Gas scrubber vessel design and manufactured to ASME VIII Div. 1

Technical situation:

As part of their contract, Abbfab Services manufactured the new 3350 litre capacity gas scrubber vessel to the requirements of ASME VIII Division 1 (non-code stamped). The contract also had requirements for the materials to meet the requirements of NORSOK M630 and NACE MR0175. The vessel would ultimately be put into service off shore.

Our solution:

Manufactured from 316 grade stainless, with 10mm thick, 1170mm diameter shell and 12mm thick dished heads with full material certification meeting the requirements of EN 10204 type 3.1 and fabricated to comply the requirements of ASME VIII Division 1 with all welding meeting the requirements of ASME IX. The vessel had full non-destructive testing in accordance with the requirements of the design code and was inspected by Lloyds EMEA. Hydraulic testing was undertaken to 15 bar. Upon completion, the vessel was acid pickled and then passivated, prior to packing and shipping from our works.
