Design, Design Certification and Registration

Pressure vessel and heat exchanger design, 3D modelling and drafting

Pacific Engineering Pty Ltd provides years of industry experience supporting the design, design verification and registration, re-rating, fitness-for-service evaluations and fabrication inspection in addition to the supply of pressure equipment.

For design, design verification and certification; Pacific Engineering uses 'AS1210+ Pressure Vessel Design Software', which is exclusively designed for the design and design verification of pressure vessels and shell and tube heat exchangers. Designed, developed and owned by Pacific Engineering Pty Ltd, 'AS1210+' runs under Windows 11 and performs design verification calculations of pressure vessels and heat exchangers in accordance with AS 1210 and ASME including wind and seismic analysis to relevant Australian standards AS 1170.2 & AS 1170.4. The program interacts with 3D CAD software to generate 3D models and quickly create pressure vessel drawings.

We, at Pacific Engineering, have implemented a vision to become the highest quality and most customer-focused provider of pressure equipment.


Pressure vessel and heat exchanger design

Pacific Engineering Pty Ltd has an experienced team of design engineers to undertake designs of pressure vessels to AS 1210 & ASME, shell and tube heat exchangers to TEMA, AS 1210 & ASME, atmospheric storage tanks to API 620, API 650 & AS 1692 and produce detail drawings based on codes and client specifications.

Pacific Engineering provides design calculations and detail drawings for:

  • Pressure vessels to AS 1210 and ASME
  • Shell and tube heat exchangers of any TEMA and ASME types
  • Storage tanks to AS 1692, API 620 and API 650
  • Transportable vessels (AS 1210, AS 2809.1 to 6), flammable liquids (AS 2809.2), compressed liquefied gases (AS 2809.3), toxic and corrosive cargoes (AS 2809.4), cryogenic vessels (AS 2809.6)
  • Finned tube air coolers to AS 1210 and ASME
  • Tubesheet thickness designs to TEMA and/or ASME
  • Wind loads to AS 1170.2 and seismic design loads to AS 1170.4.



Pressure vessel design verification, certification, and registration

We verify and register pressure vessel designs in any state or territory in Australia. Pressure equipment such as heat exchangers, finned tube air coolers, boilers, autoclaves, air receivers, condensers, tanks, gas bottles and pressure vessels within air conditioning units and other pressurised systems are subject to work health and safety (WHS) laws and statutory regulations in Australia.

Pacific Engineering Pty Ltd is a design-verifying body complying with AS 3920. Our quality management system complies with AS/NZS ISO 9001 and has been certified for a scope including 'pressure vessel and heat exchanger design and design verification'.

We also provide design verification services for New Zealand. Our verifiers registered in New Zealand, verify the design calculations/drawings and certify the pressure vessels for use in New Zealand.



Pacific Engineering's quality management system has been certified to AS/NZS ISO 9001 for a scope including design, design verification, fabrication and inspection of pressure vessels, shell and tube heat exchangers, air coolers, pressure piping, atmospheric storage tanks, silos and steel structures.
