Pressure Vessels

Pressure vessels have been our specialty for many years. Pressure vessels can be built to a variety of sizes and can be furnished for atmospheric pressure, or designed for internal and external pressure. All materials are available including stainless steel, nickel alloys and reactive metals. Pressure vessels can be provided in many material finishes and weld finishes, from mill sheet and plate to a polished 320 grit surface and welds varying from an "as welded" condition to a highly polished sanitary, or corrosion resisting finish.

We can equip pressure vessels with numerous features and design options. Vertical designed reactors are typically the most cost effective design.

We can also design a system around your pressure vessel to include pumps, pressure/temperature measuring equipment, and lifting/filling equipment.

Our general design parameters for reactors is:

  • 14"-0" Diameter (4.2m)
  • 125'-0" (38.1m) long cylinder
  • 40,000 lbs (18,000 kg)
  • 15,000 psi internal pressure


  • Flanged and dished
  • Conical or Toriconical
  • Flat or sloped

Heat Transfer Surface

  • Dimpled jacket (preformed and inflated)
  • Half pipe
  • Internal coils
  • Electric heaters


  • Legs
  • Lugs
