How to Prevent Pressure Vessels Related Accidents

Pressure vessels, air tight containers used to carry or hold liquid, gases or process fluids, are potentially dangerous and hazardous in case they are handled carelessly.

Several accidents have occurred in the past and also in the recent times, which claimed the lives and caused serious injuries to many. There are several standards and laws implemented regarding the design, construction, welding, testing, marking, operation, inspection, and repair of pressure vessels. These laws are meant to ensure the safety of workers and the efficiency of the application operation.

Measures to Prevent Unexpected Accidents and Related Injuries

Some of the reasons that lead to life threatening accidents include faulty design, poor maintenance, corrosion, welding problems, stress, and inaccurate installation, apart from others. These common errors can be prevented at the earliest by:

  • Procuring pressure vessels from reliable manufacturers who follow certain standards in designing and manufacturing the product.
  • Maintaining pressure levels below than the maximum allowed pressure level. This will ensure that the pressure level will never reach beyond the suggested, as crossing the maximum pressure level may lead to the vessel bursting.
  • Observing process start-up and shutdown conditions, and possible process hindrances, that might lead to unforeseen industrial accidents.
  • Inspecting and testing parts of vessels on a periodic basis. This helps to ensure that parts are free from corrosion, cracks, leaks and holes, and are in excellent working condition.
  • Servicing pressure vessels at appropriate times as recommended by the respective manufacturer. Regular servicing helps to improve the efficiency of the entire unit, along with providing valuable information regarding the condition of your vessel. However, you must ensure that the servicing is done by competent and authorized personnel.
  • Providing training to workers who operate the unit, or work in the vicinity of pressure vessels. It is crucial for operators know all about its operation, installation procedures, general safety guidelines, and maintenance processes.

Procure Pressure Vessels that are ASME Code Certified

Pressure vessel related accidents can never be fully eliminated. However, the number of accidents can be reduced substantially by designing and manufacturing these pressure vessels according to international standards and codes. All pressure vessels manufactured must meet the requirements of the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code (BPVC). The code provides fundamental safety and good manufacturing practices. Adhering to the ASME BPVC helps in designing and manufacturing pressure vessels, which can provide safe and reliable performance when used in tough industrial applications.
