Once PVHO systems are installed and put in operation, there are a great deal of safety guidelines for the maintenance, inspection and handling of the systems, pressure vessels and windows. ASME PVHO-2 is the standard reference for Users and Operators for servicing guidelines. It provides guidance on maintenance schedules, inspections and life evaluation of acrylic windows. It also provides all the necessary forms to integrate in the Owner’s Maintenance Plan for each system. If you operate, maintain or own a PVHO chamber or system, this is a Top Priority document to have in hand and judiciously follow its recommendations.
