A pressure system contains a fluid or gas under pressure and they support a wide range of processes found in nuclear facilities. Pressure systems can incorporate a wide range of equipment from small air receivers to reactor pressure vessels and primary circuit equipment, which is often subject to very high pressures and temperatures.

Components that make up the pressure boundary within nuclear facilities, normally include pipes, vessels, heat exchangers/steam generators, pumps and valves. They typically have heightened requirements and separate standards that define both how they are designed and manufactured.

Our work on pressure boundaries and pressurized equipment includes being involved in the development of pressure boundary codes and standards. This gives our subject matter experts detailed and current knowledge, which enables us to design, build, specify and procure, pressure boundary equipment with confidence.
