Control of Vapour Emissions from Storage Tanks
Description of the various types of storage tanks – External Floating Roof Tanks – Fixed Roof Tanks – how they are constructed and the circumstances for using each type of tank.
Description of the essential equipment on each type of tanks and explanations of what they do-
• aluminum dome roofs
• aluminum internal floating roofs – pontoon and full contact
• primary and secondary seal systems for internal and external floating roof tanks
• roof drain systems for external floating roof tanks
• floating suction units for fixed roof tanks
To cover all of the above topics and the total presentation in two days we can split as follows
Who should attend:
Individuals who have engineering, inspection, maintenance, and/or management responsibilities related to aboveground atmospheric storage tanks that store hydrocarbon liquids.
Become more aware of the different TYPES of tanks available for the storage of hydrocarbon liquids, how these TYPES of tank operate and the reason for choosing a TYPE.
Explanation of the Aluminum Dome Roof and where this TYPE of roof is applicable – pros and cons of specifying this TYPE of roof – how the roof is manufactured, erected and maintained.
Explanation of the various TYPES of Internal Floating Roof – where they are applicable – how they control the emission of vapour from the tanks – pros and cons of specifying this TYPE of roof – how the roof is manufactured, erected and maintained.
Explanation of Rim Gap Seal Systems, i.e. Primary and Secondary Seals – the main TYPES of seals – where they are applicable – pros and cons of specifying each TYPE of seal – how the seals are manufactured, installed and maintained.
