Internal Floating Roof – Pontoon Type
About the Pontoon Type Internal Floating Roof:
The Pontoon type of the Internal Floating Roof is an economical and reliable solution designed to safeguard stored liquid products in above-ground storage tanks. Crafted from a durable, corrosion-resistant aluminium alloy, this interconnecting grid structure offers an exceptional strength-to-weight ratio, ensuring the ability to withstand product turbulence and inspection personnel loads.
For added versatility, our Internal Floating Roof can be tailored to suit specific requirements, available in both aluminium and stainless steel variants for compatibility with a wide range of chemical products.
Designed with precision, the Pontoon Type IFR incorporates structural beams bolted with a continuous groove, effectively preventing leakage of threaded vapours. The presence of extruded aluminium floats without longitudinal welds significantly enhances safety and extends the working life of the system.
Adhering to industry standards, this Internal Floating Roof complies with the rigorous design requirements outlined in API 650 Appendix H, while also adhering to the EUROCODE for precise calculations and design considerations.
Pairing our Pontoon IFR with our Geodesic Tank Dome ensures optimal control over emissions, minimising losses while maximising storage capacity utilization. Seamlessly fitting through the manway on the storage tank, installation becomes quick and hassle-free, reducing downtime and operational disruptions.
