PED / KIWA / PGS / Eurocode 3
Gpi can build tanks, reactors and equipment according to the most strict norms, guidelines and regulations.
Tanks and reactors for the chemical industry are often subjected to tough conditions. Equipment must, for example, be able to withstand great temperature differences, while holding highly corrosive contents and withstanding high pressures or a vacuum. Explosion risks may also play a role. Because of this, reliability, durability and safety are always top priority when designing and manufacturing these tanks.
Gpi not only builds a variety of reactors and pressure vessels, but also shop-build storage tanks or location-build tanks up to 10,000 m3 for chemical products. We are hereby able to satisfy the most stringent requirements and standards. This allows us to build PED-certified pressure vessels ourselves, and also large flat bottom tanks according to EN 14015 and API 650, and KIWA tanks according to BRL-K756.
By having engineering, production and quality control in-house, we are able to supervise quality to the greatest extent possible and guarantee you solutions which satisfy the most stringent requirements. Aside from the workmanship of our products, the documentation and material traceability of our products is of the highest standard. Naturally, we adhere to mandatory standards and regulations. All and any audits are welcome.
Since 2008, chemical storage installations must legally comply with the BRL-K903/08 standard. In these installations, vertical steel tanks of up to 150,000 m3 are required to comply with the BRL-K756-2 directive. Gpi is certified by KIWA in order to be able to design tanks according to customer specifications that comply with the relevant standards.
Does your installation fall under a PGS 29 / 30 / 31 regime? Then your tank must We would be happy to help with what this means for your tank.
In addition to storage tanks, Gpi builds related process equipment to specification. This includes reactors, process vessels, heat exchangers, evaporators, flash vessels etc. We do this for both powders and liquids. We also build tanks up to 15,000 m3 on location.
