Pressure vessel is one of the most important and critical component in any processing industries, such as oil & gas, Chemical Processing Industries, Pharmaceutical. Pressure vessels often have a combination of high pressures together with high temperatures, and in some cases flammable fluids or highly radioactive materials. Because of such hazards it is imperative that the design be such that no leakage can occur. In addition these vessels have to be designed carefully to cope with the operating temperature and pressure. Plant safety and Integrity is of fundamental concern in pressure vessel design and these of course depend on the adequacy of design codes. The modes that are most likely to cause a failure of a pressure vessels, as identified by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME)Code, are as follows: Excessive elastic deformation including elastic instability, Excessive plastic deformation, Brittle fracture, Stress rupture or creep deformation (inelastic), Plastic instability and increment, collapse, High strain and low cycle fatigue, Stress corrosion, Corrosion fatigue. The proposed work focuses on design and analysis of horizontal pressure vessel for Vacuum system drain collection receiver based on (ASME) Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code, Section VIII, Division 1. As per the customer requirement, the pressure vessel will be designed for a capacity of 0.5m3. The vessel is required to contain an internal working pressure of 0.815 kg/cm2 with Temperature is 51.60C. In order to make this pressure vessel safe, the vessel is designed for Maximum pressure is 1.54 kg/cm2, with design temperature of the fluid is 1020C. The materials of the vessel for the following components are used: Shell & Head: SA 516 GR 70.The design and analysis is emphasizes basically to overcome the failures due to Support in operating condition or in hydro test condition, heavy wind at site, Earthquake, thermal stresses, full vacuum inside the vessel etc. and also overcoming defects due to Cracks in Pressure Vessel Parallel and perpendicular to vessel axis. The results are validating with the PV elite software result as per ASME Section –VIII and Division.1.
