Flat bottom or vacuum insulated tanks?

Author(s) : CHRZ V., KRIVAN J., ZARUBA P., et al.


Flat bottom tanks have been widely used for medium size storage of cryogenic gases like oxygen, nitrogen and liquefied natural gas (LNG). Progress in design of vacuum insulated tanks opens new opportunities of their application for sizes 500 m3 and more per tank. Use of several vacuum insulated tanks at the same plant can still result in lower project costs and other advantages, analysis of which is subject of this paper.
