Aegis-2K has extensive consultancy experience in the design, analysis and construction and commissioning of storage tanks used in the petrochemical, power, processing and nuclear industries. Some of the capabilities of Aegis 2k in the area of storage tanks are listed as follows:
Design, analysis and rerating of large Storage Tanks based on API-650.
Design, analysis and rerating of low pressure Storage Tanks based on API-620.
Calculations and recommendations for repairs, alterations or replacement of existing storage tanks and storage tank components per API- 653.
Re-rating of existing storage tanks for a new set of design parameters.
Calculation of minimum retirement thickness values for existing storage tanks / storage tank components to maximize the remaining safe and useful life.
Maximum fill height calculation for tanks where tank walls have corrosion or where higher than design density fluids a are to be stored.
Fitness-for-service evaluation of storage tanks with differential settlement of the tank bottoms. This includes edge settlement and internal bottom settlement / bulges.
Fitness-for-service evaluation of Storage tanks to calculate MSOT (Minimum safe operating temperature) and address brittle fracture considerationsÂ Fitness-for-service evaluation of tank roofs of Storage tanks (When roofs show signs of excessive deformation due to excessive loading e.g. snow loading) along with recommendations for repair.
Fitness-for-service evaluations for storage tanks to assure the structural integrity of equipment for the intended design parameters and to offer life extension considerations.
Failure Analysis to identify the root cause of failure for the failed storage tanks or storage tank components. Finite Element Analysis for storage tanks or storage tank components.
Storage tank certification, calculations and rating / re-rating for storage tanks that do not contain sufficient design information in their files.
Analysis to assure Mechanical Integrity of storage tanks for following type of flaws:Â Generalized corrosion, Localized corrosion / Thinning, Blisters, Laminations, Bulges, Gouges, Dents, Cracks etc.
