Therefore, let’s study the parts of the pressure vessel
Head is the closing part of the vessel, as the name takes from English, it means head. The head itself is on the right and left for horizontal vessels, or for vertical vessels it is in the upper and lower parts. There are also various types of head itself, some are torisperical, shpere, ellipsnoidal, cone or even flange. All depends on the use and also from the pressure that works on the vessel itself. The type that we encounter most often is the ellipsnoidal type, in which there is a part called knucle.
A shell is a part of a cylindrical vessel, which surrounds the vessel itself. The shell is a sheet plate which is then formed (rolled) until eventually it becomes cylindrical. If the head is the head, the shell is the body or body. There is also a shell that does not go through roll process, usually it is forged.
A simple example like we saw in a fire hydrant, it has no weld weld in the middle part because it is directly formed from a plate.
Support here is a buffer, where we know the vessel can not stand alone, he needs a buffer so he can stand. And that support is implanted support. As I explained in the previous article, the division of pressure vessels, where I once mentioned vertical and horizontal vessels. For vertical pressrue, we use skirts and leg supports, there are also some that use lug. As for horizontal vessels, we use the so-called sadle. The shape, like in the picture below.
Nozzel is a connection mechanism atanra vessel with piping. As we all know, a pressure vessel is a treatment unit, while piping is the path of the fluid to be treated. Now this fluid from piping will later be input into the pressure vessel, to combine the vessel and piping, that is the nozzle. The nozzel is basically a channel, where the channel uses a flange type connector. What is a flange? Flange is a mechanism for connecting one component to another. An example of a simple connection is the type of thread, for example we want to connect a balloon with a water tap, for example, between a water tap with a screw thread or a tread. The thread is the tightening media between the two components. Now if this uses the flange type,
The platform is actually not absolutely in a vessel, because there are certain vessels that do not need a platform. The platform itself is a place where people walk or place equipment in a ‘site’, more or less that’s the sense. The problem is it’s rather difficult to explain through words, but if you look at the picture above, hopefully you better understand the meaning.
The five most common parts above are the most common, other times maybe I will discuss the details of the pressure vessel
