Pressure vessels

Pressure equipment with maximum allowable operating pressures above 0.5 bar pressure has been subject to the EU directive 97/23/EC since 2002 and to the successor directive 2014/68/EU, the so-called Pressure Equipment Directive (PED), since 2016.

Pressure vessels, but also pipelines, steam boilers and pressure-retaining equipment (valves, filters) are referred to as pressure equipment and must be divided into categories according to their hazard potential. The manufacturer may choose from various verification procedures such as type examination, quality assurance system or individual testing in order to meet the requirements of the Pressure Equipment Directive.
