Design Criteria7. Comparison Of Pressure Vessels Designed Under the Standard Codes8. Non-Destructive Tests Performed On Pressure Vessels9. Leak- Testing Methods On Pressure Vessels
  3. 3.  A pressure vessel is a closed container designed to hold gases or liquids at a pressure substantially different from the gauge pressure. Pressure Vessels are defined in ASME Section VIII, Div 1 introduction: “ Pressure Vessels are containers for the containment of pressure either external or internal. The pressure may be obtained from an external source, or by the application of heat from a direct or indirect source, or any combination thereof.”
  4. 4. 1. Cylindrical or Spherical Shell2. Formed Heads3. Blind Flanges, Cover Plates, Flanges4. Openings And Nozzles5. Supports
  5. 5.  Based on Manufacturing Methods:1) Welded Vessels2) Forged Vessels3) Multiwall Vessels4) Multiwall Wrapped Vessels5) Band Wrapped Vessels Based on Manufacturing Materials:1) Steel Vessels2) Non Ferrous Vessels3) Non Metallic Vessels Based on Geometric Shapes:1) Cylindrical Vessels2) Spherical Vessels3) Rectangular Vessels
  6. 6. 4) Combined Vessels  Based on Installation Methods:1) Vertical Vessels2) Horizontal Vessels Based on Pressure-Bearing Situation:1) Internal Pressure Vessels2) External Pressure Vessels Based on Wall Thickness:1) Thin Wall Vessel2) Thick Wall Vessel Based on Technological Processes:1) Reaction Vessel2) Heat Exchanger Vessel3) Separation Vessel4) Storage Container Vessel
  7. 7.  Based on Operating Temperature:1) Low Temperature Vessels(less than or equal to -20°C)2) Normal Temperature Vessels(Between -20°C to 150°C)3) Medium Temperature Vessels(Between 150°C to 450°C)4) High Temperature Vessels(more than or equal to 450°C) Based on Design Pressure:1) Low Pressure Vessels(0.1MPa to 1.6MPa)2) Medium Pressure Vessels(1.6MPa to 10MPa)3) High Pressure Vessels(10MPa to 100MPa)4) Ultra High Pressure Vessels(More than 100MPa) Based on Usage Mode:1) Fixed Pressure Vessel2) Mobile Pressure Vessel
