View images of various wall thickness and large diameter pressure vessels, boiler drums,  oil and gas separators, vapor-liquid separators, knock-out pots, knock-out drums, jacket-steam cooker vessels, flash drums manufactured and fabricated by The Halvorsen Company in the picture portfolio shown below. We design and build safe ASME code and non-code tanks. We use multiple classes of carbon steel and steel alloy materials  during the pressure vessel construction process which includes brazing, welding, forging. Some of the pictures shown below were taken during the shipping and handling process where safety is our major focus. During the delivery of pressure vessels, we manage the trucking process, the acquisition of the required permits and offloading process. Watch our video titled “Pressure Vessel Manufacturing” on YouTube.

The Halvorsen Company constructs, fabricates, builds, manufactures, tests and inspects ASME code pressure vessels, steam drums, storage tanks, autoclaves and components. We offer a wide variety of ASME certified services. Our company also engineers and designs pressure vessels in conjunction with our pressure vessel fabrication manufacturing and services.

Pressure Vessel Type Pictured Above: ASME Ammonium Carbamate Decomposition Stripper Tower
Fabrication Date: 2014
Description: 84” tapered to 60” Diameter x 27′-7” Overall length, 28,000 pounds empty
Material (s): SA240T-316/316L Stainless Steel
Industry or Application: Nitrogen Fertilizer Facility
Pressure Vessel Manufacturing and Fabrication Process Description: In the picture shown above, a certified welder at The Halvorsen Company is at work during the process of welding a circumferential seam to join 2 shell sections of a pressure vessel. The pressure vessel is now being used in an ammonium carbamate decomposition stripper tower at a fertilizer facility in the United States.  The largest inside diameter of the shell, at the bottom, is 84″. The shell tapers to a 60″ inside diameter at the top. The wall thickness is 1″.  All manufacturing processes for this pressure vessel were completed internally. The industrial pressure vessel was fabricated using an austenitic stainless steel, type 316L. This type of stainless steel minimizes corrosion problems caused by welding.  316L stainless steel is ideal for pressure vessel manufacturing and fabrication because of it’s formability and weldability characteristics, outstanding cryogenic toughness and superb corrosion resistance.  The Halvorsen Company plant in Cleveland, Ohio houses all the machines used to fabricate and manufacture large scale industrial pressure vessels. These include high performance rolling machines, heavy lifting equipment such as cranes, lifts and hoists, heat treating and stress relieving equipment, electric and gas fired car bottom furnaces, painting and sandblasting facilities. Engineers at the Halvorsen Company design pressure vessels and we are capable of manufacturing shells and complete horizontal and vertical pressure vessels from different materials such as carbon steel, nickel alloys and stainless steel. Additional process involved spot radiographic testing and inspection (Spot RT), material PMI testing (P.M.I.) and liquid penetration inspection (P.T.).

Picture of three knock-out pots, also know as "knockout drums" or "vapor–liquid separators" were custom fabricated for a refinery customer in 2010.

Pressure Vessel Type Pictured Above: Knock-Out Pots (vapor–liquid separator)
Fabrication Date: 2010
Description: 24” – 14” Diameter
Material (s): ASME SA516 Grade 70 Carbon Steel Plate
Industry or Application: Refinery
Pressure Vessel Manufacturing and Fabrication Process Description: The three knock-out pots, pictured above, also know as “knockout drums” or “vapor–liquid separators” were custom fabricated for a refinery customer in 2010. These pressure vessels will use gravity to make liquids settle to the bottom of the separator. The Halvorsen Company custom manufactures knock-out pots and offers a wide variety of options for their wall thickness, corrosion requirements, fabrication materials, size and capacity based on our customers specifications. The Halvorsen Company manufactured these small knock-out pots from a high quality carbon steel plate, ASME SA516 Grade 70, which is ideal for pressure vessel fabrication.
