Ross storage vessels are custom-built to meet exact specifications for pressure, temperature, material of construction, cover design, discharge assembly and access ports. The pictured carbon steel vessel, for example, has a full holding capacity of 9,750 gal and is ASME-stamped for 50-psig internal pressure to full vacuum at 200°F.
The elliptical style top and bottom heads include various size flanges and couplings at customer-specified locations. Internal surfaces were thoroughly cleaned, dried and media blasted; exterior surfaces were also media blasted and coated with red oxide primer. Prior to shipment, the nozzles were capped and the tank purged with 2 psig of nitrogen, so as to arrive at the customer’s job site in a clean, rust-free condition. Lifting lugs and a caged removable ladder and handrail with toe plate were also provided.
