Just as the design of a regular pressure vessel is critical, so is that of a vacuum tank or vacuum vessel.. Or else …

Not one of ours – and not designed or intended for vacuum anyway but a handy reminder of what happens when not designed as a vacuum receiver !

We use the same principles to Abbott vacuum receiver design and vacuum tank design as we do per pressure vessels to avoid just this.

Vacuum vessels store an amount of vacuum for use in a vast array of
different purposes including:
Food Packaging (removing oxygen to stop it rotting too soon)
Refrigeration plant, handling flat things (think vacuum pads on sheets of
glass)
Medical applications (try not to think liposuction ….or dentist)
Light bulb manufacture,
Solar tube manufacture,
Semiconductors,
Flat screen TV’s etc
.
The size of vacuum vessel or vacuum receiver depends upon the amount of
volume of vacuum that needs creating, and how often and how much of a vacuum
is required.
Out of interest (well probably not that interesting) a ‘vacuum cleaner’
actually reduces air pressure by only about 20%, and outer space has a much
better vacuum than we can create on earth even under perfect scientific
conditions.

Vacuum Vessels and Vacuum Receivers we manufacture are, to all intents and
purposes, much the same as an Air Receiver but calculated to cope with a negative pressure.
Whilst the governance of vacuum tanks and vacuum receivers is much more relaxed than vessel it doesn’t mean its not a bit of a problem (or perhaps even catastrophic) when one implodes.
