Horizontal apparatus with elliptical bottoms and tube bundle (GEE)

Description

The horizontal apparatus GEE with a tube bundle are designed for aboveground storage of oil products and gaseous fluids at a pressure of 0.6 MPa. At the same time, the density of the stored liquid or gas should not exceed 2000 kg/m3.

The Saratov Reservoir Plant manufactures apparatus GEE with a tube bundle of different steel grade and different volume, depending on the operating conditions and at the Customer's request.

Seismicity of the worksite should not exceed 7 points.

The ambient temperature is within the temperature range from -60°C to + 300°C. The choice of steel grade depends on the operating temperature.

Manufacture and construction of horizontal vessels with elliptical bottoms and tube bundle

Apparatus GEE with tube bundle are a horizontal all-welded housing with elliptical bottoms and a tube bundle installed inside the heat exchanger, which is designed to heat or cool the stored liquid in production needs. Heating or cooling of the internal space can be permanent or periodic.

There are fittings for the equipment installation and a hatch for inspection and repair of the internal surface, as well as for the execution of technological operations (loading-unloading, maintenance, etc.).

To access the top hatch, a ladder and an observation platform with or without a hedge can be provided.

Our plant produces GEE vessels with a tube bundle of 6.3 m3, 10 m3, 16 m3, 25 m3, 40 m3, 50 m3 and 63 m3. The diameter of shells is from 1.6 m to 2.8 m.

While designing and manufacturing, corrections can be made to the series design, for example, improvement of the design itself, changes in parts, assembly units, etc.

The Saratov Reservoir Plant has the necessary Certificates of Conformity for the production of Vessels for various purposes.

Installation of horizontal apparatus with elliptical bottoms and tube bundle

When installing, no direct contact between the shell and the ground surface is allowed.

This type of vessels is mounted aboveground only on different types of metal supports (leg supports, saddle supports or lug supports), depending on the operational requirements and at the Customer's request.
