation of High Pressure Vessels?

    Pressure vessels are used to store varies gases and liquids at a different pressure from the outside pressure. The most efficient and effective design for a pressure vessels is a sphere. This design will equally distribute the pressure throughout a vessel's walls. However, spherical pressure vessels are very difficult and expensive to make. For this reason, most pressure vessels are cylinders with rounded caps on each end. In a way, submarines are like gigantic high pressure vessels, but there are a few major differences. It's my understanding that pressure vessels...

Industry Information

High Pressure Vessels

High pressure vessels are manufactured to be the strongest, most resistant type of pressurized tanks available and are designed to perform under greater amounts of pressure than other pressure tanks and vessels. They typically operate anywhere from 10,000 to 150,000 PSI and have the ability to alter interior stress intensity and pressure levels.

High pressure vessels reach the highest psi of any other vessel, so operator safety is a huge concern. Regular maintenance and stringent inspection procedures are required to detect any seam bursting, splitting or surface variations. All of which could lead to pressure vessel failure, an accident which often results in an explosion, fire or flying metal shrapnel. Every component of the pressure vessel must be able to withstand continuous corrosion, shock, temperature change and high amounts of pressure. These pressure tanks must meet Division III standards for the ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers) pressure vessel code, which sets design, manufacturing methods and materials used to produce ASME pressure vessels. The chemical manufacturing, food, pharmaceutical, agricultural and plastics industries regularly use high pressure vessels as chemical reactors, high-speed mixers and supercritical extraction systems, among others. Depending on the size of the vessel, and its intended application, material choice should be carefully considered.

Most high pressure vessels are defined by their psi level-10,000 or above, and are manufactured out of steel or a steel alloy to correspond with this. Carbon steel and 304 stainless steels are the most common construction metals for the tank walls, which are most often double-walled for added protection. The O-ring seals and vacuum closures must be strong and durable, since even the tiniest leak causes a major safety concern and high pressure vessels as the highest level of pressure containment are prone to leak failure. To guarantee a tight seal high pressure vessels use clover leaf and O-ring reactors to make sure they stay intact and won't burst. These ASME tanks are usually quite large, and manufactured from welded pieces of steel. The steel is always heat treated to obtain greater hardness and strength properties before being used as a high pressure tank. There are two main methods of secondary processing that the steel goes through before the tank is constructed. It is often tempered, which is a process that heats the metal to extreme temperatures, between 400 and 600ยบ C, and maintains this heat until the carbon diffuses to produce bainite or pearlite. Quenching is another common process, where the metal is heated rapidly and then cooled immediately in a bath of water or oil, further strengthening its surface properties.
