Charles Ross Announces Ross Storage Vessels
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 gallons and is ASME-stamped for 50-psig internal pressure to full vacuum at 200oF. 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 2psig of nitrogen, so as to arrive at the customer’s jobsite in a clean, rust-free condition. Lifting lugs and a caged removable ladder and handrail with toe plate were also provided.
With decades of vessel manufacturing experience, Ross offers a wide range of fabrication capabilities including:
- Capacities up to 100,000 gallons or larger.
- Many choices for material of construction: carbon steel, stainless steel, aluminum, titanium, Monel, Hastelloy and Inconel.
