Design a horizontal pressure vessel
Project : Design a horizontal pressure vessel
Horizontal cylinder with two standard elliptical head, double saddle support, two M36 bolts are used for each
saddle, as shown in Figure 1. The inlet nozzle (Φ108 ) is on the top of cylinder at 3/L location, and the
outlet nozzle (Φ108 ) is at the bottom of cylinder at 2/L location.
