I do need someone to help me find the PSI of my tank, pls tell me if its possible.
Plumber: Billy, Mechanical Contractor replied 2 years ago

I looked at your question...temp regarding pressure is obviously easy to find out. The issue of course is finding whether the vessel can handle that.

The unknown in this case is the welds. Is the unit welded at all corners?

Is the unit bent into shape with minimal welds?

Type of welds and materials?

We would need more info, or you would have to physically test units with pressure.

The welds will be in the on 2 sides of the tanks in the direction of 15 meters. The material is SS 316 grade material. The thickness is 3mm
