How are Hyperbaric Chambers designed?

  1. Hyperbaric Chambers are designed in a ISO ASME /PVHO pressure vessel design shop.
  2. Chamber design begins with identifying the design requirements to be met.
  3. Chamber pressure vessel material is selected from the approved list of materials.
  4. Chamber weld types are selected to comply with both ASME and PVHO.
  5. Chamber pressure vessels are designed using Computer Aided Design CAD.
  6. Chamber pressure vessel designs are tested with Finite Element Analysis FEA.
  7. Fire Suppression Systems are calculated to meet requirements of NFPA 99.
  8. Compressors and Medical Air Storage is calculated to meet design requirements.
  9. Control Console and Interior is designed to meet CE / UL / PED requirements.
  10. Chamber finishes are selected to meet FDA 510K and  Bio Compatibility.
  11. Throughout the entire process, design revision control is maintained and documented.

How are Hyperbaric Chambers built?

  1. Hyperbaric Chambers are built in an ISO ASME / PVHO approved facility.
  2. Raw materials are inspected and tested to meet conformity.
  3. Components can be laser cut, machined, rolled, brake bent, welded, drilled, and tapped.
  4. Carbon steel components are media blasted then plated , painted, or powder coated.
  5. Stainless steel components are media blasted and polished.
  6. Aluminum components are media blasted , brushed, anodized, and dyed.
  7. Acrylic components are cast, machined, polished, and annealed.
  8. Rubber components are extruded and vulcanized.
  9. All welds are x-ray inspected using 100% ASME Radiographic Examination.
  10. All bearings and seals are lubricated with non-hydrocarbon food grade lubricant.
  11. Consoles and electronics are assembled in a clean EDS safe environment.

What approvals do Hyperbaric Chambers require?

  1. Chamber pressure vessels require ASME – American Society of Mechanical Engineers.
