ASME Div.2 Reactor Ships


The over 675 ton ASME Reactor has been loaded onto the CEBX-800 Schnabel Rail Car for shipment to the USA.

The ASME "U2" Code Stamped Reactor was fabricated for an internal design pressure of over 1300 PSI @ 850° F and was hydro tested at over 2000 PSI. Fabrication of this pressure vessel required the use of 15 separate welding procedures from Hooper Welding’s extensive list of over 200.The operating nature of this vessel required 1/8” thick 347 stainless steel weld overlay to be welded to the internal surface of both heads and 14 shell courses. The high pressure requirements of the Reactor required a custom 55” OD x 30” ID (7 ½” wall) flange to be sourced and welded to the pressure vessel.

This large reactor took nearly 3 years to complete from start to finish.
