PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE OF SAFETY DEVICES FOR CRYOGENIC FLAT BOTTOM TANKS
Cryospain, a reference company in cryogenic engineering in Europe, supplies and manufactures all the parts that flat-bottomed cryogenic tanks need to maintain them operating in the same conditions as they did on day one. Correct maintenance is key to guarantee the normal and safe operation of the cryogenic tank, as well as to extend its lifetime.
In Cryospain we offer preventive maintenance services, to provide the maximum efficiency, safety, and production of the cryogenic vessels installed. This service includes the revision, repair, and replacement of the necessary elements, so that your tank offers the same virtues with which it was manufactured. Our policy is to work with elements and components with the highest performance, which meet the highest standards of quality and safety. In this way we ensure the reliability of our services and the satisfaction of our customers.
Flat-bottom cryogenic tanks are prepared to withstand adverse conditions over the years, and this shall not affect them excessively. In order not to alter their operation, routine checks must be performed on each of the elements that make up their structure. Some of the tank safety devices that are regularly checked are the PSV (safety valves), the rupture discs and the emergency taps. The correct maintenance of flat bottom tanks allows maintaining safe infrastructure and to protect the people who perform operations in the plants every day.
In the last month, Cryospain has, for example, sent spare parts and new safety devices for the flat bottom cryogenic tank located in Doha (Qatar), in order to carry on a preventive maintenance section. This tank was built in years 2015 and 2016 in an area affected by extreme high temperatures and dry, and for the storage of LOX (Liquid Oxygen). Hostile climatic conditions such as high temperatures or low humidity are studied by our engineers, when planning and elaborating the tank and they adopt these constraints to the final design.
In the flat-bottomed cryogenic tank installed in Doha, an exhaustive maintenance will be carried out, ensuring the fundamental pillars of quality and safety that Cryospain maintains in all its services and works.
The following elements will be replaced:
- Kit of spare parts for safety valves inner tank
- Kit of spare parts for block valves
- Spare bursting discs
- Kit of spare parts for safety valve outer tank
- Kit of spare parts for emergency vent
- Spare ball valve
- Kit of spare parts for safety valves overflow
- Spare flowmeter
- Spare manometer
- Spare cryogenic globe valve
- Spare ball valve ss non cryo
- Bronze filters
- Set of gaskets
At Cryospain, we are not only committed to the quality of our products because of their design and materials, but we also provide commitment and security in routine checks. Our commitment allows the projects we carry out to have long lifetime on the market and their operation guarantees maximum performance.
