A client in the power generation industry commissioned Orbit Industries, LLC. to custom design and fabricate an Inconel and stainless steel pressure vessel. Our team of designers worked closely with the customer on this multi-faceted process. The shell was designed per ASME section VIII Div. 1, as well as seismic considerations. Our team then designed the layout configuration of the end piping with connections to match the customer's exiting mating surfaces. We also generated all of the 2D CAD fabrication drawings for the project.

Once the design was approved, our skilled craftsmen performed a series of procedures during the fabrication of this pressure vessel, from plasma cutting and machining, to welding and inspection,Due to the high temperature application of this project (400F to 1400F) T-304L stainless steel and Inconel 800H where required. The completed pressure vessel was 18' long, 60" wide, with tolerances of ±.002" on the machined parts, and ±1/16" on the fabricated parts. Prior to shipping the product, we performed a full series of testing, including radiographic and liquid penetrant inspections.

Once all quality requirements were verified by the customer's quality inspectors, we specially crated the vessel, and delivered it to our client's site in Colorado. To learn more about this project, or for more information on our other products and services, please contact Orbit Industries.
