The passport for pressure vessels contains, as the most important document, details on the intended use, assembly, commissioning, use and maintenance and if necessary on the improper use of pressure vessels, pressure equipment and pressure pipes. The hazard of pressure vessels originates from the stored energy in the pressurized medium. This energy arises as a result of volume change work, which depends on the fluid properties, the volume of the vessel and the pressure. As most accidents occur due to improper use, a passport for pressure vessels shall be issued in order to prevent accidents and ensure safety.
