**Optimum
Dimensions of a Vessel **

**Important Notices:**- This procedure calculates the optimum dimensions of a cylinderical
pressure vessel with a known volume. The following restrictions apply:
- Minimum design pressure is 50 PSIG. Input values less than the minimum will be reset by the server.
- Minimum valid calculated diameter is 2 ft (0.6 m). Vessels smaller than this minimum are usually fabricated from standard piping. The procedure will not reset the calculated diameter if it falls below this limit.
- Maximum valid calculated length is 60 ft (20 m). The procedure will not reset the calculated length if it is above this limit.
- Material of construction is carbon steel.

- A more comprehensive and powerful version of this procedure is available
**online**through the clients gateway (password required). The full version of this procedure is part of our Process Designer® line of intelligent software.
