CONTROLLED REPLACEMENT OF VERTICAL COLUMN REPLACEMENT SECTION

Portobello-RMF fabricated a vertical vessel replacement section to specific, strict measurement requirements.


Portobello-RMF are amongst the leaders in pressure equipment design and manufacture for items such as pressure vessels, heat exchanger and specialist equipment for all industrial applications. If you have a bespoke fabrication project you would like us to take on, get in touch with the team. We look forward to hearing from you.

CONTROLLED REPLACEMENT OF VERTICAL COLUMN REPLACEMENT SECTION thumbnail
  • Scope of supply: Vertical Column Replacement Section
  • Design Code: ASME VIII Div. 1
  • Size of the Vertical Vessel section: 3.9m diameter x 9.4m length x 50 tonnes
  • Materials used: Carbon Steel clad with Alloy 400
  • Project: Depropanizer Cone Section
  • Key Challenges: Fabricating to tight tolerances was one of the challenges we faced, as well as the diameter having to be within +/- 2mm to ensure clean fit up on-site. Another challenge we encountered was the careful handling of the item due to its size and weight, as this project involved components on a huge scale. Portobello-RMF managed to overcome these challenges successfully with the hard work of all our highly skilled and professional engineers.
