Modeling & Detailing

Tanks & Vessels

Versatile, Streamlined Tank and Vessel Detailing

Experienced in the process design and layout of complex industrial plants, DBM Vircon offers solutions to support all phases of the project lifecycle, from conceptual design through to the management of the assets.

Our tank and vessel solutions form part of what is a complete suite of integrated, multi-disciplinary solutions, offered across all industries and sectors. Our collaborative, multi-platform approach ensures maximum collaboration and productivity with the common goal of zero rework.

Our tank and vessel designers have extensive experience in the design, fabrication and construction phases of a project. Utilizing our experience and the latest integrated software solutions and processes, we deliver a quality, cost-effective service for a wide variety of industrial process storage solutions.

Tanks & Vessels – Design to Manufacture

VERSATILE 2D AND 3D DOCUMENTATION

Our technology allows you to reduce labour costs through automatic design calculations, generation of complete dets of fabrication drawings, bills of materials, CNC drawings and more.

MODEL GENERATED DELIVERABLES

Create 3D models of existing tanks using laser scans, which replicate their exact conditions. Laser scanning is also able to perform settlement analyses, verticality and out of roundness analyses.

MULTI-DISCIPLINE INTEGRATION

By integrating design, drafting, purchasing, quality control, fabrication and inspection into one program, a wide variety of tanks and vessels can be produced to a superior specification.

CORROSION INSPECTION & INTEGRITY ANALYSIS

The integration of data and components ensures clashes are avoided. For example, it ensures roof nozzles, manways and vents do not sit above rafters or girders, saving time and money on rework.

FULL DIGITAL ENGINEERING (BIM) CAPABILITY

Our technology allows you to generate accurate quotes and designs for clients in a matter of hours, which can increase customer satisfaction, aid in winning project bids and expedite timeframes.

VIRTUAL ASSEMBLY & SCAN TO BIM VALIDATION

The nano-precision and integration of our models means you are able to validate accuracy and completeness between point cloud data and 3D design, eliminating RFIs, delays and reworks.

Tanks & Vessels Modeling & Detailing – Delivery

DBM Vircon’s Approach

Our tank design and detailing team use a combination of AME Tank, Plant 3D and Advance Steel to deliver a wide range of tank and vessel deliverables, most commonly designed and developed to API 650, API 620 and AWWA D100. Working closely and collaboratively with our clients, we offer a full range of services suited to process and storage infrastructure.

  • NC, DXF and scribing outputs
Enhanced Services

Laser Scan, Virtual Assembly and Geometric Validation

Accurate as built 3D records of fabricated items can confirm the quality of fabrication and geometric conformance prior to delivery to site and following installation. This can help reduce time, costs and risks associated with traditional physical trial assembly as well as acting as a record of quality at the time of shipment.

We offer a number of laser back scan modeling solutions across all disciplines. These solutions have many applications and can provide accurate existing condition modeling where integration to existing plant is required, as well as a number of geometric verification and validation options when using point clouds for virtual trial assembly and tolerance reporting.
