In industry, agriculture and communities, the proper storage and processing of solids and liquids places extremely demanding requirements on tanks – especially where problematic or aggressive substances are concerned.
The LIPP-System – the only one of its kind in the world
The LIPP-System is based on a simple yet ingenious tank construction principle that is the only one of its kind in the world. Steel coils, machines and accessories are transported to the building site where the tank is then constructed – the process is fast, efficient and flexible in terms of tank height and diameter. A profile is formed from steel strip by means of an automated two-step procedure. During the second step, the profile layers are joined together while the tank continues to grow upwards in a spiral. The steel strip can be tightly joined both using the LIPP Double-Seam System and also the LIPP welding technique, while ensuring stability.
The benefits of the LIPP-System
The LIPP® thermal storage tank is the tailored thermal storage solution for renewable energies with an effective volume ranging from 200 to 2,000 m3 which is suitable for individual customisation.
Expedient thermal storage is a prerequisite for the effective utilisation of heat from biogas plants, biomass cogeneration plants, solar plants or other heat sources. The flexible-capacity LIPP® buffer storage tank provides the ideal solution for this application. The tanks are fabricated on site using the tried and tested LIPP® Double-Seam System and the stainless steel VERINOX®.
Insulation can be tailored to the intended application in order to produce large-volume, above-ground storage tanks with an individually customised interior. The tanks are designed for non-pressurised operation with an operating temperature of up to 95 °C and are suitable for use with heating water. No additional nitrogen system necessary.
The LIPP® Thermal Storage Tank is a customized solution to effectively store excessive heat from biogas plants, biomass heating plants, solar plants or other heat sources.
The carbon steel tanks are fabricated on site with the patented automated LIPP® Welding Technology. The horizontal MAW-welding process enables the infinitely variable production of tanks up to 6,000 m³ volume with horizontal welding only.
The large-volume, above ground storage tanks are fitted with all necessary safety and operation equipment. Additional, individual components according to client’s specification can be considered. The roof and wall insulation is individually adapted to local conditions.
The LIPP® Thermal Storage Tanks operate at atmospheric pressure, at a temperature of up to 95° C and are suitable for use with heating water. No additional nitrogen system necessary.
