Pressure Vessel Inspection

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 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.


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 are used to facilitate a process in a highly contained environment. These processes can include separating materials, combining materials, breaking down materials, etc.

  • What is weld testing?
    Weld testing is a process used to evaluate the strength and quality of a weld. There are a variety of weld tests that can be performed, but the most common is the tension test. This test is used to determine the amount of force required to break a weld.
  • What is a welding certificate?
    A welding certificate is a document that certifies that a welder has completed a welding course and has the necessary skills to safely weld.
  • How often should pressure vessels be inspected?
    As a rule of thumb, pressure vessels should be inspected every five years. However, certain pressure vessels will have specific inspection requirements supplied by the manufacturers. Therefore, the frequency of pressure vessel inspections should conform to the manufacturers' requirements. Also, a pressure vessel should be inspected immediately after it’s been installed and before it’s put into service. Not sure how often you should be scheduling pressure vessel testing? Contact our team today and we can make recommendations or schedule a pressure vessel test.
  • Do all pressure vessels require regular inspections?
    Yes, in most cases, pressure vessel testing is a legal requirement.
  • What is the difference between a pressure vessel and a storage tank?
    Simply put, pressure vessels contain gases or liquids that are stored at a pressure that’s above the outside atmospheric pressure. Storage tanks store gas or liquid at the same pressure as the outside atmospheric pressure.
  • Why is concrete testing important?
    Concrete testing is important because by performing these tests, we are measuring factors like strength, consistency, weight, air content, and temperature. However, by performing concrete testing consistently, we will detect changes in the concrete that could affect its long-term performance. Contact us today to learn more about concrete testing.
  • What are core tests in concrete testing?
    Core tests are performed to assess whether the concrete in a new structure complies with strength-based acceptance criteria. It is also used in existing structures for the evaluation of structural capacity.
  • What industries take advantage of corrosion testing?
    Corrosion testing is used in the automotive, aerospace, materials and the construction industry.
  • What is corrosion testing?
