By definition, a pressure vessel is a closed container that is designed to hold gases and/or liquids at pressures substantially different from ambient conditions. They are used in many applications such as oil and gas production, crude oil refineries and petrochemical plants. Pressure vessels are used as part of the process or as storage vessels for gases such as ammonia, chlorine, propane, butane and liquefied petroleum gas. More importantly, pressure vessels must operate safely within a set of process conditions as defined by the “design pressure” and “design temperature.” A pressure vessel that is inadequately designed to handle a high pressure constitutes a significan
