Global Pressure Vessel Market: Overview
Pressure vessels are containers designed to store high-pressure liquids and gasses. According to the application and regional regulations requirement, the properties of pressure vessels may vary; however, the primary role of pressure vessels is to withstand high pressure. The materials used in pressure vessels are steel and composite materials, such as carbon fiber and polymer, which can withstand the high pressure and high temperature. Pressure vessels are used as recompression chambers, distillation towers, pressure reactors, autoclaves and in mining industries, petrochemical plants, oil refineries and nuclear reactors. They are also used in storage of LPG, chlorine, and gasses in liquid forms. Traditional pressure vessels were more accident prone as compared to modern designs of pressure vessels. Modern designs and techniques are used to build pressure vessels with the help of research and development department.
