External & Internal Floating Roof Seal

Storagetech seal systems are designed to prevent product loss and atmospheric contamination from Aboveground Storage Tanks as well as provide a weather shield. Our seal systems meet or exceed environmental regulations and are custom designed to ensure effective operation in specific tank conditions. Storagetech Seal Systems can be installed while the tank is in-service. It is easy to install and has no need for a special tool.

API test programs for evaporative loss and emission show that emissions from roof (deck) fittings without seals or gaskets can be a significant portion of the total emissions from ASTs. A well-designed and maintained peripheral rim seal may not always keep the tank in compliance. Wind factors can increase VOC emissions, particularly from roof fittings that are not properly sealed.

Storagetech seal systems are engineered, tested, and manufactured to meet EPA-AST Environmental Compliance requirements. Different types of seals & combinations are available to suit pontoon & double deck external floating roof tanks & fixed roof tanks with pan deck roofs or aluminum decks.

Pantograph Type

Due to the force exerted by the weights, the pressure at the top and bottom of the mechanical seal is optimized. The weighted structure, along with the use of materials thinner than carbon steel and aluminum, eliminates the need for extra weight. As a result, the system effectively minimizes product leakage by using the pressure generated by the springs, in contrast to the weighted system. The efficient sealing performance can accommodate gaps up to 200 mm and operates within a ±100 mm tolerance range.

Scissor Type (Shoe Type)

The most important case in usage of this type sealing is to increase the material strength by reducing the weight and to ensure the sealing of especially light and corrosive storage products.

ERGIL recommends the use of Scissor type also called shoe type sealing in lieu of pantograph seal in order to balance price / performance ratio for extreme corrosive volatile or light storage products. Effective seal performance can cover opening up to 200 mm. And it can work out with ±100 mm tolerance. Thanks to its superior spring system, it successfully meets 300 mm rim width and works effectively maximum ±100 mm tolerance in range.
