The Halvorsen Company has become a valued supplier of steel and alloy fabrication and design services and custom built ASME code compliant oil and gas pressure vessels for refineries.  We provide custom built-to-order tanks and custom fabricated refinery grade steel and alloy shells, cones, cylinders and segments for refineries and refinery equipment manufacturers throughout the Midwestern United States.

We also handle the logistics for the safe delivery and transportation of the pressure vessels and separators to the field site or refinery. We specialize in fabricating, constructing and manufacturing pressure vessels for oil refineries, natural gas processors and other oil and gas companies that utilize and produce oil, gasoline, butane, ammonia, chlorine, LPG, propane and diesel fuels. The vessels, tanks, separators and other equipment we custom fabricate for oil and gas production are built tough because the harsh conditions involved in oil and gas production require high quality workmanship.  The pressure control equipment we build in Cleveland, Ohio will withstand high temperatures and high pressures at on-shore oil and natural gas extraction/production facilities.

The Halvorsen Company processes a variety of materials for the oil and gas refining industry including stainless steel, carbon steel, carbon alloy, nickel alloy, aluminum, copper, brass, heat resistant alloys, corrosion resistant alloys, abrasion resistant alloys, non-ferrous steel and chrome carbide overlay plates. The Halvorsen Company uses a wide range of pressure vessel quality (PVQ) steel plate to fabricate, manufacture and produce welded pressure vessels, boilers and other high pressure applications. The materials we use include the following:

  • PVQ516 (Grades 55, 60, 65, 70)
  • Carbon Steel
  • ASTM A516-70 Plate
  • HIC-Resistant Steel
  • A-36/SA-36
  • Stainless Steel
  • T-1 Steel Plate
  • Chrome Molybdenum Steel
  • A514 Steel Plate
  • Nickel Alloys
  • SA-516-70/SA-516-70N Steel Plate
  • Corrosion Resistant Alloys
  • SA-514/SA-517 Steel Plate
  • Duplex and Super Duplex Steels
  • A516/70 Steel Plate
  • Aluminium
  • Clad Materials
  • C-1045 Steel Plate

The PVQ steel plates that we use can be normalized or stress relieved. We use PVQ steel because it posseses excellent welding capabilities. The Halvorsen Company fabricates boilers and pressure vessels and their accompanying forgings with pressure vessel quality steels that also exhibit outstanding notch toughness.

We provide oil and gas refineries, along with oil and gas refinery equipment manufacturers with custom heavy steel manufacturing, metal fabricating, stainless steel fabrications, flame cut steel parts, ASME pressure vessel code (BPVC) construction services, custom refinery equipment and custom refinery component solutions. The quality standards of our close tolerance steel and alloy ASME code fabrications are the highest in the oil, gas and petroleum refining industry.

Our engineers and fabricators can work from plans, drawings or CAD designs supplied by an oil or gas refinery or from an oil, petroleum or gas refining equipment manufacturer. We can also provide design and engineering services to build the parts, components or equipment that meet your specific fabricating requirements. We use a variety of techniques and equipment to complete projects for the refining industry including laser and plasma cutting, heat treating, heavy plate rolling and welding, long press brake forming, contour beveling and hot and cold forming.

The steel fabrications and components we produce are used in refining operations and the oil, gas and petroleum refining markets throughout the United States.
