Process Tank & Vessel Fabrication
JNE Welding is experience in fabricating process tanks and vessels for a variety of industries and applications. Process tanks can be designed from anything from large stores of warm water to high pressure and highly corrosive applications. Process tanks can be subject to large temperature differences.
Fabrication of process tanks and vessels is done according to customer design and specifications for pressure, volume, material, and other requirements.
Process Tank Fabrication Experience
JNE Welding has the experience to meet your process tank fabrication needs. We’ve built literally hundreds of different process tanks so far. We’ve built crystallizer tanks as weighing over 120 tons, as long as 80 feet, and up to 33 feet in diameter. We’ve worked with everything from stainless steel to hastelloy. We’ve fabricated process tanks for nearly every stage of potash processing. Our experience includes but is not limited to fabricating:
- Sump Tank
- Flotation Cells
- Water Tanks
- Thickener Overflow Tanks
- Froth Distributors
- Product Tanks
- Brine Tanks
- Sodium Storage Tanks
- Clarifier Thickener Tanks
- Wash Tanks
- Elutriation Legs
- PH Adjustment Tanks
- Pulp Tanks
- Rotary Feed Tanks
- Dedust Oil Holding Tank
- Potash Surge Bins
Field Erected Thickener Tanks Fabrication
JNE’s 77,000 square feet of fabrication shop space has allowed it to fabricate Thickener Tanks in excess of 100’ in diameter. These thickener tanks’ conical floors were scalloped in design to reduce material weight. We met tight tolerances for fabrication of each parts which allowed for smooth on-site assembly. As with this project, we have experience fabricating structural components such as the ones below.
Potash Crystallization Tank Manufacturing
JNE Welding can fabricated crystallization vessels for the potash industry. JNE has the experience and skills to meet your needs. JNE Welding’s 77,000 square feet of fabrication shop allows it to fabricate large crystallization vessels with ease. We also provide on site installation and repair services for faster setup and recovery. With disciplined project management and scheduling processes, JNE provides accurate and timely project reporting ensuring the critical path is maintained and commitments for project delivery are met. Our experience working in the potash industry has allowed us to work with a variety of materials. Some of which, require very strict adherence to tight weld parameters.
About Potash Crystallization
Potash crystallization involves taking dissolved potash out of a brine solution. Crystallization process is aided by brines with saturated levels of potash. The crystallization tank generally cools the brine to allow for the potassium chloride to form high purity crystals. Crystallization is used for applications requiring industrial grade potash or specialty fertilizer grade (white muriate) potash. It is also used as a side process for recovery of fine potash byproducts of the crushing and scrubbing.
Potash Evaporation Tanks
JNE Welding can fabricated evaporation tanks for the potash processing industry. JNE has the experience and skills to meet your needs. JNE Welding’s 77,000 square feet of fabrication shop allows it to fabricate large evaporation tanks with ease. We also provide on site installation and repair services for faster setup and recovery. With disciplined project management and scheduling processes, JNE provides accurate and timely project reporting ensuring the critical path is maintained and commitments for project delivery are met. Our experience working in the potash industry has allowed us to work with a variety of materials. For these projects we’ve adhered to tight weld parameters.
Potash Evaporation Fabrication Experience
JNE Welding works with OEM for the mining industry to fabricate mining and processing equipment for the potash industry. JNE Welding is experienced in producing evaporator tanks for the potash mining industry. Saskatchewan is home to some of the largest deposits of potash which has given JNE Welding the opportunity to fabricate large evaporators.
About Potash Evaporation
Potash evaporator tanks are used to increase the concentration of potassium chloride in the brine to saturation. This process is generally used to remove other chemicals such as sodium chloride and increase the concentration of the desire material. Successive evaporators are often employed to remove water. Generally, evaporators are used prior to crystallization tanks. Evaporators are common in solution mining operations to remove excess water used in the extraction process.
JNE has experience welding:
- Carbon steel
- Stainless steel
- Duplex stainless
- Super duplex
- Chromium carbide
- and more.
All stainless-steel fabrications are pickled and/or passivated.
