Vessel Designers and Code Fabricators…
INFERNO routinely furnishes the Certificate of Conformance on request, stating all materials of construction meet the requirements of Section VIII, ASME B&PVC and that the Gage itself is designed to perform at the pressure and temperature listed. It is the vessel designers’ responsibility to insure that the weld pad gage will adequately reinforce the vessel because the weld pad becomes part of the vessel after welding. Vessel geometry as well as weld pad geometry must be considered. We have attempted to show complete dimensional information on the weld pads so that these calculations can be made.
We can increase any dimension on request except the glass counterbore length, “G”, to provide more vessel reinforcement. Increasing the .34″, .75″, and 1.5″ dimensions and to a lesser extent the “T” dimension can help significantly.
