PSA adsorber vessels have evolved very significantly in the past two decades based on field experience and improved capabilities in material processing and computer aided engineering. Adsorber vessels designed and built by CB&I are highly-engineered, precision-crafted products that work with our adsorbent and cycle technology to yield a high-performance, durable system.
CB&I’s technological know-how and capabilities in computer-aided engineering and design assure that new and replacement PSA adsorber vessels are optimized for mechanical stress and flow distribution. Every CB&I adsorber vessel comes with complete finite element analysis design validation in accordance with ASME Code requirements. Furthermore, we never use commodity-grade material in our PSA vessels. Every client’s PSA adsorbers are made from steel meeting CB&I’s strict quality and compositional standards.
When considering replacement of one or more PSA adsorber vessels which have reached their end of life or have failed due to fatigue cracking, it is important to consider whether duplicates of the outdated original design are the best investment.
