In many industries nowadays Omega Pillow Plates are used to heat or cool tanks. Pillow Plates have a higher heat transfer speed and are often cheaper in production because no post-processing needs to take place. In addition, thinner materials can be used with Pillow Plates than with half-pipe tank walls or double-sided constructions.
Material parts of a tank that you want to heat or cool using Pillow Plates, can be ordered or delivered. Your tank plates are welded by our laser welding machines, after which you can roll them in the desired shape.
After installing the tank, the Pillow Plates are inflated.
Half pipe / Dubbele wand tanks
From time immemorial tanks that need to be heated or cooled, were given a double wall. Later on, more and more half pipe constructions were used. These days, most newly built tanks are covered with Pillow Plates.
Space requirements play an important role in tank construction. Compared to half pipe constructions, you can save up to 1/3 of space with Omega Pillow Plates. In addition, it is easier to make a recess (for example for a manhole) in the jacket of the tank in the desired location.
Lower production costs because less man hours are required
Less material costs because it can be welded with thinner materials
No post-processing (grinding) of the inner tank required
Significantly higher heat transfer coefficient
Tank plates for all industries
Our Omega Pillow Plates are used in the food industry for the production of milk, beer, wine, drinks and cocoa tanks. But also in pressure tanks in the chemical and pharmaceutical industry. Omega Pillow Plates tank plates are suitable for every tank that needs to be heated or cooled.
