      Hanson Tank (Roy E. Hanson Jr. Mfg.)

      is a major U.S. manufacturer of carbon and stainless

      steel pressure vessels built to the ASME Boiler and

      Pressure Vessel Code, Sect VIII, Div I and HLW. Founded

      in 1932 the company manufactures and ships over 15,000

      pressure vessels, with a value of over ten million

      dollars, annually to destinations all over the



      The ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code is recognized

      world wide. However, we also have the capability to

      build vessels to the requirements of the US Coastguard,

      American Bureau of Shipping, Lloyd’s of London, Det

      Norske Veritas and other jurisdictions. Many purchasers

      of non-pressure tanks also specify ASME Code

      construction in order to take advantage of the strict

      quality controls that the ASME demands. All Hanson

      tanks, even non-code, are build to Code standards and

      are pressure tested before shipment.


      Air Receivers: Hanson pressure vessels include many

      variations of custom standard


      receivers and many air tanks in

      If you are in the market for one or one hundred carbon

      or stainless steel pressure vessels from 15# to 3000#

      design working pressure in many diameters, call us, fax

      us , or e-mail

      us your needs for a prompt, courteous quotation.


      We manufacture our own carbon and stainless steel tank heads from

      12″ to


      ten feet in diameter, and keep hundreds in stock to

      ensure the fastest possible deliveries on finished vessels. We even

      supply tank heads to other tank fabricators on a

      regular basis.


      If necessary, our tanks can be lined or coated with any

      of the excellent products available today. Epoxy, glass and cement are the most common, but rubber,

      vinyl and baked phenolics are amongst many others that

      are available. Fiberglass with metal jacket or economical

      and effective R-16 polyurethane sprayed-on foam

      insulation are also offered.


      Virtually all the steel we utilize is purchased in bulk

      direct from domestic mills, and our huge inventory of

      raw materials ensures our customers the fastest

      possible delivery at realistic prices. We also have

      special arrangements with many major truck lines that

      mean that our top quality vessels can be delivered to

      your facility for far less than you would imagine.


      The US Army, Air Force and Marines all have Hanson

      tanks in facilities throughout the nation and the

      world, and our pressure vessels were right there in the

      Desert Storm campaign, hoisting antennas and inflating

      aircraft tires among other less visible, albeit

      essential duties.


      The list of Hanson Tank customers includes many major

      corporations, who demand the highest engineering

      standards. They include Boeing, Chevron, Coors, Disney,

      Dow Chemical, Ford, Fluor, GE, GM, GTE,

      Hewlett-Packard, Hughes, Hyundai, Ingersoll-Rand,

      Lucasfilm, Mobil, NASA, Nike, Shell, Technicolor,

      Universal Studios, Unocal, Warner Bros. to name a


      How do you test whether a large

      space rocket can be launched out of the back of a cargo

      plane? If your idea doesn’t work, you’ve lost a very

      expensive rocket and possibly a cargo plane and its

      crew too.

      Answer: You have Hanson Tank build a full size replica

      of your space rocket to test the idea. So that it’s the

      same weight as a real one, you include several internal

      water ballast tanks that can also be used to distribute

      the weight precisely. So that you can run the test more

      than once, you also invest in some very large

      parachutes. But just in case, you also order another

      one as a spare.

      These pictures are of the first one in our shop and later

      leaving on our truck on its way to

      have the nosecone and dummy rocket engine


  • A similar but unrelated test project was

    when the load capacity of the Chinook helicopter was

    being verified for an export order for 14 units worth

    $1.64bn from the British Royal Air Force. For this, we

    manufactured a water ballast tank with several internal

    compartments. This enabled the engineers to simulate

    operating conditions and test different weight

    distributions. It also might have been useful if they

    happened to encounter a brush fire during flight
