Dish Ends Calculator is used for Calculations of Pressure Vessels Heads Blank Diameter, Crown Radius, Knuckle Radius, Height and Weight of all types of pressure vessel heads such as Torispherical Head, Ellipsoidal Head and Hemispherical head.
Dish Ends Calculator is designed for Flat Head, 10% Torispherical Head, 2:1 Ellipsoidal Head, and Hemispherical Head. It is also applicable for Pressure Vessel End Caps, Dish Ends, Formed Heads and End Closure, etc.
Inside Diameter of the Dish End is required for Blank Diameter Calculations. It is Denoted By ID in this calculator. This diameter is nothing but the shell inside diameter. Inside diameter is given in dish dimensions, if it’s not given then you can calculate the inside diameter by subtracting two thicknesses from the outside diameter. This calculator needs input in metric or mm.
Radius R is required to give input while calculating Flat Head Blank Diameter Calculations. it is the corner Radius of the Flat dish. These dimensions need to provide in mm. These dimensions are available in a Flat dish drawing. Please Study the drawing before entering the Inputs.
Crown Radius is the Radius of a large curve section of the dish ends. Crown radius is mostly applicable for Torispherical and Ellipsoidal Dish Ends. You don’t require to give this dimension as input it is calculated by this calculator. You can find this crown radius in the result section.
Knuckle Radius is the radius of the smaller curve section of the dish ends. This Radius is applicable mostly in Torispherical and Ellipsoidal Dish Ends. You don’t require to give this dimension as input it is calculated by this calculator. You can find this Knuckle radius in the result section of the Torispherical and Ellipsoidal Dish Ends.
Straight Face is Straight Section Height Provided in every Dish Ends to match with shell. This Length is given in the drawing. This Dimension is required to give as input for Dish Ends Blank Calculations. It is Denoted By SF in this calculator. This Dimension is applicable for every Dish ends.
Dish Ends Height is given in the drawing. It does not require in input. It is calculated by the calculator. Dish Ends Height is Different for every dish type. Dish Ends Height is calculated in this calculator is of two types that is Height with Straight Face and Height Without Straight Face.
Dish thickness is the thickness of the blade. It is denoted by T. It does not play any role in Dish Ends Calculation or Blank Plate size calculation But it required for the calculation of Weight Dish Ends. It required to enter in mm.
Material Specific Gravity is value is does not required in Dish Ends calculation but it is required to calculate the weight of the Dish ends or pressure vessel heads. You do not require to remember this value is because we have provided a list of standard material if you select material from this list it will automatically pick the value of material specific gravity value. If your Material is other than this list then only you required to enter the value for weight calculation if you don’t want to weight then you can enter zero in this field.
All the above terms are shown in the Standard image shown in the Input section. Please read the input data image for understanding input dimension notations and then input size carefully to get accurate layouting.
In this Dish Ends Calculator, we have the following Types of Options are available.

Dish Ends Calculator helps to Calculate all Data related to all types of Dish Ends or Pressure Vessel Heads. These Dish Ends are most widely used in Process Equipment Fabrication, Pressure Vessel Fabrications, other Fabrication Industry.
It is useful for Fabrication Engineer for Getting All Term related to Pressure Vessels End Caps, Pressure Vessel Heads or Pressure Vessels Dish Ends.
In this Calculator use can also Calculates Weight of Dish Ends for Different Types of Materials. Some of the materials are Carbon steel, Stainless Steel, Aluminium, brass , bronze, Copper, Lead etc. materials.
Blank Diameter calculated by This Tool is useful for Estimation and costing purpose. So that while Cutting Blank size of the above Dish End please consult with your head manufacture for desired Accuracy.
