At Industrial Propane Service, Inc. (IPS), we’ve provided construction and service solutions to customers in the propane industry for over 50 years. From distributing and servicing equipment to designing and building facilities, we can meet a variety of industry needs. One of our core offerings is bulk plant design, construction, and servicing.
Bulk plants are facilities used to store bulk liquefied petroleum products before they are distributed to commercial, consumer, and retail markets. While most employ aboveground tanks to store materials, some utilize underground tanks to suit their operational and environmental needs.
Propane tanks can feature a number of connections (e.g., valves, gauges, and other instruments), each of which performs a different function that helps ensure the safety of a tank’s people and processes. Some of the most common connection components include:
They are also available in a variety of sizes and configurations to suit different applications. For example, they can be small or large, horizontal or vertical, and above ground or underground. Regardless of how they are designed, they must adhere to the guidelines set forth by the American Society of Mechanical Engineering (ASME) for the construction of propane vessels in the United States. These guidelines are put in place to ensure the tanks operate efficiently and safely.
In addition to being aware of tank design and construction requirements, bulk plant owners and managers should know and understand the tank safety and compliance requirements regarding installation and use. For example:
There are three key factors to keep in mind when owning or operating a propane bulk plant: safety, efficiency, and longevity. Ensuring your plant has these qualities necessitates focusing on the following:
Regarding all of the above, it is important to keep in mind federal, state, and local regulations. Your plant site should comply with any relevant requirements and restrictions. Additionally, it should meet the minimum standards required by your insurance provider.
