An air receiver can be described as a pressure vessel that acts as a reservoir for receiving and storing a compressed gas, in order to maintain a constant supply. According to the B51 Code, it must be registered with the applicable Canadian Jurisdiction and have the CRN number stamped on its nameplate, if the design pressure is greater than 15 psi. Generally, it is registered as a Pressure Vessel under ASME VIII-1. If the volume is less than 1.5 cu-ft then it is registered as a fitting.
