Gas Services – Mounded Bullets LPG Application

Mounded Bullets LPG Application

Mounded bullets are horizontal pressure vessels which are intended for the pressurized storage of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) under ambient temperature.

LPG is high efficient energy source. LPG is stored under pressure in storage tanks. In Sphere or cylindrical bullets there is cancellation of pressure which coming from all part of spheres. Because of this property of sphere contain more volume of gas.

What is a propane bullet?

Level measurement in propane bullets It is produced from natural gas via a special refining process. Propane is compressed, liquefied and stored in pressure vessels so that it does not return to a gaseous state. To ensure optimal storage, reliable level measurement is required.

What is a mounded LPG tank?

Propane Mounded Tank (horizontal) is used for bulk storage of Propane/LPG. Mounded LPG Bullets are Large, Buried and Horizontal cylindrical steel tanks with dished ends of size ranging between 3.5 to 8.5 diameter and lengths of 35 to 70 meters or more.

What is mounded storage?

Mounded bullets allow storage of large quantities of LPG. Rings. The external pressure of the earth on the vessel needs to be considered in the design. There are 19 internal ‘rings’ inside the bullets which helps to support sustained pressure inside and outside.

Why are bullets cylindrical in shape?

Answer: The magnus effect is absent if the spinning cylinder is moving linearly in the direction parallel to spin axis. That is why the bullets are made cylindrical instead of spherical. They do not deviate from the linear path.

What is mounded vessel?

mounded vessel means a pressure vessel for the storage of flammable liquefied or compressed gas, which is sited above ground and is completely covered by a mound of earth or similar inert material except for nozzles, manhole covers, Inspection covers fitted on the top of the vessel

What is a mounded bullet?

Mounded bullets are horizontal pressure vessels which are intended for the pressurized storage of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) under ambient temperature. In mounded storage facility, a mound of earth or suitable inert material is provided to cover the bullet, which is kept above ground, completely except for nozzles, manhole covers.

Why use LPG storage bullets for construction?

For projects with tight delivery schedules—that can accommodate the land space requirements—LPG storage bullets provide faster time-to-market— and faster time-to-money.
