Name Plate, Vessel Supports and

Openings

What are name plates and why are they so


important?
Name plates are permanent fixtures of the
pressure vessels. They must be stamped
into the vessel and or fastened permanently
to the pressure vessel. They cannot be
attached to a control panel or to a saddle
support or casing.
