Rane Ring Vapor Bladder Tanks

R. A. Nichols Engineering has been designing and installing RANE Rings successfully since 1978 using the highest qualiity materials and time tested installation procedures. The Truncated Cone type Vapor Bladder has become the industry standard for low pressure Vapor Storage for many industries. The benefits of installing a RANE Ring at your facility include:

  • Increase Loading Capacity and Daily Throughput     
  • Reduce or eliminate assist gas to your Vapor Combustion Unit  
  • Can be installed in most existing vertical storage tanks     
  • Can handle any type of vapor or gas up to 600° F     
  • Reduce Volume and Pressure Back Spikes in the system     
  • Alleviate Process upset Conditions
  • Provide Maintenance Time and Operational Flexibility to Vapor Collection Systems

The most cost effective way to add vapor storage to an existing facility is to convert into an existing liquid storage tank to a RANE Ring Vapor Bladder tank. If no existing tank is available to convert a bladder tank then a new tank can be field erected and a bladder installed on-site or a shop built tank can be delivered with the bladder already installed.
