A tank farm refers to an area or facility used exclusively for the storage of chemicals such as petroleum. It includes all of the tanks and equipment in this area. Liquid petrochemicals are stored in a tank farm before being sent to end consumers or retail facilities. Tank farms are also common when producing or handling acid of varying concentrations and qualities. Tank farms may be affected by corrosion and fire, so proper corrosion and fire protection is necessary. In the petroleum industry, a tank far is also known as an oil depot, installation or oil terminal.
Tank farms should preferably be placed in the open and on one side of the process plant area. This arrangement allows adequate segregation and provides for the possibility of expanding either the tanks farm area or process plant area at any time in the future.
Designed to protect tanks from rupture or implosion during filling and/or emptying cycles, our Tank Farm Products limits product loss and environmental discharges whilst also protecting tanks during thermal changes.
Emergency Relief Vents & Access Manways, Free Vents, Automatic Recirculation valve, Pressure & vacuum relief valves, tank blanketing valves, Air eliminator, Flow control valve, and Sight glass are few of our available range of quality approved Tank Farm Products supplied across the UAE and other GCC countries, with which tank farms and other large vessels essentially needs to be equipped with.
Emergency relief vents are fitted to storage tanks to allow emergency flow due to the excessive venting requirement from a fire burning around a storage tank. Their use eliminated a costly tank rupture by providing emergency venting from abnormal internal pressure beyond the capacity of the pressure relief vent. In the event of a fire, the pallet lifts at a predetermined pressure, thus supplying a large venting area.
Tank free vent, also known as conservation vents are for use on any tank to prevent the build-up of internal pressure by allowing atmospheres and vapours to flow easily in tanks or vent riser pipes. Our supplied free vent is manufactured in the most advanced establishments and are designed to offer the highest quality manufacturing and service.
Pressure/vacuum relief valves are protection devices which are typically mounted on a nozzle opening on the top of a fixed roof atmospheric storage tank. Their primary purpose is to protect the tank against rupturing or imploding. Without an opening or a controlled opening, a fixed roof atmospheric tank would rupture under increasing pressure caused by pumping liquid into the tank or as a result of vapour pressure changes caused by severe thermal changes.
