Test/pressure vessels

Vessels for energy transmission

As the NW 400 sight glasses required for the vessel were not standard, an exceptional 3.2 inspection needed to be carried out for them. FMS created a suitable testing fixture for this inspection and then successfully carried out a type examination together with the Technical Inspection Association (TÜV).
