Online Cylindrical Shape Pressure Tank Head and Shell Thickness Calculator
Heads are 2:1 Semi Elliptical
(Vessels are built in accordance with the requirements of the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code.)
Definitions: Outside Diameter: The width of the cylinder. Design Pressure: The maximum allowable working pressure or the pressure at the safety relief valve will open. Corrosion Allowance: The extra thickness is added to the minimum material wall thickness to compensate for the expected loss over the lifetime of the vessel. Allowable Material Stress: The maximum allowable stress which is the tensile stress divided with 3.5 safety factor. Min. Mat. Th. R.T.: The minimum required material thickness at Radiographic Testing level No, 3 or 2.
