O’Donnell Consulting was asked to perform a design analysis of a high temperature pressure vessel used in the manufacturing of glass fibers.
The process involves impure molten glass at high temperature entering an inlet header, flowing into the vessel, then discharged into an outlet header and fed to the glass fiber making process downstream at operating pressure. The pressure vessel operates at 1,900 F thus creep rupture, creep ratcheting and creep fatigue damage were major concerns concerning the life of the vessel. ASME Code Procedures were used in the analysis.
