Steels for pressure vessels

Pressure vessel steels cover a comprehensive grade of steels that are designed for use in pressure vessel recipients such as: tanks, boilers, heat exchangers and any other recipient containing gases or liquid at a pressure substantially different than the ambient pressure. Since reliability and safety are so critical to pressure vessels, their production is strictly regulated and tested. Pressure vessels are used for a variety of applications, most often in energy and transportation sectors. Common applications include: – on aboveground storage tanks to store chemicals and fuels, including oil, gas and petrochemicals; – belowground storage tanks to store chemicals and fuels, with the contents partially stored underground; – pressurized railroad tank cars to transport chemicals, fuels and liquids from production locations to storage and usage locations.

 

The temperatures at which gases and liquids are stored in them range from very high to very low. This factor together with how harmful or dangerous contents determine the steel grade to be used and related testing. The substances that can be contained, stored or treated, even under pressure, range from relatively harmless or non-dangerous, such as milk and palm oil, to crude oil, natural gas and their distillates, but also acids. and highly toxic or lethal chemicals. These liquids or gases can undergo various processes or simply be stored.
