Environmental concerns and potential liability issues are always in play when tanks are used to store hazardous materials. In some cases, tanks must offer more than just secure protection. For instance, to ensure proper performance and safety, some chemicals and other fluids must be kept at specific temperatures. It’s for this purpose that a jacketed tank may be required. A jacketed vessel is surrounded with a secondary shell that allows for temperature-controlling fluid or gas to flow around the tank without directly coming in contact with the media inside the tank. If your next tank or pressure vessel requires external heating or cooling, reach out to the experts at Savannah Tank and Equipment Corporation.
We have nearly 30 years of experience building tanks with heat transfer jackets. The most common types of tank jackets are:
- Conventional jacket – The tank is outfitted with an additional wall that encapsulates it. While this style of jacket provides the most coverage, it is typically the heaviest and thickest jacket option. This is because the pressure of the jacket must be applied as an external pressure to the inner tank
- Dimpled jacket tanks – A dimple jacket tank features a lightweight outer shell and is best suited for applications that don’t require extreme changes to the temperature. The dimples in the jacket reduce the weight and cost of the tank. However, this style is not recommended for applications that require thermally shocking the tank.
- Half-pipe jacket tanks – A perfect choice for a jacketed reactor vessel or large storage tank, this type of jacket is typically used in high-temperature applications. It consists of piping that is welded to the outside of the tank.
