MARINE HYDROPHORE PRESSURE TANKS
Hydrophore pressure tanks are vessels that hold water and air under pressure.
The function that pressure tank performs is to supply water to the system in booster pump applications. It can provide water to the system during of a no flow shutdown of the booster pump.
It also regulates the system pressure to quickly meet system demands. The compressed air creates a cushion that can absorb or apply pressure as needed.
DIKO Hydrophore pressure tanks are manufactured at various volume capacities ranging from 280 liters to 5000 liters as standard production. Larger capacities are available upon customers’ request. The standard materials used for the construction are hot dipped galvanized steel or AISI 304L stainless steels. 316L or Duplex quality stainless steels are available upon request.
Tanks are designed according to, DIN 4810, EN 13445, AD 2000 – Merkblatt. If required tank designs according to ASME Section VIII Div1 code are available. ASME U Stamp tanks can be provided if required.
Inspection certificates can be provided from any IACS member classification societies upon request.
As an option passivation and pickling processes are applied to the tanks in order to increase the corrosion resistance of the tank material.
