Linde Engineering has supplied more than 20,000 cryogenic tanks for liquefied gases since 1960, delivering highest quality standard designs as well as individual solutions tailored to the most demanding customer requirements.
Liquefied gases are used in a wide range of applications, including metal processing, medical technology, electronics, water treatment, energy generation and the food industry. Today, more and more of these industrial gases are being delivered to customers in liquid form at cryogenic temperatures, enabling them to be stored on site for later use.
The tanks range in capacity from 3,000 to > 100,000 litres and come with standardised working pressures of 18, 22, or 36 bar respectively.
Our tanks can be used for a wide range of applications. They are standardised to ensure smooth distribution logistics and cost-efficient series production and also comply with the European Pressure Equipment Directive (PED) or ASME VIII, Div. 1. LITS tanks (Leading International Tank Standard).
Each tank is vacuum-insulated and can be delivered as a vertical or horizontal installation. The inner vessels and piping are made of stainless steel to ensure high-grade cleanliness – particularly important for the food and electronics industry. The outside shell is specially coated and a vacuum-perlite system with a molecular sieve adsorbent is applied to ensure outstanding insulation.
