About The Project

Buttimer Engineering was employed to design and manufacture a 7,500 litre Storage Tank based on our client’s specifications. The bio-waste system upgrade tank had to be capable of collecting liquid bio-waste with entrapped vapours and gases from bioprocessing equipment including pressurised equipment blowdowns. This meant preparing mechanical calculations in accordance with ASME Section VIII Division 1 for the pressure envelope of the Storage Tank.
The Scope of Work included, but was not limited to:

  • Design of steel saddle supports
  • Design of lifting attachments
  • Design of vessel shell and dished heads for internal and external pressure
  • Opening reinforcement in vessel walls
  • Design of agitator nozzle for cyclic loads imposed by the agitator operation
