Oily Water Tank
end-user client first
removes oil laden sludge from their process at their
flagship steel mill in northern Indiana. Once that product
is pumped to these two 30,000 gallon, 12’ diameter x 36’
tall tanks, the goal is to separate and recover the oil from
the sludge. Because this new product has such a thick
consistency, their consulting engineering firm
bottom tank, with a 12” sloped bottom
foot of tank diameter)!
So the shorter side is 35’ long, and the longer side is 36’
long. This severe 12” sloped bottom proved to be no problem
for the concrete contractor to pour a matching sloped pad.
That was interesting to see, for sure! These tanks were
built in accordance with API 650, Appendix J for shop built
tanks, and ASME Section IX for weld procedures and welder
the attractive features that CRECO offered, and subsequently
supplied, was the FACTORY MOUNTED INSULATION AND
stucco-embossed aluminum sheathing, saving the end-user
thousands of dollars vs. field-installed insulation.
interior of these tanks were sandblasted and 2 coats of a
white epoxy were applied and the exterior received 1 coat,
even though it was immediately covered with insulation and
the exterior sheath.
tanks weighed 20,000# each, and were no problem for CRECO to
arrange shipping to the project site. Unloading and
setting by the contractor proved to be a snap as well,
thanks to the use of two cranes!
Why not let CRECO supply your next
metal tank project, with or without insulation?
