  • Horizontal diesel Tank calibration

    Please, help me calibrate my horizontal cylindrical diesel tank with the following dimensions:
    Length=8.56m
    Diameter/Height=2.77m
    This tank lies horizontal on a concrete base, and i need to be able to determine the quantity of gas in stock at various heights of lengths every 4 hours.

        See post #2 of this thread for formulas:

        or post #3 for a link to a calculator.

        If you would like volumes in liters, express the dimensions in decimeters (1 L = 1 dm≥), ie 85.6 dm diameter, 27.7 dm length. You need to use internal dimensions, or if you use external dimensions, subtract two wall thicknesses. If you use meters, volume will be in cubic meters.

          26.7dm diameter, 84.6dm length. Is this what you require?

            If those are the inside dimensions, Vmax is 47367.75 L

            If you don't wish to program an Excel spreadsheet with the equations, use our partially filled cylinder calculator for any partial fills based on dip depth
            http://www.onlineconversion.com/obje...nk_partial.htm

            You can enter as many depths as you wish and make a chart.

                  I am assuming 4ft diameter by 4 foot long. 4 ft = 1.2192 m or 12.192 dm (cubing that will give us liters directly)

                  Volume is (pi/4)diameter ≤ x length = 1423 dm≥

                  You need to allow for thermal expansion so I wouldn't advise filling to over 90% of that, about 1280 L.

                  See the previous post for a link if you need to calculate the depth at partial fill for a dipstick.
