Tanks/Vessels

Equpiment Applications - Tanks & Vessels

VESSELS, such as reactor vessels or vertical tanks, used for processing chemicals and pharmaceuticals are often equipped with jackets, or hollow shells, surrounding the chamber. Thorough this jacket a heat transfer medium is circulated, providing heat (or cooling) to the materials within. Proper design of a thermal fluid or HEAT system will allow very precise temperature control of the process.

Single wall TANKS are used throughout industry for processing and storage of many types of materials. By installing heat transfer coils inside a tank, materials can be heated, maintained at a specific temperature, or even melted, inside a tank for a specific process.

Applications

Tanks and Vessels are used for processing and storing various materials including liquids, semi-solids, and complete solids.

CRITICAL DATA

Properly designing a HEAT system for vessels and tanks requires the following information.

  • Jacket or coil detail; the pump must be sized base on design of the flow paths
  • Detailed drawing of tank is very helpful
  • The quantity and size of connection ports will help determine maximum flow capacity

The size of the heater is based on the volume of the tank or vessel and the heat-up time required.

Types of Tanks/Vessels
  • Jacketed Tanks
  • Reactor Vessels
  • Thin Film Evaporator
  • Distillation Column
  • Storage Tanks
  • Barges 

The heat systems below provide indirect temperature control of various types of tanks & vessels.
