Sweco Fab., a division of PT&P, fabricated a water treatment vessel from 3/8″ thick SA516 Grade 70 carbon steel for a refining facility in Texas. This pressure vessel has an 84″ outside diameter, is 11′ tangent to tangent and has an overall height of 14′-8″. It is designed for maximum working pressure of 100 psig at 100°F. A radiography test and hydrotest at 130 psig, held for 1 hour was conducted prior to shipment.

Attend a live Webinar introducing Sweco, Fab. Inc., the ASME design and fabrication division of PT&P. Learn how we design these components for high temperature, high pressure, and/or corrosive environments. Discover the different materials used based on a variety of applications. View some of the very unique and intricate Sweco custom designs, and corresponding technical drawings. Sweco designs and manufactures Pressure Vessels and Tanks, Pig Launchers and Receivers, Duct Work, Transition Pieces, Bellmouth Reducers, Spectacle and Line Blinds, Air Intake Stacks and Dampers, Conical Strainers, Instrument Stands and other custom fabricated products.
The featured presenter, Jerry Godina has over 13 years experience as a pipe support designer and manages PT&P’s engineer training development program. He also inspects existing supports, consults on site remediation projects and oversees installation on a regular basis.
This Glycol Makeup Tank is fabricated entirely from ASTM A240-304 stainless steel and is rated for 0 psig at 150°F. The tank has a 1,000 gallon capacity and measures 48″ I.D. x 10′-8″ seam-to-seam. The stand pictured behind is also fabricated from stainless steel and measures 11′ high. The customer ordered six additional units and all the Makeup Tanks underwent leak testing prior to shipment.

This high pressure knock-out drum has a 2.5″ thick shell fabricated from ASTM SA516 Grade 70, and a SA105 and SA350 carbon steel flange. The drum has a 48″ diameter, a total length of 15’8″ and weighs over 23,000 lb. It underwent a hydro-test and design test per ASME section VIII-1 “U” stamp vessel prior to shipment.
This process vessel has an inside diameter of 48″ and measures 60″ tangent to tangent. The overall height of this vessel is 81″, and measures 120″ including the legs. It is fabricated from 1/2″ 516-70 carbon steel material. This vessel is designed and fabricated according to ASME Section VIII Div 1 codes. It has a capacity of 500 gallons with an internal design pressure of 50 PSIG. The maximum acceptable working pressure is 178 PSIG. This process vessel was heat treated for stress corrosion resistance in the field and 100% x-ray tested and hydro-tested at 231 PSIG prior to being shipped to the customer. This vessel was designed for the customer as a replacement vessel for one in the field that had already provided 20 years of service in a mildly corrosive environment.
Sweco Fab, Inc. worked with the customer to provide a vessel that was even more efficient than the previous one by including 1/8″ thicker walls, an additional 12″ between tangents, heat treatment, an internal drip plate, and an OSHA compliant ladder and platform.
These molecular sieve vessels are designed for a biofuel production line. They are fabricated from stainless steel with carbon steel base rings. The vessels have an outside diameter of 24″ and measures 214″ in length. The maximum allowable working pressure is 123 PSIG @ 400ºF. These ASME Code pressure vessels were hydro-tested at 160 PSIG and x-ray tested prior to being shipped to the customer.
