High-pressure vessels are containers utilized to regulate reactions and processes that require liquids or gases at substantially extreme pressure and temperature. Industrial uses are the most common, but they can also be found in our homes in the form of boilers, propane tanks, or natural gas cylinders. 

About High-Pressure Vessels 

The application of high-temperature pressure vessels is critical for a variety of processes. The size, temperature, and pressure range of these vessels differ depending on their purpose.

High-pressure reactor vessels are widely used in laboratories, small-scale manufacturing of fine and speciality chemicals, chemical engineering processes, and large-scale research and defence organizations.

Pressure vessels are used for everything from small-scale oil refinery production to large-scale industrial operations. They are used to conduct reactions or as compressed air receivers, reactors, nuclear reactors, and natural gas containers.

Why Do High-Pressure Vessels Explode?

As pressure vessels are operated at extreme pressure and temperature, the possibility of explosion naturally increases. So, for extreme operating conditions, a vessel must be standard and certified, for example, ASEM U stamp pressure vessels. 

U Stamp pressure vessels are designed according to specific guidelines that reduce the chance of explosions. The pressure vessels are labelled as U-stamp pressure vessels, this certification denotes it meets the standard guidelines. 

U stamps are not enough, the following factors are among the most common causes of pressure vessel explosions. 

  1. Lack of monitoring: Manual negligence while operating pressure reactor vessels can result in an explosion. 
  1. Excessive and High Pressure and Temperature:- There are a variety of vessels and each has its specified pressure and temperature range and anything higher than the specified limit can put everything at stake. 
  2. Improper Design and Manufacturing of the vessel:- Faulty designs or any sort of error while manufacturing the high-temperature pressure vessel, will fail to support the reaction process and an explosion can be observed or wastage of the vessel.
  3. Improper Installation and Testing:- Negligence in inspecting, testing, and maintaining the pressure vessel is a poor practice that ends in unfavourable circumstances.
  4. Use of Unstandard Quality Materials:- The manufacturer should oblige to the standard rules and regulations as the slightest compromise can turn out to be a liability while putting other assets at risk.  
  5. Improper repair of a leak:- The damaged, corrosive vessels if remain unchecked and unrepaired lead to hazardous explosions mostly. As a result, a high-pressure reactor vessel needs to be regularly inspected and maintained to ensure it is operating as it should. 

Utilizing high-temperature pressure vessels of high quality prevents explosions. For over 40 years, Amar has been delivering industries in India with certified and standard reactors and vessels of varying pressure and temperature, from laboratory to industrial applications.

It is currently the largest manufacturer and exporter in this industry. High-pressure vessels with volumes ranging from 25 mL to 100 Ltr, pressure ranges of up to 350 bar, and temperature tolerances of up to 500°C, are easily accessible. The high-pressure reactor vessels are ex-proof, CE-certified / CSA-certified electrical, PED / ASME U Stamp certified and made of SS-316, Hastelloy, Monel, Nickel, Inconel, Titanium, and Zirconium. To eliminate manual errors, you can opt for our systems that are semi-automated or fully PC-controlled and automated systems.
