In order for LPG to liquefy, it must be subjected to specific cooling and pressure conditions, which must also be maintained during storage (and possibly transport) - this requires lpg storage tanks. lpg storage tanks are pressure vessels for storing liquefied petroleum gas (propane) as the main component medium. lpg storage tanks are one of the most efficient ways of storing liquefied LPG, with capacities ranging from 10 (2640gl) to 200 (52800GL) cubic metres. (1,000 gallon and larger tanks - these tanks are used for large residential applications (over 4,500 sq ft) or commercial and industrial applications - also known as CIMC ENRIC production.

DESCRIPTION

Shapes


CIMC ENRIC LPG Storage Tank ranges from determining the distance requirements for each tank to determining the right space conditions for storage. You should also consider whether you want to store them vertically or horizontally. Before handling or even distributing LPG storage tanks, you must first obtain approval from the regulatory authorities. They must ensure that the facility where you intend to store the tanks is large enough to accommodate the capacity you need. You must also have a minimum workforce to manage the facility in the event of a fire, on-site fire extinguishers, etc. 


There are two basic types of above-ground propane LPG tanks: horizontal tanks and vertical tanks. Horizontal propane tanks (sometimes called "torpedo tanks") are large-capacity containers typically used where propane is the main source of heat in the home. Their increased storage capacity can limit the need for propane delivery in winter, which can help in areas where the weather is unpredictable.


CIMC ENRIC produces LPG storage tanks, mainly horizontal, for large commercial and industrial storage and transport


CIMC ENRIC is a leading company in specialty gas storage and transportation equipment in China and can supply you with the best quality lpg tanks to meet the requirements of each country. We will guide you in your local compliance with storage regulations to ensure maximum product safety.

FAQ:


How to store LPG

LPG is designed to maximise its storage opportunities, as 1 litre of LPG has been shown to be as effective as 270 litres of natural gas.

However, in order for it to liquefy, it must withstand specific cooling and pressure conditions, which must also be maintained during its storage (and potential transportation). The use of LPG tanks and other alternatives, such as LPG cylinders, LPG bulk tanks, underground LPG tanks or small LPG tanks, can solve this problem. 

Flat-bottomed cryogenic storage tanks are one of the most efficient ways to store LPG, with capacities ranging from 1,000 to 30,000 cubic metres.


When considering LPG tanks, a number of risks must be considered.

There is a risk of explosion

There is also a risk of asphyxiation due to LPG leaks

It is a highly flammable substance

In its liquefied state, contact with LPG can cause severe burns


How to choose a storage tank

Tank material selection: LPG storage tanks are manufactured from standard strength pressure vessel special steel plates because they need to meet low temperature and high pressure storage requirements

Quality control points in the process: advanced automatic ring welding equipment ensures stable weld joints and even and smooth surface joints to ensure the safety of LPG storage tanks

Valve fittings and flange selection: high quality and sealing of valve fittings such as well covers, safety valves, manual venting valves, thermometers and level gauges

Tank painting: tank sanding and rust removal, spraying anti-rust paint, hanging ion paint, and finally brushing primer and topcoat these steps. No paint loss and no fading is one of the conditions to test the durability

Emergency arrangements: The supplier's emergency telephone number will be printed on the LPG tank and should be dialled in the event of a leak.


LPG Storage Tank


When using LPG tanks, the following safety measures are recommended.


It is recommended that LPG bulk tanks are installed in well-ventilated or outdoor areas and at ground level. Mechanical ventilation systems should be considered to ensure that fresh air is provided.

LPG tanks must be protected from any source of ignition or heat and be fire rated. Combustible materials should also be kept away from LPG tanks, as well as anything that may generate static electricity.

These units should be kept away from incompatible substances and the use of barrier systems (e.g. screen walls made of non-combustible materials) should be considered.

The use of alarm systems and air quality testing to monitor potential LPG leaks is recommended.

When operating LPG tanks, staff must wear adequate personal protective equipment to avoid freezing burns and other hazards.

A proper maintenance schedule must be ensured to avoid tank bursts and other safety issues.

Pressure-reducing valves are a common accessory for LP gas cylinders. These can help relieve pressure to prevent pressure build-up from endangering the system.

The engineering team responsible for the design and implementation of LP gas tanks must comply with the required national and international legislation and quality protocols. 

LPG tanks must be stored vertically with the valves closed. The use of appropriate restraint methods, including chains or safety belts, must also be considered.

These storage solutions must also maintain all necessary documentation documenting the safety measures taken, as well as all documentation relating to hazardous materials protocols.


Siting of the tank


There should be a minimum separation distance (called spacing distance) between the tank and any building, boundary line or fixed source of ignition. This should have been checked when the tank was installed, if you are not sure, please consult us and we will help you with the installation plan and service.

Ventilation and surroundings of the tank: In the event of a leak, there should be enough space around the tank to allow sufficient air movement so that heavier-than-air LPG vapour does not form.

Shock protection: If possible, the tank (and its accompanying pipework) should be placed away from areas of high pedestrian traffic. If this is not possible, protection from motor vehicle impact on the tank is required, e.g. crash barriers or bollards.
