Six Steps to Designing a Storage Vessels That Really Works

Jenike. Have you experience delays in starting up a new processing system? Or is your existing or new processing system performing poorly? Often the main culprit is a poorly designed storage vessel – such as a bin, silo or hopper – somewhere in the system. An improperly designed storage vessel is also more likely to fail structurally than other plant equipment and is more prone to dust explosions or fires and to realizing hazardous emissions.

These problems produce unsafe conditions for your workers and the community surrounding your plant.  What leads to improper vessel design? One cause is considering your vessel design after other system equipment has been selected. Another common mistake is designing the vessel without fully investigating your material’s flow properties. Knowing your material’s name, bulk density, particle size, distribution, and angle of response just isn’t enough. Relying on your past experiences in selecting storage vessels can also lead to a poor vessel design. Designing a storage vessel for your plant requires a methodical approach. This white paper outlines six steps to follow in designing, installing and starting up a storage vessel that successfully handles your bulk material under your operating conditions.
