Pressure Vessels

Himalaya’s Linear Guided Plate Bending (Rolling) Machines deliver excellent performance, flexibility and adaptability for the manufacturing of pressure vessels.

Industry Value Chain

The global pressure vessels market size was estimated at USD 166.7 billion in 2019 and is expected to register a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.2% from 2020 to 2027. This growth can be attributed to the significant growth of the chemical & petrochemical industry along with growing adoption of supercritical power generation technology. The growth is further driven by the requirements in various end-user industries and advancement in the technologies of the industrial equipment in developing economies.

Pressure vessels are constructed using various materials, such as steel, steel alloys, nickel, nickel alloys, titanium, tantalum, aluminum, and zirconium. Thus, the market is highly dependent on the availability of these materials. These materials are obtained via mining and henceforth, any significant changes in mining industry are expected to directly impact the pressure vessels market.

Pressure Vessels

A variety of materials, coupled with complex designs, applications and industries makes the pressure vessels fabrication an extremely complicated process. It involves the controlled cutting, bending, welding and assembling processes of metals for vessel fabrication. Aside from that, there are several safety requirements that must be adhered.

Himalaya’s Three Roll or Four Roll Linear Guided Plate Bending (Rolling) Machines deliver excellent performance, flexibility and adaptability at much lower costs. Our machines have been a first choice of fabricators for 40+ years. Our advanced engineering coupled with our vast experience and expertise of designing world-class machines has enabled us to deliver efficient and precise solutions.

Why Himalaya?

  • Himalaya plate bending machines deliver high productivity and extreme precision critical for the manufacturing of varied pressure vessel designs.

  • Himalaya machines have a robust steel structure made from heavy metal plates, connected to each other by a strong box design chassis with interlocking frames & strengthening ribs. These allow for parallelism of all axes and precise surfaces, as well as longevity and precision.

  • We design the rolls with optimal diameter and use forged carbon steel rolls machined by high precision CNC lathes. Our rolls have a special spline-based design that is extremely efficient in connecting the rolls with the planetary gear system. Our rolls are also crowned to compensate for roll deflection during the bending process.

  • Our machines are equipped with a hydraulic system which can work at less than full capacity when jobs less than maximum thickness are rolled. Twin speed operation also reduces the energy consumption up to 50% at slower speeds.

  • Himalaya Planetary driving system used in our machines is efficient and eliminates energy wastage associated with heavy-transmission systems and yet achieves the goal of speed reduction by increasing the stages in gears and pinions.

  • The simple yet robust design of our machines also enables ease of operations and faster manufacturing. And our full package of accessories provides quick movement of rolled plates for rolling, welding, and subsequent manufacturing activities. The high construction quality of our machines means that they can work 24 hours a day and are highly reliable with minimum downtime.

The HIMALAYA Advantage

Himalaya_Newest (5).jpg
  • What is done to compensate for deflection of rolls during pre-bending and rolling?
    All rolls are crowned (cambering) for compensating deflection.
  • What is the arrangement provided for balancing of top roll when swing arm is opened?
    Top roll is counter balanced automatically once the drop end is opened without any jacks or manual arrangement.
  • Is there any method to know the position of bottom rolls?
    DRO (Digital Readout) is housed on the operating console which gives the position of the bottom rolls with respect to the top roll.
  • What is the capacity for cone bending?
    Cones can be bent up to the edge-bending capacity of the machine. The bottom rolls can be inclined for the required cone angle.
  • What is the level of protection for electrical components?
    Some of the electrical bough outs are IP 55 like motors, switchgears etc. The electrical cabinet will be manufactured as per our standard practices and will meet IP 55 protection.
  • Is the main drive reversible?
    Forward and reverse to the main drive is provided. The bottom rolls can be moved up and down individually.
  • What is the type of oil required?
    Hydraulic oil – Enklo 68 Planetary Gear box – EP 90
  • Where are the main machine controls?
    Operating console houses push buttons for all the operations of the machine. The console is movable so that the operator can keep it at any desired location.
  • Can we bend hot plates on the machine to get higher thickness capacity?
    Although the standard machine is not meant for hot rolling, occasional hot rolling can be done (a few jobs per month) provided that suitable precautions are taken.
  • Some plates have high yield point (YP). The rolling capacities are rated for 26Kg/mm2. How to find the equivalent thickness?
    Divide the Actual YP by 26. Find square root of this number. Multiply this value by actual plate thickness to get effective thickness.
Enjoy the peace of mind that you are in good hands.
