  • Pressure Vessel Design Manualby Dennis R. Moss

    Elsevier Science 2004; US$ 210.00

    A pressure vessel is a container that holds a liquid, vapor, or gas at a different pressure other than atmospheric pressure at the same elevation. More specifically in this instance, a pressure vessel is used to 'distill'/'crack' crude material taken from the ground (petroleum, etc.) and output a finer quality product that will eventually become gas,... more...
