I am not an engineer. I need to see what material specs are needed to build a pressure vessel 10" OD x 72" long with a MAWP of 6000 psi. There are 2" inlet and outlet, 2-3" outlets on 1 side. See the attached drawing. Is SCH 160 suitable?

First thing to decide is if the Bottle (tank) requires a "U" stamp. If so, you will have to have a "code" shop design and build it. They will use your basic voluum & fittings requirments, and design them to ASME standards, etc....

If no code is required that's a diffrent matter, & requires a lot of infor. depending what, & how the thing is being used for.

Thank, hope this helps some,

Thanks for the response. What would justify a "U" stamp? This is basicly a debris catcher to drop trash out of a high pressure liquid/gas stream.

Ordinarly the customer would require an ASME "U" Stamp, However, in some cases there is a product standard that requires the code in order to meet this standard.

In any case, as the manufacture, you would most likely be helt responsible for the units proformance, and as such, the code would help should any issues regarding poor or failing proformance occure,,,,provided you have MET the code. It would be difficult not to if your third party inspector is on the ball.

Any pressure vessel construction should be carefully concidered prior to being sold due to the possibilities for serious accidents occuring thru product failure.

This probley is not what you want to hear, but it can & does happen.

Thanks,

Scooter

6000 psi is nothing to play around with. Get a qualified engineer!
