Pressurized Systems

Project Photos – Pressure Vessels – Ice Ball Thermal Storage Tanks

•    Horizontal or Vertical Pressure Vessels to fit available space.
•    Highest quality ASME Code Vessels filled with Ice Balls.
•    Above Grade – or –  Directly Buried with Vehicle Traffic Above – Indoor or Outdoors

Horizontal Vessels – Retrofit in older historic building

Six tanks selected to fit mechanical room space. 5,300 ton hours – pressurized

Industrial Clean Room Application

Vertical Pressure Vessels 12 feet in diameter – 24 feet tall Vertical configuration keeps tank area small.

Tanks remain below roof line and are finished with aesthetic enclosure.




Retrofit of Existing Water Storage Tanks – Data Center


Existing tanks modified for Ice Ball thermal storage 2,100 ton hours (notice snow on the ground in cold climate)

Retrofit of chilled water tanks increases capacity by factor of 4 or 5.

Aircraft PCA Cooling




Clean, simple installation below concourse and jetway.

Delivers fluid at 20 F to jetway fan coils for low temperature air.


Tank selection relies on available space and imagination.
