Vessels for America

The global positioning of BUTTING is convincing more and more consumers: recently, the family business was given an order from a US customer who received technical support from BUTTING Canada. BUTTING Anlagenbau in Schwedt/Germany, our expert unit for the construction of vessels and pipes, took on the production of the six vessels.

For decades, vessel, tanks and apparatus made by BUTTING have been proving their worth in a large number of industries and met a wide variety of requirements. The storage tanks for this project were produced for a customer from the chemical industry. They are used in Texas for the storage of liquid chemicals.

The tanks were made from the material TP 304L according to the American standard API 650, and were made in one piece. Due to the large dimensions, the tanks weighed between 2.5 and 5.5 metric tonnes. For shipping, the containers were mounted on flat racks and loaded into containers. Markus Hahn, Managing Director of BUTTING Canada, says: “We are proud that BUTTING, thanks to its very good performance and quality, is also competitive in the US market for vessel and tanks.” He adds: “Through the affiliated companies of the BUTTING Group with their production sites all over the world, we also offer our customers a wide variety of benefits: the expertise of a market leader, tailor-made product solutions and efficient communication. The complete package impresses many companies worldwide.”

BUTTING manufactures stainless steel vessel, tanks and apparatus according to customer specifications, either in several sections or in one piece. The latter not only offers higher quality, but also has clear economic benefits for our customers. BUTTING can produce vessels up to 16 m in height and 6,000 mm in diameter in one piece.
