Becht Engineering has substantial expertise in pressure vessels. Our full-time engineering staff includes members of the ASME Committee on Pressure Vessels (BPV VIII); Subgroup on Design; Subgroup on General Requirements; Subgroup on Heat Transfer Equipment; Subgroup on High-Pressure Vessels (former Chair); Subgroup on Toughness; Working Group on Design-By-Analysis; Task Group on Impulsively Loaded Vessels; Subgroup on External Pressure; Subgroup on Elevated Temperature Design (former Chair). Our senior specialists in this area include Bob Sims, Clyde Neely, Don Kurle, Trevor Seipp, and Dr. Charles Becht, all of whom are active on key ASME Pressure Vessel Code Committees.
We perform both routine and highly complex design and analysis of pressure vessels and heat exchangers. Becht's extensive experience in detailed analysis and code intent are essential to proper interpretation of these analyses. These evaluations are performed for new and existing equipment including rerating for changing service conditions and fitness-for-service evaluations for corroded, cracked or otherwise deteriorated vessels.
