      Hi everybody,
      I want to design two industrial vacuum distillation systems.
      The dimension of my distillation tanks are as follow:
      (1) A Horizontal Cylinder Tank with 200 cm length and 200cm diameter (total volume = 6300 liter)
      (2) A Horizontal Cylinder Tank with 400 cm length and 290cm diameter (total volume = 26500 liter)
      The material for both systems is Black Iron Sheet. The pressure and the temperature I want to work at are in the range of 0.1-0.07 mbar and 200-350 degree of centigrade.
      But I don’t know what wall thickness for the distillation systems is safe?
      By the way, I am an organic chemistry expert, so I don’t know much about design of distillation systems (which is an engineering problem).
