PED Pressure Vessels

BEPeterson is a PED pressure vessel manufacturer. BEPeterson builds PED pressure vessels to the European Pressure Equipment Directive or “PED” which is similar to the ASME Boiler & Pressure Vessel Code.

Both the PED and ASME provide requirements for certain pressure vessels and pressure equipment. The major difference between the ASME Code and the PED; as a directive (European law), PED compliance is mandatory within the European Union (EU). PED is required for pressure retaining equipment and for components being sent to the EU. The PED applies to equipment with pressures above 0.5 bar (approx. 7.25 psi at sea level).

PED Pressure Vessel Manufacturer

BEPeterson can build your PED pressure vessel here in the United States and ship to any country in the European Union with PED certification compliance. To further ensure the quality of our PED vessels, BEPeterson is ISO 9001:2015 certified. All PED vessels are supplied with full documentation including material test reports (MTR’s), Hydrotest reports, RT (xray) test results, and full dimensional reports. BEPeterson is also certified for ASME and TUV.

Recently BEPeterson announced the shipment of a PED Pressure Vessel for Ener-Core. The PED Pressure Vessel is the Thermal Oxidizer which makes up a key component of the Ener-Core Powerstation FP250. This system integrates the Gradual Oxidizer technology with gas turbine technology, offering both pollution control and electricity generation where previously impossible. This PED pressure vessel had a size of 60″ OD x 18.91′ OAL. The material of construction was SA-516-70. The Thermal Oxidizer pressure vessel was designed to 55 PSI @ 400 Deg F.
