A Pressure Vessel? Really?

FlexEJ - high specification pressure vessel

Not what you would normally expect a pressure vessel to look like? This unusual toroidal design was driven by our customer’s requirement to pressure test high technology components at high pressure but with minimum foot print and floor load in their test cell. Designed and fabricated entirely by FlexEJ’s in-house team, it’s been a long and successful project for us.

Working in close partnership with our customer over many months, using SolidWorks 3D modelling and extensive Finite Element Analysis, our engineering team came up with this shape as the best way to meet all the design constraints. It’s light and compact yet capable of operating in excess of 120Barg.

Fabricated in 5” 304 SS pipe with 100% X-ray Weld examination; dimensions are approximately 2.6m long x 1.6m wide. The flanges are all 1500# and act as the test ports. Complete with the stainless steel support frame underneath designed with ease of installation in mind.

FlexEJ specialises in high specification pressure vessels and pressure fabrication in general; if you have a project in mind, our in-house design team is always pleased to discuss. Call us now on +44(0)1384 881111 or email sales@flexej.co.uk or use Live Help on this page.
