Cryogenic storage tanks are used to store liquified natural gases (LNG), liquid oxygen or nitrogen for chemical and combustion processes.
They can vary in capacity however they are mostly cylindrical in construction with dished ends and are either horizontal or vertical. They are constructed from stainless steel and carbon steel and contain insulation. The liquefied gases are stored at extremely low temperatures under pressure. Manufacturers and suppliers of cryogenic storage tanks and equipment include BOC and Linde.
