Wire Wound High Pressure Vessels for Industrial Applications
Wire wound high pressure vessels have been used in various industrial applications, the most frequent of these being isostatic pressing and hydrostatic extrusion. Isostatic pressing is generally performed either cold, at room temperature, with liquid as the pressure medium, or hot, at temperatures of 1100 to 1800°C with gas as the pressure medium. In hot isostatic presses the vessel wall is separated from the hot space by insulation, which keeps the vessel wall operating at a low temperature of approximately 50 to 80°C. Cold pressing is used for regular production at pressures up to 600 MPa, hot pressing at pressures up to 200 MPa. Hydrostatic extrusion is generally performed either cold, at room temperature, or warm, at temperatures up to 600°C, in both cases with liquid as the pressure medium. Hydrostatic extrusion is used for regular production at pressures up to 1400 MPa.
