Pressure Vessel Terminology

  • ABS: American Bureau of Shipping. Inspects and certifies pressure vessels manufactured for use on ships built under their auspices. (www.eagle.org)
  • AIR DRYER: Usually a pair of vertical pressure vessels piped together and filled with desiccant. Moisture is removed from the compressed air supply to protect equipment. To allow for continuous service, one tank is active as the other is being dried out.
  • AIR RECEIVER: A vessel designed to specific rules to store air under pressure. Often called an AIR TANK.
  • ANODES: Rods of magnesium alloy installed in Glass Lined Hot water Storage tanks. They erode first, thus protecting the steel tank. They must be changed as necessary. They are sometimes installed in Cement lined tanks, but never with Epoxy.
  • ANSI: American National Standards Institute. Oversees the creation and use of guidelines for US Industry. ANSI rated flanges are an example related to pressure vessels. (www.ansi.org)
  • ASME: American Society of Mechanical Engineers. The Group that oversees boiler and pressure vessel construction and safety rules in the USA. (www.asme.org)
  • ATMOSPHERE: One atmosphere is approximately 14.7 psi at sea level.
  • BAG TANK: See BLADDER TANK.
