New Brochure Update: Large ASME Tanks and Vessels


Highlighted in Apache’s new ASME Large Tank brochure are our capabilities and services, including:

Passivation: Passivation is recommended as a final cleaning finish after all fabrication operations such as forming, welding, machine and mechanical polishing have been completed. Apache can passivate tanks and vessels of any size. Federal spec. ASTM A380 & A967

Electropolishing: Electropolishing is specified as a finish in many pharmaceutical, health and biotechnology industry tanks. Stainless material is immersed in an electrolyte bath subject to electrical current. Surface contamination is dissolved resulting in a mirror-like, extremely smooth finish. Federal spec. ASTM B912.

Robotic and Mechanical Polishing: Apache has the equipment to finish the vessel interior and exterior to required RA values.

FAT (Factory Acceptance Testing): The large tank team and our quality assurance technicians are available for customer inspection of the tank or vessel and can verify components including controls, mixing and agitation as well as compliance requirements.

TOP Packages: Apache provides full TOP Documentation for your vessel project, including hyperlinked Table of Contents and Bookmarks. Large file size TOP Packages are sent via FTP service.

Visit Apache at Interphex Booth 3942, Javits Center, NY

 

Apache's large tank and small vessel team will exhibit at Interphex 2017 - booth 3942.  Interphex is a large pharmaceutical and biotechnology trade show and conference event.  The Parenteral Drug Association (PDA) sponsors this long running expo.  The show focuses on technology, innovation and education to include all product development cycles. It is held in New York City with 10,000 professionals and 600 vendors in attendance.

 

Mike Peterson will be at the show representing the large tank group. Mike has served the pharmaceutical and bio-pharma industry form 20 years in technical sales and customer service of ASME vessels and tanks.

 

David Foulkes will also be at Apache's booth representing the small portable vessel group.  David has supported the sales of both standard and custom sanitary design vessels for 30 years.  The core of vessels manufactured in the small vessel group is for biotechnology and pharmaceutical applications.

 

From precise quality control to documentation requirements, Apache is committed to bio-pharma processors to help with their processing and manufacturing goals. We manufacture our own components including dimple sheet or half pipe exchange surfaces, man ways, flanged and dished heads, leaders, platforms, support structures and custom vessel internals.  Apache offers in-house polishing, passivation, electropolishing, riboflavin and saline testing.
