AUGUST CRYOGENICS offers a range of cryogenic bulk tanks - the high performance SCS range - which can be used for a variety of applications. Our SCS range shows following features:

• All piping in stainless steel for strength and improved appearance.
• Pressure-building vaporisers made from aluminium fin tubes.
• Two separate penetration plates to avoid ice formation.
• Lifting lugs and foot plates in stainless steel to avoid corrosion.
• Positioning of feet within the diameter of the tank.
• Foot mounting point accessible from outside the tank, to ensure ease of installation.

SCS tanks are stationary, vacuum-insulated pressure vessels for storage of cryogenic liquefied gases such as nitrogen, oxygen, argon, LNG, C02 or NO2. Low evaporation rate, ergonomic layout of instruments and controls for ease of use, carefully selected components and outstanding build quality ensure a high degree of reliability and economy in everyday use and guarantee the longevity of the vessel.

Vessels are available in vertical or horizontal configurations, sized from 2,200 to 150,000 litres, and are manufactured and tested according to the European Pressure Equipment Directive 97/23 CE (PED) or to the regulations of other countries.

Our vessels have been in use world wide for decades. High quality is ensured by measures including a quality management system complying ISO 9001.

SCS bulk tanks consist of an inner and an outer vessel. The inner vessel, which is suspended concentrically in the outer vessel, is used for storage of cryogenic liquefied gases and is manufactured from stainless steel materials. The outer container is made from carbon steel. The space between the vessels is filled with high quality perlite and evacuated. The integrity of the welded joints is checked by leak-testing, using a helium mass spectrometer. This ensures long-term vacuum maintenance. In addition, a molecular sieve absorbs remaining molecules to improve and maintain the vacuum during the working life of the vessel. These vessels can also be supplied to customer's design requirements or specifications.
