HYDROCARBON TANKS

APRO Industrie designs, manufactures and installs tanks for the storage of hydrocarbons, up to 10,000 m3 capacity (~ 65 000 bbl). APRO Industrie can in particular supply tanks which meet oil standard API 12B.

Fields of application

The hydrocarbon tanks designed and installed by APRO Industrie may be employed for the storage of:

  • Crude oil,
  • Heavy and domestic fuel oil (HFO)
  • Kerosene (JET), diesel (GO), Paraffins and other hydrocarbons for domestic burners

APRO Industrie does not provide storage for standard or high grade petrol

Principles

RIGID TANKS

Réservoir_hydrocarbure, assemblage

The APRO Industrie hydrocarbon tanks are produced in accordance with standard API 12B with a single or double shell. The tanks are bolted together and consist of epoxy-coated steel sheets (Link to the “Epoxy-coated steel” page). Sealing between the sheets is ensured by elastomeric seals (Nitrile, Viton, Epichlorhydrine etc.) (Link to the page on “Sealing”).
The covers for our hydrocarbon tanks are of two types:

  • 1:12 conical roof, self-supporting or supported on a central pillar (Link to the page on “Covers”)
  • Self-supporting aluminium geodetic dome type roof, enabling spans of over 120 m, complying with standard API 650 (Link to the page on “Covers”).

Our hydrocarbon tanks are equipped with a metallic floor, which may be flat, conical or inverted conical.
