What are the different types of jacketed tanks?
Wednesday, October 31, 2018

Even if you have worked tirelessly to regulate the temperature of a room, or if you require materials to be stored at different temperatures in the same room, you likely need a jacketed tank. The jackets serve as insulators for whatever you’re placing in the tank and can greatly improve efforts to regulate temperatures. But it’s important to know that there are also different types of jackets that serve different purposes:

Dimpled Jacketing

Dimpled jacket tanks are excellent for uses that don’t require drastic temperature changes. The dimpling of the outer jacket serves to reduce weight, required wall thickness, and cost. Due to their thinner layers though, they can’t be used for processes involving thermal shock.

Half-Pipe Jacketing

Great for large tank applications, these are generally used for high-temperature applications. The piping sits on the outside of the tank and allows for temperature controlling fluid or gas to flow around the contents of the tank without directly interacting with it (such as cooling water, steam, or hot oil).

Conventional (Double Wall) Jacketing

While this is the heaviest and thickest option, conventional double wall jacketing is still extremely useful for heating and cooling flexibility. This is due to the ability to section conventional jacketing into zones, but you can still have uniform coverage across the entire tank if necessary.

Whatever your need, Buckeye Fabricating can provide fully customized tanks for your specific needs. If you’re unsure about what kind of tank you need, our experts can help you choose the correct tank and jacketing method.
