Since 1942 Strommasina Corp. has been successfully producing equipment for the mining, building, oil and gas, as well as road, metallurgical industries.

Designing and installing tanks and vessels

For absolutely any industries, based on both standard and customised designs. Tanks and vessels (walls, bottom and roof) can be manufactured using several methods: scrolling or sheet-by-sheet method. The first method reduces installation period by factor of 4 due to small amount of welding operations on site. The second method is sheet-by-sheet assembly of walls and bottom.

Tank designing is the main component in manufacture of high-quality, safe and durable tanks. The design correctness will influence preservation of properties of the product which will be stored in the tank.

Steel tank designing includes the following stages:

  • acquisition of information and necessary data;

  • graphical design;

  • preliminary cost estimation;

  • designing;

  • and the last and the most important stage is designer supervision. It allows detecting any errors.

The design itself contains the following information:

  • general data;

  • information about the substance being stored: characteristics, storage conditions, fire and explosion hazard rating, material used for manufacture;

  • steel grade;

  • tank designing peculiarities.

Tank installation

Tanks are classified into three categories, depending on their volume and location:

  • extra hazardous – volume exceeds 10,000 m³, located near large water bodies and within the

  • urban development limits;

  • extra hazardous — volume of 5000 to 10,000 m3;

  • extra hazardous — volume of 100 to 5,000 m3.

Before commencement of tank installation some activities are performed to ensure safety and normal work procedure:

  • marking of installation zone with warning signs (GOST 23407-78);

  • equipping site entrances (at least two);

  • preparation of a site for operation of mechanisms, compaction of soil at locations where they operate;

  • deployment of temporary premises (production rooms, amenity rooms, metal structure warehouses);

  • utilities connection;

  • carrying out foundation and base works.

The manufacture method can be scrolled or sheet-by-sheet technique, and bottom can be either flat or conical – data shall be provided by customer. The tank installation comprises the following work procedure:

  • bottom installation;

  • tank walls installation;

  • installation of roof (sheet, conical framework or conical type);

  • installation of stairs (shaft or annular type).

Then the tank is cleaned, anti-corrosion coating is applied, and tank equipment is installed, different systems and pipelines are connected.

The Samara Strommashina plant manufactures industrial equipment and metal structures. Each product type is manufactured in accordance with all established quality standards and specifications. Only high-quality and high-strength materials are used during production. It ensures not only long service life, but also reliability of all devices.
