About the Pressure Systems Group
The Pressure Systems Group is a community of key workers from many industries.
The group is vital to tackling issues ranging from ensuring safe, reliable and diverse supplies of energy to dealing with carbon capture. The group covers both simple and complex pressure systems made up of boilers, pressure vessels, heat-exchangers, piping, pumps and valves, under varying conditions of pressure, heat, and stress.
Key areas include design, manufacturing, materials, asset integrity and care, safety, legislation and codes, inspection, metallurgy, and stress analysis.
Oil and gas, nuclear and fossil power generation, chemicals, plastics, food and pharmaceuticals all depend on pressure systems for production; while hospitals, factories and homes rely on pipelines and heating boilers to maintain quality of life.
The aim of the Pressure Systems Group is to bring together key players from manufacturing, process, power engineering, research and regulation to discuss the latest advances and issues; to enable networking among different industry leaders; and to promote this growing field to all engineering professionals and the wider public.
