Pressure Vessels

Pressure Vessels

hold liquids or gases well above, or below, ambient pressures. Pressure vessels are everywhere in manufacturing and process equipment, refineries and petrochemical plants, submarines, spacecraft and, more generally, in all hydraulic and pneumatic systems. Most pressure vessels are welded steel cylinders with convex or dished head closures. Pressure vessel design and operation are tightly controlled by engineering organizations. Their codes have the force of law.
