Mar 2017 : Bar systems for liquid gas tanks

In the United Arab Emirates, Dextra recently delivered a new Oil and Gas project. Dextra tension rods have been used for the support of structure supporting very large liquid gas tanks.

For this application, Dextra engineered, manufactured and delivered bar assemblies based on Carbon Steel bars Gr.355 of diameter Ø120mm. Each tension bar system is composed of two segments spliced at the lower half of the assembly. The system is mounted onto gusset plates thanks to their fork ends, which can be connected to the structure in just a few minutes by simply sliding in a pin in the middle of the fork.

For length adjustment and tightening, turnbuckes, positionned at the lower half of each tendon, are simply rotated to bring bar segments closer to each other and tension the overall system.
