2:1 Elliptical Heads
2:1 Elliptical Tank Heads
More Volume, Same Diameter
Fabricated by Shape
A 2:1 elliptical tank head is made based on a certain shape rather than a specific dish or knuckle radius.
These heads can be spin-polished for sanitary applications and design.
2:1 elliptical heads are ideal for pressure vessels such as liquified petroleum gas tanks, air receivers, and more.
Assembly with heat can be provided, which helps maintain the strength of the metal to meet code requirements and ensure long-lasting performance.
These 2:1 elliptical tank heads are made from carbon steel, stainless steel, and other ferrous and non-ferrous metals and alloys.
Inside Dish Radius
Approximately 80% of diameter (See ASME Section VIII, Division I, UG-32 for clarification)
