Pressure Vessel Design
Heat Exchanger Design

We provide pressure vessel design calculations and produce detail drawings. Pacific Engineering Pty Ltd has an experienced team of design engineers to undertake designs of presure vessels to AS1210, AS2809.1, AS2809.6 (road tankers for cryogenic liquids) & ASME, shell and tube heat exchangers to TEMA, AS1210 & ASME, transportable and cryogenic vessel to AS1210, atmospheric storage tanks to API620, API650 & AS1692 and produce detail drawings based on codes and client specifications.

We have developed a powerful computer software called "AS1210+" to speed up the design of pressure vessels and heat exchangers. The software has been exclusively designed for AS1210 Pressure Vessels (Oct 2010 revision) and integrated with TEMA and ASME to assure accurate heat exchanger designs. Pressure Vessel Design Software "AS1210+" is developed and owned by Pacific Engineering Pty Ltd.

Pressure Vessel Design Software "AS1210+"
AS1210+ Pressure Vessel Design Software consists of a fully integrated suite of computer programs for use in the design and design verification of pressure vessels and shell and tube heat exchangers in accordance with Australian standard AS1210 and international codes ASME & TEMA. The Pressure Vessel Design Software AS1210+ is developed to design a complete vessel, taking into account the entire vessel's effect on each of its components including wind and seismic loads (AS1170.2, AS1170.4). The main features of the software are:

Step by step design calculations of components for internal/external pressure, detailed printouts
Analysis of equipment subject to combined loadings including wind loads (AS1170.2) and seismic loads (AS1170.4)
External nozzle load calculations to WRC Bulletins 107
Stress analysis of large cylindrical horizontal pressure vessels by Zick method
Flange and tubesheet thickness optimisation
Tubesheet calculations to TEMA and/or ASME
Detailed supports calculations
AS1210 & ASME material property data for all material types

Some of the completed projects:
- Vapour Condenser for Crossle-McKee Pty Ltd - BlueScope Steel VIC
- 4000L Tanker for Precision Piping & Engineering Pty Ltd
- Blast Unit, 200L for Oliver Technologies Pty Ltd
- Regeneration Elecrtrical Gas Heater for BOC Limited VIC
- Self Supported Enclosed Flare Stack for ZEECO, INC - New Hope Corporation Limited QLD
- Ethylene Vessel for BECHTEL / STEWART TOLL CO - Australia Pacific LNG Project. Designed to ASME including Finite Element Analysis (FEA)
- Water Dosing Tank for HYUNDAI / DESMO / SSTM - Goliat Oil and Gas Development Project - Norway. Designed to ASME.
- Expansion Tank for HYUNDAI / DESMO / SSTM - Goliat Oil and Gas Development Project - Norway. Designed to ASME.

AS1210-2010 Pressure Vessels was published in Oct 2010 to supersede 1997 edition, its supplements and ammendments.
The main changes in the new edition are: Revision of design tensile strengths, revision of requirements for low temperature service, revision of application of safety factors for flanges and transportable vessels, revision of bolted spherical type dished end calculations, revision of nozzle reinforcement calculations, tubesheet thickness calculations to ASME, deletion of the 400 mm manhole size.
Pressure Vessel Design Software "AS1210+" considers them all.
