Industrial process tanks

An industrial process tank is used within a process and means a vessel or other container used for mixing or batching of chemicals, feeds, wastewater, or other components. Additionally, a process tank can also be used for the preparation of one or more components, leading to the production of the desired product. In many process tanks, unit operations such as reactions and blending are conducted.

When processing fluids under high pressure and in corrosive environments, you can’t entrust the job to just any equipment. Precision is key, especially in the chemical processing industry. The stainless steel Pillowplate Dimple Jacket from Daussiny Laser Welding is perfect for the job.

Stainless steel Pillowplate jacketed vessel

Single-embossed laser-welded jacketed vessels are made of two stainless steel Pillowplates of different thickness, welded together by using laser or resistance welding. Through a special inflation process, fluid channels are created between the Pillowplates. Together with the fittings, these channels form a pressure chamber, through which a fluid will pass to transfer heat transfer to and from the chamber, enclosing the single-embossed laser-welded dimple jacket. A well-designed jacketed tank with a thermal fluid system is a seamless way to achieve the temperatures that are needed to heat or cool the product within.

Jacketed vessels are used in many industries and are mainly used as process tank plates. For example in heating and cooling food- and pharmaceutical tanks. The use of single-embossed Pillowplates, already deformed, combine the advantage of compressive strength and required smooth interior of the inner tank wall. The large dimple jacketed surface ensures safe process control with homogeneous temperature control. Manufactured tanks out of laser-welded dimple jackets have also less weight, above all, because of less stainless steel material. Tanks can be manufactured cost efficient by even higher product quality.

Single embossed laser-welded dimple jackets are integrated into process tank cooling and heating steps. Individual design in measurement, shape and material, allow flexible use in numerous industries and extend the normal standard. Single embossed laser-welded dimple jackets may be rolled to a cylindrical half-jacket and be clamped on to existing tanks retroactively. Or being welded to rings to build a tank.

A few examples of process tanks are:

  • Mixing tank
  • Fermentation tank
  • Agitator tank
  • Blending tank
  • Chemical mixing tank
  • Aseptic tank
