Tanks, storage vessels, boilers, pressure vessels are all critical components in our modern industrial infrastructure. As such it takes dedication and a high degree skill upon the part of the tank fabricator to produce a viable, dependable and custom product. Of all the attributes that go into fabricating a tank, the single most important quality is the overall exactness and performance of the welds. While other aspects are important, the welds are the single most important feature in which quality has a direct impact on the functionality and performance of the tank.
Every weld on a pressure vessel should be of unparalleled quality and must be replicated throughout the vessel. It is incumbent that the tank fabricator inspect the quality of each and every weld, even those that are not in a critical junction. The most common failure point of pressure retaining parts is the welds. Nominally, the welds are stronger than the surrounding materials but this is only true if the welding is performed properly. It takes a good deal of experience and a high degree of skill in order to produce quality welds, time and time again.
Quality Over Cost
It can not be emphasized enough that quality fabrication must take precedence over cost considerations for a tank or pressure vessel. Should a weld fail, the results can be catastrophic to both property and life, so quality has to be of prime importance when considering tank fabrication.
Tank fabrication is important to continuing our modern industrial processes. A tank fabricator must have the full knowledge and experience in producing robust and dependable tanks. The single most important aspect being the exacting nature and unparalleled quality of their welds. When it comes to tank fabrication, quality is safety.
