Body and heads are manufactured from P355 quality, fine grain pressure vessel steel according to EN10028-3 standard. Metallurgical and mechanical properties of steels are tested and verified.
All welded joints are tested according to the manufacturing standard. A combination of X-ray, ultrasonic, dye penetrant and magnetic particle tests are utilized.
After manufacturing, all tanks are subjected to a hydrostatic pressure test. After this test, the connections of tank accessories are tested against leaks, using nitrogen.
Tanks are sandblasted and coated with premium quality paints.
