NORDEN has the expertise and experience to design, fabricate and install a variety of different types and sizes of pressure vessels especially with different kinds of INTERNALS. Over the years we have worked on numerous pressure vessels with more than 70 mm wall thickness and 5000 mm diameter.
Vessels are designed and engineered using latest versions of standards and softwares such as ASME, EN, BS and PVElite, COMPRESS, NozzlePRO also finite element analysis and solid modelling.Range of materials includes carbon steel, stainless steel,monel, inconel and other exotic materials.
Pressure vessels are used in a variety of applications. These include the industry and the private sector. They appear in these sectors respectively as industrial compressed air receivers and domestic hot water storage tanks, other examples of pressure vessels are: diving cylinder, recompression chamber, distillation towers, autoclaves and many other vessels in mining or oil refineries and petrochemical plants, nuclear reactor vessel, habitat of a space ship, habitat of a submarine, pneumatic reservoir, hydraulic reservoir under pressure, rail vehicle airbrake reservoir, road vehicle airbrake reservoir and storage vessels for liquefied gases such as ammonia, chlorine, propane, butane and LPG.
For design and construction purposes, the pressure vessel is generally defined as the pressure vessel proper including welded attachments up to, and including, the nozzle flanges, screwed or welded connectors, or the edge to be welded at the first circumferential weld to connecting piping.
The range of materials used for pressure vessels is wide and includes, but is not limited to, the following:
- Carbon steel (with less than 0.25% carbon).
- Carbon manganese steel (giving higher strength than carbon steel).
- Low alloy steels.
- High alloy steels.
- Austenitic stainless steels.
- Non-ferrous materials (aluminum, copper, nickel and alloys).
- High duty bolting materials.
Clad materials are accepted by national standards but often only the base material thickness can be used in design calculations.
