Welded vessels play a key role in most processes. However, few plants now have in-depth expertise in materials selection, fabrication and design of such vessels. As a result, plant staff often make errors that can be costly as well as compromise the suitability and life of the vessel. This three-part special report provides practical pointers that can help you avoid common mistakes and get the most appropriate, durable and cost-effective vessel.
- Part 1 looks at a dozen important factors to consider in materials selection, including metal selection and appropriate use of corrosion allowances and coatings. It includes pointers gleaned from first-hand experiences that can help you avoid costly mistakes and delays.
- Part 2 provides tips on how to avoid delays and achieve savings in the fabrication process. It also covers techniques that can improve vessel reliability and thus forestall costly repairs down the road.
- Part 3 gets into design issues. It condenses the 5,000+ pages of the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code into a simple guide when specifying vessels, heat exchangers and tanks. It focuses on 10 key factors.

The phrase “Vacuum Cleaning System” refers not only to cleaning by means of vacuum hose and tools, but also to a multitude of tasks which can be accomplished by the same basic system components: a vacuum producer and separators. In this paper, we cover the vacuum cleaning system as a tool for good housekeeping. Such a system is generally designed to pick up and convey dry and free-flowing material that can enter and pass through the vacuum cleaning tool and hose. Further, the system is designed to allow for a selected number of operators.02/24/2015

Developing Operating Procedures For Projects Involving Multiple Organizations Using a Linear Responsibility Chart
One of the difficulties of managing projects that involve several (perhaps many) organizations is that the group has no pre-established procedures for handling actions that cross organizational boundaries. This white paper by Project Success Incorporated discusses the development of a procedures manual.02/25/2008
The pressure of international competition is being felt in the field of plant engineering with a demand for shorter development times and reduced project costs. A consistent and efficient approach to plant design can help to dramatically save both time and money. Download this white paper to learn more.08/18/2010
