SCS Bulk Tanks

SCS cryogenic bulk tanks by Auguste Cryogenics are high performance bulk tanks that can be used for a broad spectrum of applications. The SCS tanks are available in vertical and, as HSCS tanks, in horizontal configuration. Available in sizes from 2,000 up to 350,000 litres, all vessels are built to our customer‘s requirements and specifications.

Features of the SCS Cryogenic Bulk Tank line include:

  • Superior vacuum technology for highest thermal performance.
  • All stainless steel piping for strength and corrosion resistance.
  • In-house design and construction of aluminum fin tube pressure-building vaporizers.
  • Updated all stainless steel leg support position is ergonomically designed for compact footprint and easy access to front mounting points.

SCS tanks are stationary, vacuum-insulated pressure vessels for storage of cryogenic liquefied gases such as nitrogen (N2), oxygen (O2), hydrogen (H2) argon (Ar), Liquified Natural Gas (LNG), carbon dioxide (C02), nitrous oxide (N2O) and Ethen (aka Ethylen, C2H4). Carefully selected components and outstanding build quality guarantee a high degree of reliability and longevity of the vessel. The low evaporation rate and the ergonomic layout of instruments and controls ensure economy as well as ease of operation.

The SCS cryogenic bulk tanks are designed and built on the principle of superior vacuum integrity and complete thermal insulation. Our vessels have been in use all around the world for decades and offer superior quality and reliability. Our 12,000m2 production facility is ISO:9001 certified and in compliance with the European Pressure Equipment Directive 2014/68/EU (PED) or to the majority of the pressure vessel codes used in the global marketplace.

SCS cryogenic 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 while the outer container is made from carbon steel. The vessels‘ inner space is filled with high quality insulating material, perlite or multilayer wrap, and then evacuated to the point where virtually zero atmosphere remains. The integrity of the welded joints is checked by leak-testing, using a helium mass spectrometer. This insures long-term vacuum integrity. In addition, sieve material absorbs any off-gassing or moisture that develops over time thus offering highly superior vacuum performance throughout the working life of the vessel.
