The diversity of products in today’s market is so wide that each specialized industry demands different components, equipment, machinery, or containers for the storage of different liquids or gases. Most must comply with certain characteristics, specifications, and certifications so that they can store different pressure fluids, such as carbon dioxide (CO2).

Here are some general specifications for different types of tanks:

Vacuum Insulated CO2 Storage Tanks.

  • They are widely used by different industries such as automotive, food and beverages, water treatment, and oil and gas. This is because carbon dioxide is a source of cold that can be used for processes such as tissue preservation by means of freezing and extinguishing fire, as it is not flammable.

    Isolated vacuum tanks are manufactured in capacities of 6, 14, 30, 50, 75 tons of CO2 (vertical type).

General characteristics of these tanks:

  • Internal tank designed according to ASME code section VIII, Div.1, last edition, stamping “U”.
  • External tank designed according to CGA-341, last edition (non-stamped tank).
  • Inner tank: coal steel, standard SA-612, 100% x-ray.
  • Internal pipe: Stainless steel Type 304.
  • Outdoor tank: SA SA-36.
  • Supports: Steel SA SA-36.
  • Lifting lugs: coal steel, SA-36.
  • Exterior pipe: Stainless steel Type 304.
  • Valves: stainless steel.

Horizontal CO2 tanks isolated with polyurethane.

  • CO2 tanks isolated with polyurethane can be manufactured at 100, 200, 300 and up to 500 tons with stainless steel sheet or white wash aluminum and isolated with a polyurethane system screened with the following characteristics:
  • Designed and manufactured according to ASME code, section VIII, Div. 1 or Div. 2, Class 2, 300 psi, minimum design temperature: -30 ° F, RX: 100%, corrosion factor (body and heads) 0.0625″ when required, standardized body and head SA-612 material.
  • Internal finish: cleaned according to client standards with the option of inerting nitrogen.
