Floating roof tanks are generally used to store volatile liquids to minimize the loss of the stored liquid product. Whereas, fixed roof tanks are generally used in refineries to store the product that does not readily vaporize at ambient or stored temperature conditions.
The most basic, but important question will be, Which storage system makes more sense for my project: an underground or aboveground system?
The following article will provide a sample case study for Storage Tanks Layout or Tank Farm based on OISD-Standards-118.
In this article, we will learn the tank farm design considerations, storage tanks arrangement, tank farm length, and width calculation, and dyke wall height calculation.
The pump piping design can have an important impact on the operating efficiency and life expectancy of any pump. Hence, the piping design engineer must consider the important points while designing the pump piping layout.
Cavitation is a very common problem for pumps. If you hear strange noises coming from your pump, there is a good chance that cavitation is the reason.
Centrifugal pumps are the most popular and most commonly used pumps, which are used for transferring the fluid …
A Heat exchanger is a device designed to transfer heat between two or more fluids (liquid, vapor, or gas) of different temperatures. On the basis of the heat exchanger, the heat transferring process can be gas-to-gas, liquid-to-gas, or liquid-to-liquid.
