The article discusses the pressure vessel, a closed container whose purpose is to support gases or liquids at a pressure different from the ambient pressure. The pressure vessels are devised to work at a specific pressure and temperature in the industrial sector. It explains the various kinds of pressure vessels. It outlines several industries where pressure vessels can be applied.
