Pressure Systems Engineering


Engineering pressure systems is one of our specialities here at DOCAN. We can offer a range of services in the design, engineering and analysis of pressure systems and related components.


Our skills and capabilities

As an established engineering consultancy, DOCAN have worked on a wide range of projects spanning a multitude of applications within pressure systems, including traditional pressure vessels and piping applications.

We can assist in all aspects of your project from concept through to completion. If you’re starting from the ground up, we can offer our expertise in pressure system design with our extensive knowledge of all major design codes, ensuring an efficient system which is compliant with all safety regulations.

For existing pressure systems or piping networks that aren’t performing as they should be, our highly skilled engineers can perform a series of in-depth analyses and evaluations including FFS assessments to identify problems and devise a viable solution.

Our approach to engineering pressure systems

DOCAN have many years of experience in the design and verification of both standard and non-standard pressure system designs. We utilise a combination of extensive in-house knowledge, manual calculations and cutting-edge software such as CAESAR II and PV Elite to design pressure systems to any specification.

Our design and analysis process is thorough yet efficient. Through in-depth structural analysis and accurate 3D modelling, we can produce detailed manufacturing drawings of structurally sound pressure vessels, tested against various loads.

Drawing on our expertise in Finite Element Analysis, Pipe Stress Analysis and similar methods, we can solve the most complex engineering problems involved in the design and manufacture of pressure systems.
