• Offshore Bulk Transport Vessels

    Our bulk cement transport vessel-skid assembly’s purpose is for convenient transportation of bulk materials to offshore drilling locations. We have two pressure vessel models currently available, with 130- and 220-ft³ capacities. Our pressure vessels are mounted to a skid with an enveloping lift frame, and the bulk material is loaded and discharged pneumatically.

    Description

    Our skid-mounted bulk cement transport vessels are designed in accordance with DNV Standard for Certification No. 2.7-1, but may be certified to other customer specifications. The pressure vessel is also designed meeting the requirements of ASME Sec VIII, Div. 1, current Edition, and for registration with the National Board of Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspectors.

    This vessel comes complete with 5-in. fill, vent, and discharge ports in the side of the tank, as well as a 20-in. Wilco™ manway in the vessel cone. A 3-in. connection in the side of the tank feeds a set of aeration jets in the center of the tank for pressurization. Other aeration methods may be specified by the customer.
