Blanket gas application is developed to calculate required blanket gas (inert gas) volume and flow need to maintain above the tank vapor space. Application is designed according to API 2000 standard. Multiple design of tanks are provided to be selected by users and database of most common liquid types are enlisted in the application to be evaluated. User need to provide necessary information of the type of liquid stored in the tank and tank dimensions then application will calculate required blanket gas flow at operating temperature and pressure. Also, mass flow and volumetric flow at standard conditions are determined at the same time. Most common type of blanket gases are provided to be selected by user. Application also designed to validate the vendor’s valve to size and evaluate the efficacy if equipped on the tank for required service. Help on tank blanket gas set pressure is also provided for the ease of user to convert and calculate the required set pressure. Application warns the user for all possible errors and incorrect input parameters. User can print or save the results in PDF file.
Users are prompted about the limitations of the programs in the message bar on the screen.
