Pressure Vessel Manufacture

Richard Alan design, manufacture and install pressure vessels in a range of materials to suit a variety of industrial applications.

Pressure Vessel Design

Custom in-house pressure vessel design is a core service for Richard Alan. Its growing department of dedicated, highly qualified, experienced and motivated design engineers, all of whom possess the relevant skills and site-safety qualifications to carry out comprehensive site surveys. Each pressure vessel system is designed to your specific requirements and can be manufactured using a number of materials including stainless steel, carbon steel and exotic metals.

Its team of designers includes chartered engineers and technical draughtsmen who use industry-standard and specialist 2d & 3D design packages, enabling them to adopt a DfMA (Design for Manufacturing & Assembly) approach, allowing Richard Alan to provide customers with an optimised solution from concept, through manufacture, installation and life-long maintenance.

Design Code Standards:

•    BS EN 13445
•    PD 5500
•    ASME VIII Div.1 (Unstamped)
•    All in accordance with PED 2014-68-EU where required

Pressure Vessel Manufacture & Fabrication

Its impressive 60,000 sq. ft. production facility at Richard Alan House in West Yorkshire allows in-house production of all aspects of pressure vessel fabrication for commercial projects using state of the art machinery and provides high quality fabrication and manufacturing services as a pressure vessel systems supplier and manufacturer.

Each pressure vessel is fabricated by coded welders to the ASME IX and BS EN 287-1 2011 standards, assuring you of the highest quality results.

Raw materials are sourced responsibly and cost-effectively through its dedicated procurement department.

Manufacture Standards:

  • ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management System
  • BS EN ISO 3834-2 Quality requirements for fusion welding of metallic materials
  • BS EN 1090-1 Certificate of Conformity of the Factory Production Control for fabricated structural steel products up to and including Execution Class 3.
  • BS EN ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management System


Pressure Vessel Installation

Richard Alan also has a dedicated team of NEBOSH (National Examination Board in Occupational Safety & Health) qualified project managers and engineers who can oversee full pressure vessel installations ensuring continuity of the whole turnkey pressure vessel solution.

On completion of the pressure vessel installation its team can also provide mechanical testing and appropriate on-site training to ensure an efficient handover.


Pressure Vessel Types:

  • Cylindrical pressure vessels
  • Horizontal & vertical pressure vessels
  • Multi-compartmental pressure vessels
  • Carbon steel pressure vessels
  • Stainless steel pressure vessels
  • Reactors
  • Blending vessels
  • Heat exchangers & condensers
