A university workgroup required a large aperture ASME flange equipped window for analysis prior to project commercialization. In addition, Canada has some of the most stringent pressure vessel regulations in the world and approval for a CRN (Canadian Registration #) is awarded after technical submissions are reviewed a provincial reviewing body. This unique challenge presented a complex mix of regulatory and engineering hurdles needed to satisfy a demanding petrochemical application.
The knowledge of specialty glass to metal sealing was the key component of this successful project delivery. A modified, ASME B31.2 compliant Rayotek flange configuration sealed to a custom designed window allowed for the combination of large clear aperture, high temperature and high pressure (relative to aperture size) to meet client requirements.
