ABOVEGROUND LPG TANKS

CHEMET offers a steady supply of mass-produced aboveground tanks for propane and propane-butane gases in four basic capacities: 2700 l, 4850 l, 6400 l and 9200 l.

The tanks are manufactured according to the Pressure European Directive (PED) and have the CE-mark for the IV climatic zone and are adapted to the following operational parameters - temperature -20/+40°C and maximum pressure of 15.6 bar. In order to meet the requirements from the overseas standards CHEMET introduced in 2010 and 2011 a new line of LPG tanks on 1000 mm and 1250 mm diameters which operate in the full temperature from -40°C up to +50°C with maximum working pressure of 20 bar.

Application

Standard LPG tanks manufactured by CHEMET are used primarily as an element of heating installations in residential single- and multifamily buildings, hotel and leisure centres, office and industrial buildings. The tanks are also extensively used in all kinds of plants, where gas is used for technological purposes such as poultry farms, drying houses for agricultural products and production facilities. Very important destinations for LPG tanks manufactured by CHEMET are so-called autogas stations.

Construction

The basic construction of tanks is in accordance with Directive PED/97/23/EC and harmonized standards. Tanks are made of carbon steel plates, coated with high quality ternary paint coating in white colour, which at the same time, through high reflectivity, protects the tank from overheating. Paint coating is covered by quality and durability warranty.
