Internal Floating Roof

Tanks Connected Aluminium Floating Roofs have been successfully protecting storage tanks and reduced evaporation for years. This success is attributed to the advanced design and high quality of Tanks Connected, combined with experienced installation personnel. 

 Tanks Connected structural design meet or exceed all known standards for internal floating roofs, in particular the requirements of API Standard 650, Appendix H. It can also be supplied to meet the requirements in Germany, laid out in the TRbF-Regulation. Tanks Connected main interconnecting grid structure has a high strength-to-weight ratio, using contamination free and corrosion resistant aluminum alloy tubular pontoons and extruded channel beams.

These flotation pontoons and structural members provide maximum flotation and strength capable of withstanding loads generated by product turbulence and inspection personnel. 

Tanks Connected roofs are known for their rugged construction, durability and efficiency. They are lightweight, corrosion resistant and virtually maintenance free. 

Tanks Connected peripheral rim and deck penetrations isolate and trap product vapors, preventing their escape into the atmosphere. Several types of primary and secondary seals including stainless steel mechanical shoe primary seals are available, all of which are designed to accommodate wide variations in the tank shell and the rim space. 

 All Tanks Connected components are designed to pass through the existing shell manway, thereby eliminating additional expense and downtime required to create other access openings. Since the roof parts are pre-fabricated and partly pre-assembled, installation time is reduced to a minimum, resulting in less tank downtime. 


 Let Tanks Connected Engineering put the three decades of experience in the design, manufacture, supply and installation of aluminum structures to work for you today.
