Replacement Pressure Vessel V559, Design, Manufacture & Installation
Richard Alan were subsequently commissioned in March 2017 with the design, manufacture and installation of a replacement vessel with a larger capacity.
A vertical configuration overflow vessel, using 316 grade stainless steel with mill finish. 2100mm diameter X 2627mm with dished ends and carbon steel frame designed and fabricated to PD 5500: 2015. Site glasses were to be included into the vessel shell so the phase separation of liquids could be seen, allowances had to be made for the incorporation of control instrumentation including weigh cells and level instrumentation.
During the design stage of both projects there were several challenges with the reaction forces and supporting structure required for the new relief line and in the allowances that had to be made in the design of the new V559 vessel to allow the required operation of the system.
The installation of both the projects brought about challenges with working to a tight schedule and working with and around other companies and disciplines who had their projects to complete. The project was completed on schedule and this contributed to the successful commissioning of the entire project and the epoxidation plant.
