CO2 tank

Getting to know the CO2 tank

Under pressure - carbon - double-walled

One of the more widely used pressure vessels is the CO2 tank, which is made of a solid casing and is used to store carbon dioxide gas (CO2) at high pressure. Due to the special importance of these tanks, their design and construction are very sensitive and must be done carefully in order to follow all the security points and necessary standards. These tanks are designed and manufactured through different standards such as Asmaeili standard. For this reason, it is essential and vital to use relevant standards for the design and construction of pressure tanks. Today, carbon dioxide tanks are widely used in industrial and non-industrial applications.

Liquid carbon dioxide tanks (CO2 tank) can be classified into polyurethane foam insulation tank and vacuum powder adiabatic tank with working temperature of -40 degrees, the main material can be OCrI8nI9 or 16 MnDR.
This type of CO2 tanks have a compact structure and can be used in metallurgy, chemistry, food industry, fire protection, etc.

The carbon double wall CO2 tank is reliable, easy to use and maintain.

What is a CO2 tank?

The CO2 tank, or the liquid carbon dioxide storage tank (Carbon Capture and Storage – CCS), is a technology used to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. In this technology, carbon dioxide gas is extracted from various sources such as power plants, factories and industries and then stored in liquid carbon dioxide storage tanks, which are often located underground.

In general, the main purpose of using liquid carbon dioxide storage tanks and double-walled carbon CO2 tanks is to reduce the emission of carbon dioxide gas into the environment.

CO2 tank uses

CO2 tanks or carbon dioxide tanks are used to store different types of gases:

Some of them, such as methane, ethane, propane and butane, are stored in compressed form in gas tanks.

In addition, CO2 tanks can also be used to store gases such as hexane, LNG, LG, ethylene, butylene and helium.

Also, this type of carbon dioxide tanks can be used to store gases such as carbon oxides, fluorine, caustic soda, sulfur, chlorine and water vapor.

Application of CO2 tank

– Conserving and transporting CO2 gas for use in industrial processes, such as soft drink production, petrochemicals and refineries.

– Conserving CO2 for use in greenhouse and agricultural processes, such as the production of industries related to plants and agricultural products.

– Use in fire extinguishing equipment to extinguish electrical and thermal fires.

– Use in recycled environments to absorb and preserve carbon dioxide gas, in order to reduce greenhouse effects.

– Use in oxygen industries to preserve and transfer CO2 gas.

CO2 tank design requirements

In the design of the CO2 tank, the following should be considered:

  1. Fluid type and operating pressure
  2. Required volume and working temperature
  3. Design and construction standards (ASME and API.)
  4. Number of nozzles
  5. Tank type (isotank, semi-trailer, static tank)

These things are very important and must be observed in the design of carbon dioxide tanks to ensure the safety and efficiency of the tank.

Types of CO2 tanks

In general, we refer to some types of CO2 tanks:

1- Condensate tanks:

These types of tanks are usually used to transport and store CO2 gas. In this type of carbon dioxide tanks, CO2 gas is placed under very high pressure and stored at a low temperature (approximately -20 degrees Celsius).

2- double-wall carbon LPG tanks:

This type of tank is used to store and transport CO2 gas as well as LPG gas. This type of CO2 tank has two walls, the space between the two walls is filled with vacuum to minimize heat.

3- Caustic CO2:

This type of CO2 tank is used to store high pressure carbon dioxide in the chemical and petrochemical industries.

4- Buffer tanks and autoclaves:

These types of tanks are used to store CO2 in heating systems, air conditioning and other industrial systems.

5- Types of steam boilers:

These types of boilers are used to produce steam in various industries as well as generate electricity through boiler generators.

The structure and components of the co2 tank

After understanding what a CO2 tank is, we will now examine the components and structure of this type of tank.

CO2 tanks for storing carbon dioxide gas should be designed in such a way that, in addition to optimal performance in terms of gas preservation, they also have the ability to be easily accessible and managed. Therefore, carbon CO2 tank includes components such as body, lid, injection system and piping lines. The body of the tank must be made of durable and high-quality materials and have the ability to withstand the pressure and weight of carbon dioxide gas. The tank door should also be of the same material and be easy to open and close. The injection system must be designed in such a way that it injects the gas volume accurately, and the piping lines must also be of suitable quality, as well as resistance to the pressure and weight of the carbon dioxide gas.

The most important parts in the design of co2 tanks

CO2 tanks consist of different parts, the most important of which we mention:

Body: The body of the tank is made of steel, concrete or polymer, which must have good resistance characteristics. Most efforts are made in the design of the body of CO2 tanks to reduce gas leakage, maintain pressure and prevent gas penetration from between the joints of the body.
Internal coating: The performance of CO2 tanks depends on its internal coating, which must have very good resistance and chemical properties and guarantee no gas leakage.
Gas transfer system: To transfer gas into the tank, a special system must be designed. This system includes pipes, pumps and protective equipment that must comply with the safety rules related to gas transmission.
Emptying system: To empty the tank of gas, the emptying system is designed with the right pressure and enough speed to get the gas out of the tank.
Control system: To control the pressure, temperature and other conditions of the tank, a control system is required, which includes data collection devices, sensors, display screens and other related control equipment.
Precision instruments: To measure the pressure, temperature and other characteristics of the carbon dioxide tank, precision instruments must be used that can have high accuracy and precision in the measurements.
Fire extinguishing system: Due to the possible risks of fire accidents, CO2 tanks must be accompanied by a suitable fire extinguishing system so that in case of fire, the necessary measures can be taken quickly and safely.
Ventilation system: In order to maintain the optimal temperature inside the tank and increase its useful life, the ventilation system must be permanently active with proper efficiency.

Features of double-wall carbon CO2 tank

The double-wall carbon CO2 tank is a type of high pressure tank that is used to store CO2 gas in industrial processes and transfer it to other areas. The main features of this type of tanks include the following:

1- Having two layers of steel with an empty space between them, which is filled with a neutral gas such as nitrogen. This feature increases safety against potential hazards such as CO2 gas leaks.

2- The ability to withstand high pressure and resistance to strong shocks and vibrations, which reduces the risk of tank damage and the possibility of CO2 gas leakage.

3- It has an intelligent system for controlling the internal pressure and temperature of the tank, which maintains the appropriate temperature and pressure inside the tank and also reduces the risk of CO2 gas leakage.

4- The ability to transfer and move easily for use in various industries, which reduces the costs of transportation and maintenance of the tank.

5- Can be designed and produced in different tonnages and pressures

6- It has 8 valves for better efficiency of the device

7- With pressure coil

Due to the above characteristics, double-wall carbon CO2 tanks are an ideal solution for safe storage and transfer of CO2 gas in various industries.

Difference between CO2 and LCO2 tank

CO2 tank and LCO2 VH (Very High) are two types of tanks for storing and transporting liquid carbon dioxide, but there are differences about them.

1. Working pressure: CO2 tanks are usually designed for standard working pressures, while LCO2 VH tanks are designed for much higher pressures. LCO2 VH are usually used to store and transport liquid carbon dioxide at pressures above 50 bar (725 PSI) are used.

2. Structure and thickness: Due to the high pressure, the LCO2 VH tanks must be made of very resistant materials with appropriate thickness to withstand high pressures. In contrast, CO2 tanks designed for relatively lower pressures may have a thinner structure and thickness.

3. Volume and capacity: Due to the higher pressure and the need to transport larger quantities of liquid carbon dioxide, LCO2 VH tanks usually have a larger capacity than CO2 tanks. These types of tanks are mainly suitable for industrial and commercial applications.

4. Applications: CO2 tanks are used in industries such as food industry, water treatment, electronics industry, etc. LCO2 VH tanks are mostly used in industries that require high pressure and transportation of large amounts of liquid carbon dioxide, such as petrochemical industry, soldering industry, industrial refrigeration, etc.
