Life Cycle Cost Calculation (Calres)
A user friendly software program which provides a comparison of investment and life cycle costs for storage tanks.
The Calres software has been internally developed to facilitate a quick comparison of the initial investment cost for high capacity storage tanks fabricated from different materials, including coated carbon steel and stainless steel grades. The program also allows you to compute a detailed cost analysis of the maintenance costs over the expected life of the equipment.
The Calres software is based on the American standard API 650 and the French CODRES code for the wall thickness calculation. These standards, developed for the storage of oil based products, may be used for storage tanks for other products or for other industries.
