Best-In-Class Pressure Vessels Custom-Built For The Energy Industry

Commissioning a bespoke pressure vessel isn’t easy. Codes like the ASME BPVC give you rough guidelines to follow, but there's still a lot to think about. From head type to the type and thickness of the lining, the choices you make will have a profound impact on the performance and durability of the finished product - which is why it’s important to pick a manufacturer that knows exactly what they’re doing. 

That’s where we come in. Since acquiring Yorkshire-based pressure vessel specialists Whiteley Read in 2018, we’ve had the capability to design and manufacture high-integrity pressure vessels for a range of oil & gas industry clients – including EPC companies and blue-chip giants like BP, Centrica and Shell.

We also fabricate high-integrity carbon capture and storage vessels for companies that are in the process of improving their green credentials.

Pressure Vessel Experts

We specialise in the design and manufacture of thick-walled pressure vessels – using our extensive knowledge of exotic materials to fabricate units that can withstand pressures in excess of 460 barg.  

We’re also one of a select handful of manufacturers that know how to manufacture using 500-QT steel and we’re well-versed at building vessels that are lined with corrosion resistant materials (CRMs) like Austenitic or Duplex Stainless Steel for units that need to be installed in inhospitable environments.

Code-Compliant By Design

All of our pressure vessels are designed to be fully compliant with the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code (BPVC). Depending on your requirements, we can also design and manufacture pressure vessels that are compliant with standards like the British PD5500, the EU’s EN13445 or France’s CODAP codes. 

Not sure which codes you’ll need to comply with? We’re also well placed to advise on the ins and outs of pressure vessel regulation so get in touch, and one of our engineers will help you out.

An Established & Reliable Process

We’re happy to design and manufacture bespoke pressure vessels to meet a pre-existing specification, but most of our builds start with an in-depth discovery process. 

Clients come to us with a rough sketch or a list of requirements, and we sit down with them to spec out their project. Whether we come to your site or meet up on Teams, our engineers will ask you about your needs, get themselves up to speed on the project, and start building a detailed list of requirements.

Once we know exactly what you need, our design team will swing into action; drawing up plans for a vessel that’ll meet your needs. They’ll also work hard to minimise the weight, size, and footprint of your vessel; whittling down the cost without sacrificing durability or corrosion resistance. 

Once we’ve shown you their designs and received your approval, we’ll fabricate, test, deliver and install your pressure vessel(s) – taking care of the fine detail so that you can focus on more important tasks.

We Design To Meet Any Specification

There aren’t many companies that can match our capabilities. Whether you’re trying to replace a single unit that’s reached the end of its life span, or order multiple pressure vessels to fit out a brand new site, we’re well placed to provide you with custom-built:

  • Storage vessels
  • Boilers
  • Heat Exchangers
  • Process vessels
  • Separation vessels
  • Filter vessels
  • Coalescers
  • Carbon capture vessels
  • Hydrogen capture vessels
