Vessels and Tanks

Tanks (or vessels) are one of the most commonly used containers.

They are used for storing compressed gases of various types, liquids or other mediums. They can be cylindrical, open- or closed-tops, vertical and horizontal.

Tanks and Vessels can be divided into two main groups.

Pressure tanks

Pressure tanks are used for holding gaseous or liquid substances stored below pressure exceeding atmospheric. Vessels in this group require high quality and stability of every element. They are manufactured according to a formal code. In Europe, this code is the Pressure Equipment Directive (PED) 2014/68/EU. Every newly constructed pressure tank requires approval by an authorised inspector and accompanied by a nameplate presenting production date, allowable working pressure and maximum temperature, minimum design metal temperature, the registration number and U-stamp (ASMEs official stamp for pressure vessels). AAP products are guaranteed protected against corrosion, long-lasting operation under high or low temperatures, and physical wear.

Non-pressure Tanks

Non-pressure Tanks and Vessels can be used for storing or producing mediums at natural pressure. When working with AAP for Tanks and Vessels projects, you can choose any size, mounting type, form factor or any other characteristics.
