Specialised Pressure Vessels are required for many varied and diverse testing applications. Different terminology can be used to describe pressure vessels based on their application or associated industry. At KW Designed Solutions we describe our Pressure Vessels being Hyperbaric Chambers, Reactor Vessels or Autoclaves. All these Vessel types are available with a closure style suited for the intended application and specified with design pressures, temperatures and working volumes.
KW Designed Solutions Hyperbaric Chambers are used extensively by companies servicing the offshore industry. Traditionally the name Hyperbaric is used to describe any chamber or vessel operating above atmospheric conditions. KW Designed Solutions Hyperbaric Chambers are ideal for simulating deep ocean pressures and the extreme, arduous subsea operating conditions that many of our customers’ products encounter on a day to day basis.
KW Designed Solutions Reactor Vessels are used in laboratories, universities and research facilities worldwide. The term reactor is used for pressure vessels designed to contain a chemical or physical reaction, the most notable type being Reactor Pressure Vessels (RPVs) that form part of nuclear reactors. In other applications, smaller reactor vessels are used to safely contain any pressure or temperature change while investigating the effects of a chemical reaction on a material or component.
KW Designed Solutions Autoclaves are used in both medical and industrial laboratories, however, the HPHT Autoclave is more commonly associated with industrial applications operating at high pressure and temperature, utilising a large quick access closure for loading and unloading.
We have designed, manufactured and supplied numerous Sight Glass Window Pressure Vessels to Universities and Research institutions where there is a requirement to view the internals of the Vessel as part of the testing activity.
