Agitators for Storage Tanks (Crude and Refined Oil)

The storage of crude oil is the beginning of the process in the petrochemical industry. During this storage, mixing tasks such as BS&W (Basic Sediment & Water), heat transfer and homogenization have to be performed. With our know-how in the field of side-entry agitators, supported by CFD analyses (Computational Fluid Dynamics), EKATO offers fixed and swiveling agitators, which enable efficient and highly effective recirculation.

…and EKATO is at the mix in terms of mobility, heat, petrochemicals, lubricants and bitumen.

In oil storage tanks, EKATO relies on proven technology and can build on more than 85 years of experience. On request, the design can also be confirmed by CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) numerical flow simulation.

For mixing tasks like effective mixing of crude oil considering and controlling the sand and water content, BS&W (bottom sludge and water / base sediment and water), mixing of different crude oils, a constant temperature distribution in the tank or for the mixing of refined oils, EKATO provides the appropriate solutions.

The swiveling EKATO side-entry agitator for crude oil storage tanks is a compact, state-of-the-art technology. It uses a single or double mechanical seal system according to API 682, modified for agitators. It represents a reliable solution for the oil and petrochemical industry. Manual adjustment on site or automatic positioning in the process control system (PCS) are available options to swivel the agitator.

The upward buoyancy generated by the mixing stream in crude oil storage tanks keeps the controlled sand and water content (BS&W) in motion to counteract local accumulation and possible build-up of deposits on the tank bottom. In order to reach the entire surface of the tank bottom, one or more swiveling side-entry agitators are used, depending on the tank size. The optimum alignment at the vessel wall is the decisive factor for trouble-free operation of the plant. Impeller stream length and pumping capacity determine the required number of agitators per tank. The swiveling EKATO side-entry agitator has been designed as a complete unit, which allows assembly and disassembly on the vessel in the assembled state.
Optimal Plant Operation
The decisive factors for trouble-free operation of the agitators are:

  • Optimal alignment at the vessel wall
  • Impeller stream length
  • Pumping capacity of the impeller

Our operational experience in the field of side-entry agitators, together with computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations, allows us to determine the optimum number and orientation of agitators around the tank circumference. Reliable, easy-to-maintain, and economical operation are the main benefits based on our knowledge and know-how of side-entry agitators.
