# Calculate the Volume of Ellipsoidal Head or Dish (2:1)

Calculate the Volume of Ellipsoidal Head or Dish (2:1) :

In this i am going to explain How to calculate the Volume of Ellipsoidal Head or Dish 2:1 before going to the topic you should know what is Torispherical head or dish where these types of heads or dishes are use . First These types of Heads are used for Manufacturing of Vessels. Example: Pressure Vessels, Storage Tanks, Filters and dryers, Heat Ex-changers, Condensers etc. Generally, these heads are looks like a end caps these are used on a Cylindrical Shaped Pressure Vessels.

Ellipsoidal head or Dish with an appropriate or settled span, Generally it comprises Crown sweep, Knuckle radius,Straight confront the range of the dishes are not consistent it fluctuates relies upon the extent of the aggregate dish for instance the inner distance across, Thickness, tallness of the dish and Volume. To figure the volume of the head Height of the Dish is required. All things considered these sort of head or Dish used to Close or Cover the top,end of the Cylindrical Shell to shape a required Vessel or tank. These heads are more conservative on the grounds that the Radius and Height is fluctuates it relies on the major and minor pivot and furthermore amid assembling the accuracy is high it require greater investment at various ratios.In most nations, vessel heads over a specific size In the United States that code is the ASME (Boiler and weight Vessel code)

For instance I considering inside Diameter is 1650mm, Crown range is 1650 mm, Knuckle sweep is 165 mm, Straight face is 50 mm. You need to know how to compute the Knuckle, Crown span’s look at this past post by tap on the connection: https://wp.me/p9YiTJ-gv

Formula for to calculate height any type of Ellipsoidal head or Dish is:

= ID X 0.25 + S.F + THK
= 1650 X 0.25 + 50 + 10
=472.5 mm

ID = Internal Diameter, SF = Straight Face, THK = Thickness

Note : All Dimensions are in mm (millimeters)

Without Consider the SF The formula for to Calculate the Volume of Ellipsoidal Dish 2:1 :

(ID/12)X 0.954 = gallons     (equation -1)

NOTE: In this I considering internal Diameter in Inches.

Already we have 1650 mm Internal Diameter

Convert Internal Diameter to Inches    (1 Inch = 25.40 mm)

Then, 1650/25.40 = 64.96 INCHES (approximately consider 65)

Substitute these Values in Equation-1

= (65/12)3 X 0.954

= (5.41)3 X 0.954

= 158 X 0.954

= 150.73 (NEARLY 151)

= 151 gallons                      ( 1 gallon = 3.78541 liters)

= 151 gallons x 3.78541

= 571.59 liters

Next, What about the SF Volume after finding above add those it may simple to find Total Volume. Why i consider the Area Formula. The height of the SF is 50 mm and internal Diameter is 1650 mm then it is a cylindrical Shell to find the Volume of the Cylindrical objects you should consider this formula after find the volume add these to above the you can obtain Total Volume of the Dish.

Note : All Dimensions are in mm

To calculate the SF Consider this formula:

AREA = PI X R2 X H                 (R = ID/2) =1650/2= 825 mm

=3.1428 X (825)X 50

=3.1428 X 680625 X 50

= 106953412.5 /106

= 106.95 liters

Add both the Values and to get Total Volume of the Torispherical Dish 10%

Total Volume of the dish= 571.59 +106.95

= 678.54

= 679 LITERS

Actually, the 1650 mm Internal Diameter of the Ellipsoidal Dish 10% occupies 455 Liters.
