The 2:1 elliptical tank heads are used extensively for liquefied petroleum gas tanks, air receivers and other pressure vessels. For this type of head, the depth of tank head is one-quarter of the vessel’s internal diameter. With its reduced metal thickness, elliptical tank heads offer an economic solution for medium-pressure tanks. These can be formed from:

  • Carbon steel
  • Stainless steel
