AMMONIA SPHERICAL TANK
Properties of Ammonia:
Ammonia is a colourless, flammable gas with a strong irritating odor. It is manufactured in large quantities for industrial purposes and is used in the production of nitric acid, fertilizers, and explosives.

3. Material used Carbon steel, fine grain for low temperature service, impact tested.
4. The manufacture of spherical tanks includes making spherical shells, field installation, field welding and a series of tests
SAFETY IN STORAGE & HANDLING OF AMMONIA
Ammonia is the single largest hazardous chemical manufactured, stored and transported worldwide. Ammonia is manufactured at elevated temperature and pressure in presence of promoted Iron catalyst. Anhydrous Ammonia is stored in pressurised vessels like sphere, Ammonia mounded vessels, ammonia storage tanks etc as per various international guidelines and safety norms.
Types of Ammonia Tanks:
Small volumes of ammonia are stored in cylindrical horizontal bullets or spheres designed for ambient temperature and with no refrigeration. This is definitely the safest system, but it cannot store large volumes at reasonable cost. Anhydrous Ammonia is stored in pressurised vessels like sphere, Ammonia mounded vessels, ammonia storage tanks etc as per various international guidelines and safety norms.

Spherical tanks are used for different storage like:
Ammonium Nitrate Storage
We also Manufacturer of Different types of Ammonia tank.
Liquefied Ammonia Tank:
Liqueﬁed ammonia from production plants is either used directly in downstream plants or
Transferred to storage tanks. From these the ammonia can be transferred to road tankers, rail tank cars or ships.
Ammonia Storage tank
Emissions during normal operation are negligible. Major leaks of ammonia from storage tanks are almost unknown with most of the leaks which do occur being during transport or transfer. A well designed, constructed, operated and maintained installation has a very low probability of an ammonia leak of hazardous proportions.
Storage of Ammonia
Ammonia is usually stored by using one or other of three methods:-
• Fully refrigerated storage in large tanks
• Pressurised storage spheres
• Semi-refrigerated tanks
Key Specifications / Special Features:
• Volume varies from 200 m³ to 10,000 m³
• Mainly used for storing many kinds of liquefied gas and chemical liquids
