Hemispherical Tank Head

Hemispherical tank heads are formed by welding gore (pie) sections with a dollar section being used in the center of larger diameter hemi heads. The hemispherical shape is ideal for high pressure applications as it maximizes the amount of load bearing surface area when compared to other tank heads of equal diameter.
