Guide to Storage Tanks and Equipment has been designed to provide practical information about all aspects of the design, selection and use of vertical cylindrical storage tanks. Other tanks are covered but in less detail. Although the emphasis is on practical information, basic theory is also covered. Guide to Storage Tanks and Equipment is a practical reference book written for specifiers, designers, constructors and users of ambient and low temperature storage tanks. The book is aimed at everyone who has technical problems as well as those wanting to know more about all aspects of tank technology and also those who want to know who supplies what, and from where. Steel storage tanks are an important and costly part of oil refineries, terminals, chemical plants and power stations. They should function efficiently and be trouble free at their maximum storage capacity to ensure that these installations can have their planned maximum production capacity.
