Dished end manufacturing is a niche business within the fabricating industry but the call for the use of dished ends is numerous. Dished ends are the end caps welded to the main body of a pressure vessel. They are produced using a variety of production methods depending on the type of dished end required which will also need to reflect the characteristics of the end product. The cap starts off as a flat disc with the material being a suitable grade for the application required. The most common materials used are carbon steel and stainless steel but depending on the requirement, exotic materials and aluminium are used.
The Dished End Company can produce all types of ends. They can be manufactured from a number of steel types including pressure vessel and boiler quality, chrome moly and stainless steel. The company also offers 2:1 semi ellipsodial, hemispherical petals, torispherical ends as well as conical knuckled sections.
