Limpet Coil Reactor Vessels
GFSA designs and manufactures limpet coil reactor vessels for the chemical and process industries. These vessels are used to regulate the temperature of reactants and control chemical reactions with the help of heating or cooling media circulated through coils surrounding the main pressure vessel.
A limpet coil is manufactured by first splitting a pipe and forming it into coil sections that are wrapped around the exterior of a pressure vessel. The coil is then welded into place using full penetration welds.
Limpet coils manufactured by GFSA tend to be provided in stainless steel and the design is always fully in accordance with the relevant vessel code. Once welded the coil is DPI tested prior to full hydro-testing.
