Apache is a custom manufacturer of tanks and vessels. Due to our customized offering, we want to provide the exact vessel you need; and that might lead to many questions and back and forth responses. If you don't have a specification list, here are 5 recommendations for you to determine when ordering a tank.
1. Determine pressures and temperatures. The design criteria, pressures and temperature requirements will impact material grades, thicknesses, compatibility of fittings and components, and elastomer selection. The following items may help to determine pressures and temperatures.
2. Determine type of certification required. It is advantageous to identify the types of certification and documentation (turn-over packets) that will be required for planning purposes. The following are common requested certificates.
The Small / Portable Vessel group produces specialized ASME vessels that customers need for their extremely regulated processes. Apache manufactures custom mix tanks, storage tanks, jacketed vessels, heat exchange surfaces, extraction equipment.
Apache offers engineering and 3D modeling to the customer's design conditions and ASME requirements for each vessel project. We have a dedicated quality and compliance team that focuses on verification, testing, and compliance documentation.
