ASME SEC VII - Pressure Vessel - Tonnage

ASME SEC VII - Pressure Vessel - Tonnage

ASME SEC VII - Pressure Vessel - Tonnage

For a vessel of 3.350 m dia & 26.200 m length (T-T) and design pressure of 20 bar, So the approximate shell thickness will be 24mm by considering 3mm corrosion allowance.

i need to know the approximate tonnage for the above mentioned Pressure Vessel in empty condition.

Can any one help me to find the above said requirement.

Vessel wall weight i can calculate but the weight of saddle support etc i can't, since i don't have any calculation softwares.

Thanks in Advance. smile

RE: ASME SEC VII - Pressure Vessel - Tonnage

You know the length - diameter - thickness so why can you not work out the weight yourself?
All you need is to know the head form and the internals weight and saddle/support weights plus nozzles weight to do the calculation!!

Unless the material is something funny (Aluminium/GRP/Lead)- but even then as long as you know the density it can be estimated!!!

Dear DSB123 - Thanks for your response.

Yes, As u said the weight for the vessel and head i can calculate. But weight for the support? I think for this larger size vessel the saddle support weight also significant role. Can you please put some light on it.

RE: ASME SEC VII - Pressure Vessel - Tonnage

Weigth of Supports is dependant upon the design. You need to design the supports first then you can estimate the weight.
