ASME Code Acid Storage Tanks Fabricated by PKG Equipment
PKG designed and fabricated (2) 6200 gallon acid storage tanks from carbon steel in accordance with the latest edition of ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code Sec. VIII, Div. 1 for unfired pressure vessels. The maximum allowable pressure for both tanks was 40 PSI at 100º F. The tanks were 84" Ø x 237" straight side. All circumferential and longitudinal shell welds were complete penetration butt welds. The tank interiors were grit blasted to white metal per SSPC-SP5. Each tank had a 24" Ø manway, (6) 150# flanged fittings, lifting lugs and saddle re-pads for existing saddles. The exterior of both tanks was grit blasted to SSPC-SP6. Each tank exterior was coated with a base coat of Amercoat Multi Purpose High Build Epoxy with a top coat of Amercoat Gloss Aliphatic Resin Polyurethane in gloss white. The first tank was for storing 31% to 37% hydrochloric acid. The tank interior was lined with 3/16" thick pure gum natural rubber. Seams were overlaid with 2" wide cap strips. The liner was carried through the full face of all nozzles and the manway and included in the attached manway cover. A spark test was performed after liner installation.
The second tank was for storing 67% to 98% sulfuric acid. That tank′s interior was coated with Enecon Chemclad XC, 100% solids, high performance chemical resistant coating. Three coats were applied in alternating colors of dark and light gray. The coating was carried through the full face of all nozzles and the manway including the manway cover. A 5000 to 7000 volts spark test was performed.
Once the tanks were completed, each tank was inspected by a quality assurance inspector authorized by The National Board of Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspectors, received a U-stamp and was registered with The National Board of Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspectors. After the tanks were installed at the customer′s facility, a metal fabricator from PKG Equipment spark tested the tanks prior to being filled.
Cleaning Tank Fabricated by PKG Equipment
PKG Equipment fabricated this tank to hold a cleaning solution for steel bars. The tank is approximately 28'-4" x 5'-3" x 4'-10" deep fabricated from 1½" natural copolymer polypro. The interior tank bottom has 11/2" thick polypro bumpers throughout the working area to protect the bottom from falling parts. There are also bumper strips on the interior front and back sidewalls. One end of the tank has a 45" x 501/2" bumper plate. The opposite end has (2) 316 stainless steel pump bases with splash guards. A carbon steel splash guard shield runs along the back of the tank. A polyurethane coating for corrosion resistance, Hi-Chem, was applied to the shield. The shield was sandblasted prior to coating. The tank was supported by a cage fabricated from steel tubing, blasted and coated with Hi-Chem.
PKG Equipment Fabricates 62' Long Polypropylene Tank for Steel Manufacturer
PKG Equipment fabricated this continuous strip, sulfuric acid, pickling tank for Siemens Energy & Automation for delivery to a major steel manufacturer in Japan. The polypropylene tank is 5263 gallons and measures approximately 62' x 7.5' x 5.5' deep. It was manufactured from 1.5" stress relieved polypropylene sheet and was designed for a maximum operating temperature of 194° F.
The tank had an integral drip tray and six tank covers. A water trough style seal was incorporated into the tank to ensure a gas tight seal with the tank covers which increases the effectiveness of the ventilation. Teflon steam injectors and granite wear bars were included in the tank. The entire polypropylene tank had full penetration welds and was completely spark tested. All extrusion welded corner joints were capped with 40mm square corner polypropylene reinforcements.
Field Erected Polypropylene Tank
PKG Equipment Inc. replaced a bulging and embrittled rotationally molded tank with a custom fabricated polypropylene tank that was shipped to the job site in pieces that would fit through a 5' x 6' opening. The tank was located in the basement of the Pennsylvania American Water Company's water treatment plant in Hummelstown, PA. The largest opening to the basement was a 5' x 6' hatch in the first floor of the building, but the tank needed to be 142" in diameter x 101" high.
In order to avoid any demolition work that would be required to get the tank installed in one piece, PKG Equipment assembled and extrusion welded the tank on site. The tank was fabricated from 1/2" thick copolymer polypropylene and was supported by epoxy coated steel girth bands. Field erecting this polypropylene tank saved the customer money and greatly reduced their downtime.
New Polypropylene Pretreatment Tanks & Reconstruction of Secondary Containment Pits
This project occurred in two phases during the winters of 2006 and 2007 & required engineering, fabrication & installation by PKG Equipment.
Phase I - East Pit
Fabrication of three new 38' x 5' x 7' deep steel reinforced copolymer polypropylene tanks began in November of 2005. In January 2006 demolition of the old pit was started. All of the existing concrete was removed and replaced with a panelized pre-cast concrete secondary containment pit measuring 27' x 44' x 4' deep. The panels were assembled and post tensioned to add strength to the structure. PKG Equipment then coated the entire inside of the pit with Rhino Lining's Durabond spray-on elastomer polyurethane coating to make the pit a secondary containment structure that meets NY state standards. A PVC lined trench was installed between the east and west pits, and cast-in-place concrete was laid to match the existing finished floor to the edge of the pit and trench all the way around. The three new polypropylene tanks were set in place and leveled in the pit. The system was finished off with fiberglass grating at grade level around and between the tanks.
Phase II - West Pit
Fabrication of four more 38' x 5' x 7' deep steel reinforced copolymer polypropylene tanks began in October 2006. In January of 2007 demolition of the old pit started. All of the existing concrete was removed and replaced with a panelized pre-cast concrete secondary containment pit measuring 38' x 44' x 4' deep. The panels were assembled and post tensioned to add strength to the structure. PKG Equipment coated the entire inside of the pit with Rhino Lining's Durabond spray-on elastomer polyurethane coating to make the pit a secondary containment structure that meets NY state standards. The new pit was matched up to the PVC trench between the two pits, and a new PVC lined trench was installed to the heat exchanger room. Cast-in-place concrete was laid to match the existing finished floor to the edge of the pit and trenches all the way around. The new polypropylene tanks were set in place and leveled in the pit. The system was finished off with fiberglass grating at grade level around and between the polypropylene tanks.
