Storage tanks are used for “storing” the excess water within the heating systems of cogeneration units. These tanks are single shelled, pressure (PN6, PN10, PN16) containers made of structural steel, rarely of stainless steel, with the capacity ranging from 2 up to 250 m3. They store heat (usually as hot water with temperature 50-100°C) from an outer source until its further usage. The tank is fitted with three or four mounting legs, with necks for input and output of the heating medium, with internal distribution ratification sleeves, with lugs for measurement, regulation, drainage and ventilation and with thermal insulation. Accumulation tanks optimize the operation of cogeneration units and the equal heat supply for the system.
Company BAEST Machines & Structures, Inc. offers its customers both standard solutions and atypical types of tanks. The company shall propose an optimal solution according to customer assigned tasks including a structural analysis, and further ensures the manufacture, transport and installation at the destination. Catalogue of storage tanks shall be sent upon request.
