Adams-ISC is an ASME Certified Pressure Vessel Manufacturer

Pressure vessels are used for the storage and containment of liquids, vapors, and/or gases at pressure levels greater than that of atmospheric pressure. They are designed to operate at pressures more than 15 psig, and are made of a variety of metals (primarily steel alloys), high-strength plastic, or fiberglass. These tanks are usually cylindrical in shape with a horizontal or vertical orientation.

Pressure vessels can contain a wide variety of materials and are designed with a specific purpose. They are used in a number of industrial applications within the chemical, pharmaceutical, food and beverage, oil and gas, power generation, fire containment, and plastics industries. Examples of common pressure vessels include storage tanks, process vessels, boilers, and heat exchangers. Because they work under immense pressures, a ruptured pressure vessel can be extremely dangerous, leading to gas leaks, fires, and even explosions. These tanks are commonly required to be registered ASME pressure vessels and adhere to strict safety and quality regulations set by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers to ensure the safety of those working with or around pressure vessels.
