Vertical apparatus with conic bottoms (VKK)
Vertical apparatus with conic bottoms VKK are used in oil and gas, chemical or food industries for receiving, storing and dispensing liquid operational product. The product is stored at a pressure of up to 0.7 MPa. Product is dispensed by gravity flow.
Construction of Vertical bulk capacity vessels with conic bottoms
It’s an apparatus with all-welded vertical cylindrical body and conic bottoms and hatch cover.
There are technological hatches and openings for installing equipment, filling and draining the liquid and input/output of steam and condensate on the shell.
Technological equipment is selected according to the individual order, depending on the purpose and operating conditions. At the Customer's request, the equipment may include detectors of the upper and lower levels, temperature, pressure detectors, etc.
Shells and bottoms can be thermally insulated, and a heat exchanger can be installed inside to maintain the operating temperature.
Thermal insulation can be made of rock wool board and protective cover, as well as polyurethane foam, that’s a modern and reliable means with additional anti-corrosive protection of the external surface.
Heaters and heat exchangers are selected on the basis of ATC 24.218.07-90 "External and internal heat exchangers for vessels and apparatus." General technical specification".
This type of vessels is installed vertically on metal supports, the height of which is calculated during the design development.
Manufacture of Vertical apparatus with conic bottoms at Saratov Reservoir Plant
The Saratov Reservoir Plant has the necessary Certificates of Conformity for the production of vessels of any sizes and purpose.
Vertical vessels VKK are made of various materials based on operating conditions and environmental characteristics:
- stainless steel 12Х18Н10Т
- stainless steel AISI 304, Russian analogue 08H18N10
- low-alloyed grades 09G2S, 16GS, 10G2
- carbon steel St3sp
All welded seams are made by semi-automatic welding. At the end of the work, weld inspection is carried out in accordance with the production program. Hydraulic tests are carried out to check the tightness.
The Saratov Reservoir Plant produces VKK in any complete sets. Below you can see the drawing of vertical vessel VKK, designed for storing of fat.
