  • Introduction To Unfired Pressure Vessels

    Under the Factories and Machinery Act 1967, each unfired pressure vessel must have a valid certificate of fitness (CF) before it can be operated. For this purpose, approval for the design of the unfired pressure vessel has to be obtained in advance from the Department of Occupational Safety and Health (DOSH) before it fabricated, installed or used.

    Application for approval of the design may be made by the manufacturing company, installer, supplier or owner of the unfired pressure vessel. Local manufacturers of unfired pressure vessels must register as a manufacturer with the department.

    The following are several examples of unfired pressure vessels that require design approval:
    • Air container
    • Steriliser
    • LPG storage tank
    • Heat Exchanger
    • Pressure vessels at the petrochemical plants etc

    Information to be submitted for approval of the design of unfired pressure vessels:

    icon Application for Unfired Pressure Vessel Design Approval (Import, IDxDP equal or less than 3000psig-in)

  • Introduction To Steam Boilers

    Under the Factories and Machinery Act 1967, each steam boiler to be manufactured or brought into this country needs a valid certificate of fitness (CF) before it may be used. Therefore, approval of the steam boiler design needs to be obtained in advance from the Department of Occupational Safety and Health (DOSH) before it can be manufactured, installed or used.

    Application may be made by the manufacturing company, installer, supplier or owner of the steam boiler. Local boiler manufacturers need to register as a manufacturer with the department

    The following are several examples of steam boilers that must be registered:

     1.     Water tube steam boiler
     2.     Fire tube steam boiler
     3.     Electric steam boiler
     4.     Waste heat recovery boiler

    Equipment such as the thermal oil heater and hot water boiler too need to be registered although they do not produce steam.

    The following is the information needed for approval of the steam boiler design:
