Internal Floating Roof ( IFR ) for Storage Tanks
Storage tanks systems may require an internal floating roof and a fixed or permanent roof system. The floating roof is used in the tank structure and is floating on the liquid stored within the tank. The floating roof rises and falls with the liquid level within the tank achieving a no vapor zone. The objective of the internal floating roof is to have minimal or eliminate completely the potential gaseous zone above the stored liquid. This is a safety feature required within many industrial storage tank systems.
Other benefits of a storage tank internal floating roof is, that by removing the gaseous region above the stored liquid, the tank is subjected to less corrosion or oxidizing elements.
