View Full Version : How to calculate an agitated vessel?

26th Sep '09, 04:03

I'm workin on a ethanol-water mixer, and i need to calculate the thickness of the vessel, weldments, and all that stuff.

I looked into the ASME code, but ir for boilers and tanks with gas inside. And I work with two liquids.

I looked into the API code but is form huge tanks, and I only have a small tank of 1000 litres.

Plz Help me!!!

I take it the vessel will hold pressure? I'm surprised you didnt find anything in ASME pressure vessels. What pressures are you expecting to reach? I've gone as high as 150ksi on a 1 liter vessel. I wouldnt imagine you are anywhere near that.
