Cryogenic Storage Tanks


Cryogenic Storage Tanks

Cryogenic storage tanks or containers are often used for transport of liquefied cryogenic gases such as nitrogen, oxygen, argon or LPG. They also function as stationary storage storage tanks where the construction of stationary LNG-Sat-Block plants is not possible. Our cryogenic tanks are produced for vertical and horizontal installation. The operating volume depending on the medium starts at 3 m³  and ends at 350 m³ volume capacity.

Storage Tanks

For stationary applications we offer tank containers with a filling capacity of 5,8 m³ up to 76,5 m³ (LNG). Please note that those storage tanks do also need to be transported to their final destinations via trucks. Thereby, standard transportation costs arise at a container up to 52,78 m³. Deviating costs for the tank containers with a filling capacity of 67,2 m³ and 76,5 m³ must be specifically requested as special permits are required.

Our container offers for the following media:

Tank Container for LNG, LIN, LOX, LAR

Tank containers are preferred in various applications. For this purpose we offer a selection of 20 ", 30" and 40 "tank containers.The following specifications distinguish our solutions in the segment:
