STANDARD PROFILES

ASME Semi Elliptical Head (SE), 2:1 Semi-Elliptical

MARKS ASME – ELIPTICAL (2:1 RATIO) HEAD

 

 

 

 

ASME – ELIPTICAL (2:1 RATIO)

A 2:1 elliptical tank head is fabricated to have a certain shape instead of a particular dish radius or knuckle radius. The dish radius is approximately 90% of the diameter and the knuckle radius is approximately 17% of the diameter. 2:1 elliptical flanged and dished polished heads are ASME compliant.

HEAD DIMENSIONS AND SPECIFICATIONS
Diameter 32” to 64”
Dish Radius Approximately 90% of O.D.
Knuckle Radius Approximately 17% of O.D.
Thickness 10 gauge to 1/2”

 

ASME Semi Elliptical Head (SE), 1.9:1 Elliptical

MARKS ASME – ELIPTICAL (1.9:1 RATIO) HEAD

 

ASME – ELIPTICAL (1.9:1 RATIO)

A 1.9:1 elliptical tank head is fabricated to have a certain shape instead of a particular dish radius or knuckle radius. The dish radius is approximately 86% of the diameter and the knuckle radius is approximately 19% of the diameter. 2:1 elliptical flanged and dished polished heads are ASME compliant.

HEAD DIMENSIONS AND SPECIFICATIONS
Diameter 30” to 58”
Dish Radius Approximately 86% of O.D.
Knuckle Radius Approximately 19% of O.D.
Thickness 10 gauge to 1/2”

 

ASME Torispherical Head (F&D), 80-10

MARKS ASME Torispherical Head (F&D), 80-10

 

ASME – Flanged & Dished Polished Heads

As the inside diameter formed heads increases in size, savings in material cost can be achieved by designing 80-10 Torispherical heads rather than standard ASME Torispherical or Ellipsoidal shapes. It features a dish radius equal to 80% of the diameter, and an inside knuckle radius equal to 10% of the head diameter.

The 80-10 is typically only 66% the thickness of the ASME Torispherical.

HEAD DIMENSIONS AND SPECIFICATIONS
Diameter 30” to 124”
Dish Radius Approximately 80% of O.D.
Knuckle Radius Approximately 10% of O.D.
Thickness 10 gauge to 1/2”

 

ASME Torispherical Head (F&D), 100%

 

MARKS ASME Torispherical Head (F&D), 100%

 

ASME – Flanged & Dished Polished Heads

Commonly used for ASME pressure vessels, these torispherical heads have a crown radius equal to the outside diameter of the head, and a knuckle radius equal to 6% of the outside diameter.  The ASME design code does not allow the knuckle radius to be any less than 6% of the outside diameter.

HEAD DIMENSIONS AND SPECIFICATIONS
Diameter 30” to 124”
Dish Radius Approximately 100% of O.D.
Knuckle Radius Approximately 6% of O.D.
Thickness 10 gauge to 1/2”

Commonly used for ASME pressure vessels, these torispherical heads have a crown radius equal to 90% of the outside diameter of the head, and a knuckle radius equal to 8% of the outside diameter.  The ASME design code does not allow the knuckle radius to be any less than 8% of the outside diameter.

HEAD DIMENSIONS AND SPECIFICATIONS
Diameter 30” to 124”
Dish Radius Approximately 90% of O.D.

MARKS Standard Head (F&D), non-ASME

MARKS Standard Head (F&D), non-ASME

 

non-ASME – Flanged & Dished Polished Heads

MARKS standard heads are used in many of our beverage and food service tanks.  This custom profile is not a ASME standard but serves beverage tank needs well.  These torispherical heads have a crown radius equal to 100% of the outside diameter of the head, and a knuckle radius approximately equal to 5% of the outside diameter.

HEAD DIMENSIONS AND SPECIFICATIONS
Diameter 30” to 124”
Dish Radius Approximately 100% of O.D.
Knuckle Radius Approximately 5% of O.D.
Thickness 10 gauge to 1/2”
