single slope bottom tanks single slope bottom tanks liushuo (Mechanical) (OP) 2 Mar 17 09:35 I have questions on single slope bottom tanks, could anybody helps me which foundation style is the optimal for shovel bottom tanks with capacity of 10000 cubic meter? RE: single slope bottom tanks IFRs (Petroleum) 2 Mar 17 20:11 For shovel bottom tanks (single slope from one side to the other) concrete ringwall and concrete slab type are quite common, I have also seen stone ringwall foundations. I'd say almost any style of foundation that could be a cone bottom can be a shovel bottom if the contractor is capable and experienced in such. RE: single slope bottom tanks liushuo (Mechanical) (OP) 3 Mar 17 01:44 Great thanks! I've just seen conical bottom tank on site, could you tell me some places where I may see shovel bottom tanks on site? RE: single slope bottom tanks IFRs (Petroleum) 3 Mar 17 04:39 What country / state / province / city are you close to? Frankly, there is not much to see - they pretty much look like ordinary tanks. It is generally not visible because you can't see very far around the tank and the slope is no different from a normal tank. RE: single slope bottom tanks liushuo (Mechanical) (OP) 3 Mar 17 12:25 Thanks a lot! I'm in Beijing, China. Most place in China I can play a visit to. Besides, America or Canada are also convenient for me as I have relatives and classmates there. I just want to see the connecting part for bottom-wall shell and the foundation style if possible.
