Over 30 years’ worth of experience in the design of pressure vessels covering all shapes and sizes!

JM Dixon Associates Ltd Design & Consulting Engineers offer full design and draughting solutions for a vast array of pressure vessel types and applications in accordance with all major design codes and directives. Over the years we have established a long and loyal client list ranging from small independent fabricators to large multinational companies; providing services for a wide variety of industries such as chemical, pharmaceutical, oil and gas, offshore, nuclear, hygienic, food and beverage.

We have built up an extensive knowledge of the major pressure vessel design codes; PD5500, ASME VIII Division 1 and EN13445 and have the ability to supplement these where necessary with individual company and industry specifications and requirements.

At JM Dixon Associates Ltd we have developed a comprehensive library of ‘in-house’ calculation programmes which are maintained through our ISO 9001 quality system and are familiar to all the main 3rd party insurance companies including British Engineering Services (RSA), Zurich, DNV, ABS and many others. Our design programmes enable us to deal with a broad range of standard and non-standard vessel designs, however where appropriate; we also possess the capability to provide verification through Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and the design by analysis approach.
