In October 2014 New South Wales based heating element manufacturer, Thermal Electric Elements, approached Practical Engineering for the design engineering, drafting, RPEQ verification and fabrication of a 1000NB Regeneration Heater Pressure Vessel for a 1.5MW immersion heater. Using our extensive experience in the design, verification and fabrication of pressure vessels, tanks and silos, we were able to deliver the project on time, within budget and to the highest standard.
Practical Engineering sourced local materials to produce the AS1210 compliant 1000NB class 150 6.6m long vessel. This made it the largest vessel completed in our Acacia Ridge workshop to date.
Preceding final shipment to BOC’s Bulwer Island site, the 1.5MW heater bundle was dispatched to Practical Engineering’s warehouse for final factory acceptance, client witness testing and nitrogen purging.
