Our approach

As an engineering consultancy, DOCAN have unrivalled experience spanning a multitude of industries which require pressure vessels for various purposes. We are well-versed in the design and verification of all types of pressure vessels and can conduct third-party reviews and analyses of existing vessels.

We use cutting-edge software such as PV Elite to ensure all pressure vessels meet the requirements of the design code according to your specifications. Using the Finite Element Analysis method, we can analyse and evaluate any pressure vessel or related equipment to ensure it meets all requirements under specific load conditions. We also employ Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) where is it necessary to understand fluid flow or process conditions within the system.
