  • Pressure Vessel Dangers

    Pressure vessels are large strong tanks used to store fluids and gases at superior levels of pressure than the standard pressure of the atmosphere. These tanks are used in industries such as food and beverage, oil and fuel, plastic, pharmaceutical, mining operations, distillation and many more. Materials used by manufacturing companies to make these tanks must be strong and durable. Common materials used are stainless steel, aluminum, titanium, carbon alloy steel and other strong materials. Some tanks even contain a lining of a variety of metals or ceramics to help...

  • Helium Stored in Pressure Vessels

    I've always thought helium tanks resembled torpedoes. All that is missing is the fins at the end and the explosive innards. In a way, submarines are a kind of a giant pressure vessel. I've used a helium tank a couple times handing out balloons at the local farmers market. The pressure in the tank pushes the helium out and fills a balloon making some lucky child very happy. Of course, chances are their hopes and dreams are desecrated when the balloon escapes and ascends into the heavens. Helium that escapes...

  • Process Tanks and Why They're Important

    Last month I attended a West Michigan Sustainable Business Forum meeting, and it was at the City of Grand Rapids Wastewater Treatment Plant. What initially sounded like a fairly dull outing, during the tour of the plant I found myself genuinely impressed and interested. It is quite a large operation, processing approximately fifty million gallons of wastewater a day. Process tanks are an integral part of the wastewater system, from primary to secondary treatments. Of course, process tanks are used in a myriad of industries, like energy processing, plastics, and...

  • Why We Rave About the Autoclave

    Being winter-- the season of stuffy noses and achy throats-- one must take certain preventative measures towards not catching and/or spreading those pesky, mobile bugs; this includes a certain sensitivity and extra effort towards hygiene and cleanliness, such as hand sanitizers. Sanitation is, for obvious reason, especially vital in hospitals and doctors' offices-- places that contain a highly concentrated level of disease, viruses and individuals whose immune systems are especially vulnerable to such. For this reason, one can be certain to find autoclaves present in any proper institution of health....

  • Pressure Tanks and Why They Matter

    When industries need to store and/or transport large quantities of pressurized fluids, they don't just get a pressure vessel they get a pressure TANK. Pressure tanks are used by the chemical, food processing, pharmaceutical, oil and fuel industries and are used for a wide variety of applications. Like a pressure vessel, a pressure tank's purpose is for holding its contents at a consistent pressure a pressure which is higher than that of the atmosphere. Such highly pressurized contents, particularly when it is a toxic or dangerous chemical or gas, is...

Industry Information

Pressure Tanks

Pressure tanks are are vessels used to store, contain and/or transport gases, vapors and fluids at pressures above atmospheric pressure, aka high pressures. Many different types of tanks may be categorized as pressure tanks. Examples of these include: ammonia tanks, steam drums, hot water tanks, refractory lined vessels and process tanks. Pressure tanks can hold and transport substances in the service of a variety of different industries, among them food and beverage, chemical, recreation, plastic and polymer resins, rubber, military and defense, water and chemical filtration, wastewater and water treatment, pharmaceutical and oil, fuel and energy. In addition, they are also commonly partnered with well systems from which residential homes and buildings get their water supply. Some other examples of pressure tank applications include: the operation of nuclear reactor vessels, autoclaves, recompression chambers and road vehicle airbrake reservoirs, the powering of air tools and the operation of diving cylinders and other gas cylinders used in chemical, medical and industrial processes.

Pressure tanks and pressure vessels like them are produced via one of three similar processes: welding, brazing and forging. All three processes rely on high heat, an element that allows them to melt the ends of separate metal pieces and fuse them. Pressure tanks must be made from materials that can handle the high pressure, stress and potentially high temperatures to which they will be subjected. It is of the utmost importance that pressure tanks remain stable and neither lose so much pressure that they lose vapor or air to the atmosphere nor gain so much pressure that they explode or cause a fire. The best materials from which to make pressure tanks are steel and stainless steel. Steel is a great choice because it is durable, strong and able to maintain its structure even under the influence of high impact and/or extreme temperatures. Stainless steel has all of the aforementioned qualities and it is also easy to clean and resistant to corrosion, so it makes a great material for pressure tanks used in sanitary processes such as food and beverage processing, medical or laboratory applications. Other materials with which manufacturers can fabricate pressure tanks include aluminum, carbon fibers, titanium, zirconium and various high strength polymers. In addition, should the requirements of its intended application call for it, pressure tanks can be lined with polymers, rubber, a metal or a ceramic material that helps maintain the structure of the tank and prevents leaks. Other tank features that are dependent upon the cylinder’s intended application and the substance(s) it will contain include those related to size, shape, ideal pressure level and temperature range. For example, technically speaking, pressure tanks can be constructed using designs other than the cylinder, but for most applications, the cylinder provides the most stability. To serve their many possible applications, pressure tanks can be constructed as vessels with capacities ranging from five gallons to several thousand gallons. They can be as small as a coffee cup and as large as a mini-van. Pressure vessels can also feature accessories and components such as: consumable and spare parts, flanges, manways, flat cover plates, end closures, nozzles, external attachments, locking rings, reinforcing pads, backing strips, support saddles, walkways, adaptor seals, thrust rings, retaining rings, tubesheets, side ports, forged components and welded components like fittings and shells.

All pressurized containment vessels can be made to meet the specifications of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, more commonly known as ASME. ASME tanks, as they are sometimes known, are made specifically to meet the ASME quality requirements for design, fabrication, construction, use and maintenance. To keep their ASME status, these pressure vessels must also undergo periodic inspection. Many manufacturers automatically create tanks that meet ASME standards because ASME standards are so universally applied. While they are rarely required, most customers want to know that their products are high quality and safe, and ASME certification provides that reassurance. Pressure tanks can also be to fulfill the requirements of other standards both domestic and international, such as those set by UL, ASTM International, TUV the USDA, ISO, Canada, the European Union and more. Most manufacturers also produce non-code vessels.
