Pressure vessels are multipurpose containers utilized for the purpose of holding liquids or gases that must be regulated at a specific level of pressure. Since the device may be used for varying types of elements and materials, pressure vessel expert witnesses may be experienced with several different areas of focus, making it very important that the selected expert match the particular details of your specific case.
Pressure vessel expert witnesses may be experienced with mechanical engineering, civil engineering, piping, metallurgy, welding engineering, fire origin and cause, materials engineering, liquid petroleum, chemistry, and other related areas. Since they contain what can be potentially hazardous materials, industrial safety is an especially important factor when utilizing pressure vessels. Any issues with quality control revealed during mechanical inspections or a structural analysis should be immediately addressed, as such problems may lead to an industrial accident involving combustion and flammability, as well as the release of hazardous materials into the surrounding air. Codes and compliance must therefore be adhered to by industries when using pressure vessels, as a violation in rules and regulations may lead to injuries and health concerns, as well as potential lawsuits.
As with any type of accident, industrial or otherwise, pressure vessel expert witnesses may be called upon to conduct inspection and investigation. They might be asked to provide an expert report to offer their expert opinion regarding the source of the issue.
