LPG Sphere Tanks We manufacture LPG Spherical Storage Tanks (Horton spheres) of diameter ranging from 10000 mm to 22000 mm & thickness upto 72mm, as well as Refrigerated spheres for Butadiene & Ammonia storage. The spheres are designed as per
Spherical tanks can be built in different sizes and the most common one is the tank with the ratio of 5000 m³ volume/cost. According to geometry, virtually manufacturing of tanks in any size might be possibel but the increase in thickness caused in regard to that, limits the volumes of tanks. LPG Storage Bullet Tanks vs. LPG Storage Spheres The first spherical LPG pressure vessels or Hortonspheres, as they are also known, were built by the Chicago Bridge & Iron Company (CBI) in 1923. With their unique, entirely rounded profile, Hortonspheres allow for efficient, large volume storage of compressed gases in a liquid stage.
The reason why LPG is stored in spherical tank is liquid form gas is to be highly pressurized in order to keep it in liquid form.This is done effectively in sphere shaped tanks. As spherical shape is uniform pressure gets equally distributed. Also being no edges there LPG spherical tank - level, pressure VEGALPG tanks are usually only accessible for service and maintenance work every few years during shut-down periods. In addition, the containers are mostly installed underground or covered with earth. The solution is a process independent measuring system that delivers safe and reliable readings despite low dielectric constants and low temperatures.
