Pressure Vessels at Red River

Nothing matters like results, brought to you by Red River’s performance enhanced operation tailored to fit your needs. We operate in strict adherence to ASME standards, which are recognized globally for ensuring the quality and safety of pressure-containing devices. If you’re looking for custom pressure vessel fabrication, we are THE contract manufacture  to work with. We work closely with clients to produce pressure vessels tailored to specific requirements, at scale, serving a wide range of applications and industries.

The construction of these vessels is a process that involves several stages

Every pressure vessel that Red River produces is likely to start with a detailed design process. We use Compress by Codeware to run vessel calculations taking into account stress, environmental factors, materials, shape, size, thicknesses and other factors to determine the best options for intended application in the most cost efficient way. This step also includes selecting the best material choice for the application and performance of the vessel.

The actual manufacturing process involves cutting, shaping, and assembling the materials into the designed structure. This may include rolling steel plates into cylinders, welding sections together, and installing nozzles and other fittings. Red River’s fabrication process is carried out by skilled craftsman using state-of-the-art equipment and processes to ensure precision and quality.

Testing and inspection is performed throughout the manufacturing process as well as upon completion. Test methods, inspections and documentation is in accordance with ASME standards and specific requirements of the client. This includes non-destructive testing (NDT) methods like radiography or ultrasonic testing to check for material defects, as well as hydrostatic testing, where the vessel is filled with water and pressurized to check for leaks and to ensure it can handle its intended operating pressure.

After passing all inspections and tests, the pressure vessel is certified and registered with the NBBI or National Board of Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspectors, and receives an ASME stamp placard in accordance with the American Society of Mechanical Engineers which is a mark of quality and compliance. This certification is crucial for Red River’s clients, as it not only ensures the safety and reliability of the vessel but also is often a regulatory requirement for operation.

All pressure vessels receive a final checkoff before shipping and are then packaged and shipped to your location by our in house delivery trucks. By owning the shipping process we are able to ensure clients do not expect delays due to outsourced logistics.


With a rich history in prefabrication, Red River believes that any construction project can benefit from this approach. Prefabrication involves assembling the components of a project in a manufacturing environment and transporting complete assemblies or sub-assemblies to the construction site where the structure is to be located. This method offers numerous advantages, such as cost savings through reduced waste and more efficient use of materials, improved quality control, and reduced safety risks. Red River’s commitment to prefabrication demonstrates our innovative approach to deliver projects that are cost effective and higher quality.

reduced material waste icon Reduced Material Waste

A shop environment allows for precise measurement and cutting of materials, which minimizes waste. Bulk purchasing of materials can also reduce costs.

Labor Savings icon Labor Savings

Work in a shop setting can be streamlined and can occur simultaneously with site preparation, reducing the overall project timeline and labor costs.

Transportation and Handling icon Transportation and Handling

While transportation of large prefabricated sections can be costly, overall handling costs are often reduced due to the efficiency of the process.

  • Connsistent Conditions icon Consistency

    Manufacturing components in a controlled environment allows for consistent quality, unaffected by weather or other site-specific conditions.

  • Specialized Labor icon Specialized Labor

    Craftsman in a shop setting can become highly skilled in their specific tasks, leading to better craftsmanship.

Regulatory Compliance

It’s easier to ensure that prefabricated components comply with building codes and standards since prefabrication requires a more thorough planning and design process.

Reduced On-Site Risks icon Reduced On-Site Risks

With less time spent on site and less “hot work”, the risk of accidents and injuries can be significantly reduced. This can often reduce insurance premium rates for clients.

Controlled Environment icon Controlled Environment

In a shop setting, strict health and safety regulations, can be more easily attained than on a construction site leading to improved safety scores for clients.


Prefabrication can lead to more sustainable construction practices, as precise measurements and controlled conditions reduce waste.

Energy Efficiency Icon Energy Efficiency

Components can be designed to optimize energy performance, with better insulation and tighter seals than might be achievable on-site.

Parallel Processes icon Parallel Processes

Site work and building component production can occur simultaneously, speeding up the overall construction process.

Quick Assembly icon Quick Assembly

On-site assembly of prefabricated components is typically much faster than on-site construction, leading to shorter project times.

Design Flexibility icon Design Integrity

Through the use of BIM modeling technology, design conflicts and changes can be avoided.

Technological Integration icon Technological Integration

Prefabrication is well-suited to integrating smart technologies and advanced materials into the construction process.

Modular Solutions

We understand uptime is key, Red River manufactures modular solutions to meet exact client specifications and operational targets. Modular solutions involve creating entire sections of a plant or process system offsite and then transporting them to the final location for quick connection and integration. This approach can significantly reduce the time required for on-site construction, minimizing downtime and accelerating the time to market for many industrial operations. Red River’s capability to provide these tailored modular solutions showcases their commitment to efficiency and customer satisfaction.


Why Red River

We look for challenging projects that allow our team to continue learning and improving. We are involved in innovative solutions that have a huge impact on our society. We believe attitude is everything and we are committed to building lasting relationships that benefit communities everywhere.

Red River’s services in pressure vessel manufacturing, prefabrication, and modular solutions are underpinned by a commitment to quality, safety, and innovation. We serve industries that demand the highest standards and seek to establish partnerships that lead to lasting benefits for all stakeholders involved.
