Pressure Vessels CE Directive

White paper

A pressure vessel is a housing designed to contain fluids under a higher pressure than that of the surrounding atmosphere. Keeping fluids under high pressure has an element of risk in that it could be potentially hazardous if the energy stored inside is suddenly released.

This stored energy, together with the nature of the stored fluid, determines the hazard level of pressure vessels. In order to guarantee the safety of THIELMANN pressure vessels, they are designed, manufactured and tested according to the demanding regulations and standards of each region. In Europe, the requirements are compiled in the Directive 2014/68/EU on pressure equipment (PED), which fully entered into force on 20 July 2016.
