Metlab offer Pressure Vessel Inspection to clients in Dublin, Cork and nationwide.
Pressure vessels are containers that hold substances at a different pressures from the outside pressure.
Almost every industrial facility will have some type of pressure vessel installed.
Although pressure vehicles are extremely common, they can be dangerous.
As the pressure inside a pressure vessel is substantially different than the pressure outside, this can lead to a potentially dangerous situation.
Pressure vessels have been known to cause fatal accidents.
Therefore, it is extremely important to have pressure vessels regularly inspected by a certified inspection team.
Types of Pressure Vessels
There are a variety of different pressure vessels found in industrial plants worldwide.
Some of the more common include:
Storage Tanks Storage tanks come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Storage tanks are designed to store gases and liquids under pressure. Storage tanks in industrial properties can hold compressed natural gas, fuel, liquefied hydrogen or other materials that are necessary for industrial applications.
Heat Exchangers As the name suggests, heat exchangers are designed to transfer heat between mediums, often liquids. As such heat exchangers are used for both cooling and heating processes.
Process Vessels Process vessels are used to facilitate a process in a highly contained environment. These processes can include separating materials, combining materials, breaking down materials, etc.
