need design calculation of air tank

(OP)
Dear Team Member .

I am design Engineer and ,I want to design a horizontal storage air tank of operating pressure in 200 bar.
please suggest me .how to calculate design of this tank .I want to use this tank in my workshop for pressure safety valve testing purpose .This tank will be connected to the booster pump .


please give suggestion .

I am waiting of your response .

Thank you

RE: need design calculation of air tank

The 200 bar pressure of an "Air Tank" is actually a pressure vessel. The ASME Code Section VIII Div.1 can be used for the design and fabrication for your "tank".

RE: need design calculation of air tank

Best solution: Locate a fabricator that routinely does this kind of work (including work at similar pressures) and buy the tank complete from them.
You can buy some small bottles/tanks in that pressure range ready-made, if those would fulfill your needs. It looks like they are used for paintball guns, breathing apparatus, etc.
The basic calculations for the tank thickness is not that involved, but the requirements for nozzle reinforcing, toughness requirements, etc., get more involved. A tank of this pressure is highly hazardous if it ruptures, so not something to learn on.

RE: need design calculation of air tank

We're not part of your team and don't be inpatient " waiting for your response"

The posters above are correct. Design it yourself with no experience and you will likely die when the"tsnk" explodes.

Remember - More details = better answers
Also: If you get a response it's polite to respond to it.

This tank is so small that one would not "design" the tank, but purchase one that has been already designed and prefabricated.

However, before ordering an air tank, you have to first determine the process requirements so that the tank may be sized:

eBook - Rethink Your PLM
A lot has changed since the 90s. You don't surf the Web using dial-up anymore, so why are you still using a legacy PLM solution that's blocking your ability to innovate? To develop and launch products today, you need a flexible, cloud-based PLM, not a solution that's stuck in the past. Download Now
White Paper - Using Virtualization for IVI and AUTOSAR Consolidation on an ECU
Current approaches used to tackle the complexities of a vehicle’s electrical and electronics (E/E) architecture are both cost prohibitive and lacking in performance. Utilizing virtualization in automotive software architecture provides a better approach. This can be achieved by encapsulating different heterogeneous automotive platforms inside virtual machines running on the same hardware. Download Now
