Industrial pipelines engineering design
- We take into consideration all input data and tasks
- We provide maximum efficiency of product transfer operations
- We reduce pipeline construction expenses using less pipelines thanks to process optimization
- We extend the tanks life by applying the system of tank walls pressure reduction during unloading and loading operations.
Pipelines are designed for acceptance and distribution of stored products, along with supplementary operations like product pump-over, relief of pipeline surge relief system, etc.
Pipeline diameters are chosen by the Project Designer on the basis of required efficiency of acceptance and delivery operations, product viscosity and recommended pumping speed.
The project design features methods of pipeline connection with master valves, tank pipe junctions and load compensators. The pipeline laying method is chosen – above ground or underground, taking into consideration among other things earthquake activity in the construction area. If needed, heating systems, heat insulation and pipeline protection are designed.
When designing TB for tank farms, oil refinery plants and other enterprises, total pipeline emptying by gravity flow must be provided by means of making a pitch in the direction of the pumping-out spot. The pitch is calculated with due regard to product viscosity and its heating system.
