Recent inspections of pressurised bulk tankers after twelve months service have found significant internal cracking in welded areas that could propagate into major defects and cause a pressure vessel failure. Areas of concern include shedder plating, discharge piping and internal stiffeners.
If your inspections identify any of the issues outlined above then you should contact the designer, manufacturer, importer or local supplier of the plant in relation to appropriate methods for correcting the defects. You can also refer to AS/NZS 3788:2006 – Pressure Equipment In-service Inspection.
