Safety Measures and Guidelines Required to be followed by Pressure Vessel Manufacturers

cropped-pressure-vessels.jpg

Pressure vessel manufacturing is a process that needs proper safety measures and precautions. Any disregard to safety can lead to disastrous results. That is why government bodies have released certain guidelines and safeguarding measures to ensure that the process of manufacturing pressure vessels is devoid of any hazards.

Pressure vessel manufacturers are expected to stick of certain codes and guidelines to ensure safety of employees as well as end users. Important codes and standards are:

  • API 572 for Inspection
  • OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) 1915 Subpart K for vessels, drums, and containers
  • ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessels Code
  • API 510 Vessel Code for maintenance, alteration, and repair

What are the general safety precautions that need to be followed by pressure vessel manufacturers?

Apart from the aforementioned guidelines, there are certain general safety measures/parameters that are to be followed by the manufacturers of pressure vessel. These parameters are to make sure that there is no malfunctioning or mishap or accident related to a faulty pressure vessel.

  • Make sure that you choose the raw material of the highest grade to manufacture the vessel such as superior quality stainless steel, and alloys made of high grade nickel, carbon steel, and aluminum.
  • The welding procedure of your pressure vessels should adhere to the Section 9 of Pressure Vessel Safety by ASME Pressure Vessels.
  • Always hire welders who have cleared the qualification test ASME P1-F3.
  • Get the works stamped by the welder using your manufacturing symbol.
  • Conduct Non Destructive Examinations (NDE) with the use of magnetic particle tests, ultrasonic devices, and radiographic devices to check the quality of welded joints.
  • Make sure that you provide protective devices such as safety valves with your pressure vessels.
  • Always test the pressure bearing capacity, thickness, and mechanical strength of the steel/ alloy plates before certifying the pressure vessels fit for use.

Safety Guidelines by OSHA:

OSHA has enumerated general safety guidelines that will help the pressure vessel manufacturers:

  • Provide a protection relieving device certified by ASME_NB with the pressure vessels so as to protect it from over pressure
  • Specify the Maximum Allowable Working Pressure of the vessel as per ASME and APLI Codes

By following good operational conditions, proper safety measures and standard guidelines for manufacture, you can ensure a hazard-free process for your pressure vessels.
