The KW Designed Solutions Pinned Closure Pressure Vessels are predominantly used for production or R&D applications. The closure provides quick opening and closing of the pressure vessel and high cyclic duty with a minimal number of components. Removal of the pin allows the closure plug to be easily removed and, if required, the closure can be automated; with the pin requiring full engagement to activate the safety system before any test can begin.
Our Pinned Closure Pressure Vessels are slender in design and used in the vertical orientation these Vessels have a narrow footprint and require minimal shop floor space.
Applications and Customer Uses
The KW Designed Solutions Pinned Closure Pressure Vessel has proved invaluable for clients in the Scientific and Materials Research industry sector. Working closely with our clients’ specific requirements, this closure design has been developed creating a pressure vessel which uses two closure pins, which have to be fully engaged incorporating the safety system before any test can begin. An activating shot bolt secures the vessel in position whilst the operator sets up the components for testing. The equipment has been designed to perform tensile and compressive tests on test specimens under hydrogen gas pressure for the automotive industries. Using two pins was beneficial allowing space for the single and centrally positioned mechanical pull rod, the fluid and electrical feed through penetrations.
