Frequently Asked Questions

  • How are pressure vessels used in the oil & gas industry?


    Pressure vessels are commonly used in the oil and gas industry for storage and transportation of liquids and gases under high pressure. They are used in the storage of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), compressed natural gas (CNG), and other petroleum products.

    Pressure vessels are also used in the oil and gas industry for the processing of crude oil and natural gas, for example, in separation and distillation towers, reactors, and heat exchangers. Additionally, pressure vessels are used in the offshore production of oil and gas, where they are employed as part of the production and storage infrastructure.

  • What are pressure vessels made from?


    Pressure vessels are used to store and transport fluids or gases at high pressures and temperatures. The materials used to manufacture pressure vessels depend on the specific requirements of the application, including the pressure and temperature requirements, the type of fluid or gas being stored or transported, and the intended service life of the vessel.

    Common materials used in the construction of pressure vessels include:

    1. Carbon steel: Carbon steel is a popular material for pressure vessels due to its strength and durability. Pressure vessel quality (PVQ) steel plate is commonly used in low to medium pressure applications.
    2. Stainless steel: Stainless steel is highly resistant to corrosion and is often used in applications where the vessel will be exposed to corrosive fluids or gases.
    3. Aluminum: Aluminum is lightweight and highly resistant to corrosion, making it a good choice for pressure vessels used in the transportation of gases.

    The specific material used to manufacture a pressure vessel will depend on the requirements of the application, as well as other factors such as cost and availability. It is important to select the appropriate material to ensure the safe and reliable operation of the pressure vessel.
