Why to choose Storagetech Floating Roofs & Seals?

Internal Floating Roof floats directly on top of the product, they are known to leave no vapor space and eliminate the possibility of flammable atmosphere. Main factor to use floating roofs & seals is that to prevent possible damage due to vapor fluctuations Solar radiation is the main course of the evaporative loses in the floating roof tanks. The radiation striking the earth atmosphere brings about 1.5 KW per square meter, when measured normal to the sun rays. The radiation is partly reflected, scattered and partly absorbed by the atmosphere. Variable vapor space tanks are equipped with expandable Internal Floating Roofs to accommodate vapor volume fluctuations attributable to temperature and barometric pressure changes.

StorageTech brand is fully compatible with API 650 standards and provides various kinds of floating roof applications such as Full Contact Internal Floating Roofs, Pantoon Type Internal Floating Roofs and External Floating Roof equipment with safe and economical sealing systems to eliminate the evaporation losses. Our products have a proven service life of at least 25 years. We are the solution provider for most corrosive, volatile, and hazardous products. We have different type of products under this title such as Megafloat Block Panel Type, Wiper Seals, Mechanical Spring Type Internal Floating Roof Seals, Mechanical Seal for Internal & External Floating Roofs, Mechanical Pantograph & Scissor Type External Floating Roof Seals.

Internal floating roofs and external floating roofs are two types of floating roofs that are used in storage tanks to reduce the evaporation of stored liquids and to protect the tank itself from the elements.

An internal floating roof is a type of floating roof that is designed to be placed inside the storage tank, directly above the stored liquid. It consists of a platform or pontoon that floats on the surface of the liquid and is supported by a series of columns or legs. The platform is usually made of aluminum or steel and is sealed to the walls of the tank to prevent the escape of vapors.

An external floating roof is a type of floating roof that is designed to be placed on top of the storage tank, outside of the stored liquid. It consists of a deck or platform that is supported by pontoons or other buoyant elements. The platform is sealed to the top of the tank to prevent the escape of vapors and is usually made of steel or aluminum.

The main difference between internal and external floating roofs is the location of the floating platform relative to the stored liquid. Internal floating roofs are placed inside the tank, while external floating roofs are placed on top of the tank. Both types of floating roofs are used to reduce the evaporation of stored liquids and to protect the tank from the elements, but they have different design considerations and may be better suited for different types of applications.

Geodesic domes are considered to be one of the strongest and most efficient structural shapes in existence. This is due in part to the way that stress is distributed evenly across the surface of the dome, as well as the triangulated shape of the dome, which helps to resist external forces.

One of the main advantages of geodesic domes is their ability to span large distances without the need for intermediate supports. This makes them well-suited for use in a variety of applications, including shelters, observatories, and other structures where a large, open interior space is desired.

Geodesic domes are also able to withstand high winds and snow loads, making them a good choice for use in areas with extreme weather conditions. They are also resistant to earthquakes and other types of ground movement, making them a popular choice for use in seismically active regions.

Overall, the strength and versatility of geodesic domes make them an excellent choice for a wide range of applications where a strong, efficient, and aesthetically pleasing structure is desired.

Steel: Steel is a strong and durable material that is often used for geodesic domes. It is resistant to weathering and can be coated to provide additional protection. However, it is more expensive than wood and may require specialized equipment to work with.

Aluminum: Aluminum is another popular material for geodesic domes because it is lightweight, strong, and resistant to corrosion. It is also relatively inexpensive and easy to work with, making it a good choice for many applications.

Fiberglass: Fiberglass is a lightweight and durable material that is often used for geodesic domes. It is resistant to weathering and requires minimal maintenance. However, it can be more expensive than some other materials.

Ultimately, the best material for a geodesic dome will depend on the specific needs and constraints of the project. It is important to carefully consider all factors before making a decision.
