Pressure Vessels

Pressure vessels are enclosed containers designed to hold liquids or gases at pressures considerably higher or lower than ambient. Because this equipment is operating at such pressures, it’s critical that it is designed and fabricated with extreme care to minimize serious safety risks. That’s why it is mandatory to partner with a fabricator certified by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) for your stamped pressure vessel needs.

At Goodhart Sons, Inc., we specialize in the fabrication of ASME pressure vessels and other pressurized parts. Our family-owned and -operated business has fabricated and installed high-quality steel equipment for eight decades, making us the experienced team you can trust.

Pressure Vessel Fabrication

If you’re looking to partner with pressure vessel fabrication experts that put quality and safety at the forefront, Goodhart Sons is your choice fabricator. As a leading provider in equipment fabrication and installation services, we stand by our customers through every step of the fabrication process, from concept to completion.

We have experience in fabricating pressure vessels for skid systems, pressurized parts, and standalone systems. We can also meet the needs of customer specifications for rubber-lined tanks and other lining requirements, like NSF-61.

We stamped our first pressure vessel in 1984 and have perfected the fabrication of ASME pressure vessels, power piping, and other pressurized parts in our state-of-the-art fabrication facilities comprising over 175,000 square feet of production space. We also keep up with current industry technologies to ensure that we have the advanced fabrication capabilities needed to build pressure vessels that exceed customer expectations.

Applications of ASME Pressure Vessels

Importance of Fabricating Pressure Vessels According to ASME Standards

Goodhart Sons has the know how to fabricate pressure vessel systems while adhering to standards established by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. This organization strives to advance technical knowledge across all engineering disciplines and create codes, standards, publications, and programs to improve fabrication and application safety.

We have earned our ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Certification (BPVC) for Section VIII Division 1, which verifies that we comply with ASME’s Section VIII Division 1 safety standards for pressure vessel design, fabrication, and inspection. The BPVC Section VIII Code defines various requirements that ensure pressure vessel safety and functionality:

  • Division 1: These regulations primarily address design, fabrication, testing, inspection, certification, and construction material stipulations for pressure vessels required to withstand pressures above 15 pounds-force per square inch (psi).
  • Division 2: This division details design, material, and testing methods applicable for pressure vessels used in diving.
  • Division 3: Division 3 describes detailed guidelines for pressure vessels required to withstand pressures of over 10,000 psi.

 

It’s vital that you work with a fabricator of ASME pressure vessels to ensure that your projects meet minimum safety requirements for your vessel type and application needs.
