Storagetech full contact internal floating roofs such as Panel PU and Megafloat block panels are here to be your reliable solution with the most advanced available in our wide product range.
ERGIL Internal Floating Roofs reduce emission from the storage tank. The Storage Tank remains covered as the influence of wind, rain and lightning are eliminated.
This further reduces product emissions, product contamination by rainwater and the risk of rimfires. This is possible as it is designed under strictest of environmental regulations.
Complies With International Regulations ERGIL Internal Floating Roof complies with API 650 Code and Standard Design. This provides the designer with a selection of allowable stress to suit each design condition, which would be specified by the storage tank owner.
Environment-Friendly Designed to regulate gas venting, Internal Floating Roofs protect the environment by not releasing toxic gases into the atmosphere.
Safe Internal Floating Roofs are shop tested to ensure they are leak proof. Quality of the products is tested at the manufacturing facility before the product is ready for shipment.
Environmental safety is essential and Internal Floating Roof Tanks ensure this. Designed to regulate gas venting, Internal Floating Roofs allow explosive gases to vent into the atmosphere in a safe way. Installed inside the fixed roof storage tanks, they are also an economically profitable option. Covering the major part of the liquid surface and through an effective seal, the emission reduction can be up to 98%.
ERGIL, a leading supplier of Internal Floating Roofs offers effective solutions for controlling vapour emissions under its StorageTech™ brand. Complying with API 650 standards, it provides three types of Internal Floating Roofs - Full Contact Type Internal Floating Roofs, Pontoon Type Internal Floating Roofs and Megafloat Block Panel Type Internal Floating Roof.
Zero Emission is Possible with Storagetech™ Products
Leakage problems in industrial containers and tanks have been serious issues over many years and as a responsible firm ERGIL has taken the needed action against emission problem with StorageTech™ products such as MegaFloat Block Panel Type Internal Floating Roof and Pressure Vacuum Relief Valves.
ERGIL Storagetech™ MegaFloat IFR is designed to meet all standards and specific requirements of the industry, which is demanding safer and efficient ways to operate the tanks with 0 emissions. Manufactured to be installed inside fixed roof storage tanks, it’s a Full Contact Floating Roof with absolutely no gap, thereby reducing emission and restricting vapour build up.
The differentiating factor between MegaFloat and the other Internal Floating Roof is the space, often there is vapor space between the roof and the product which allows dangerous fumes to collect. MegaFloat is designed to be much more reliable than other available Internal Floating Roofs.

It is ensured that when the floating roof and vacuum vent sink at the bottom of the tank, the existing fluid runs out without vacuum.
What are the Advantages of MegaFloat IFR?
MegaFloat is welded, ensuring there is no leakage of precious non-renewable fossil fuel and is pre-fabricated at ERGIL’s manufacturing facility in Mersin, Turkey. Storagetech MegaFloat IFR reduces the time taken for installation at the site, leading to the quicker execution of the project. Unlike, the other Full Contact Internal Floating Roof in the market which has a short product lifespan and is non-durable as they are stuck with a chemical to sheets.
MegaFloat beats its competitors in the market by being stronger, tighter and one having a longer product lifespan and sturdy enough to store all kinds of fuels. Storagetech cares for the environment and ensures its products are designed and manufactured to serve this objective.
The main philosophy is boundary calculation which is basically determined as box volume will be sink inside of the liquid and there will be buoyant force upward and normal force acting downward resulted by the weights of the box.
ERGIL designs and manufactures pressure vessels up to 900 bar with maximum thickness 220 mm. Our fabrication facility and personnel are certified with ASME U, S, R, NBR, GOST, AD 2000/ISO 3834, EN 1090-1, EN ISO 3834-2, & DNV GL + ABS Marine Welding Class Program and capable of designing and manufacturing as per ASME, EN, GOST & as per end user requirements; such Shell DEP.
What are the Advantages of MegaFloat IFR?
Comparing these forces regarding floatation level will be clearly determined and accordingly if required dimension to be rechecked and arranged as per the API650 requirements. We can clearly cover the range of 190 mm gap, however, unless it is required, we can adjust the lesser dimension as per client request. Technical drawings including internal piping such as roof to downward, shell to centre and any obstacles like vacuum breakers, supports, etc.
Each Floating blocks are tested separately during the manufacturing period. Also, leakage test has to be done in each floating block. It is a vital point for the usage of internal floating roofs. We put measurement item on the block as you can see in the above figures and check if there is any undesirable leakage between plates. Boxes are bolted each other and between them, the sealant which is made by corrosive resistive material shall be used. Each one shall Inside of boxes, there are several mechanisms to support boxes' stability and strength using intermittent welds, therefore there shall be no any structural buckling, deformation or weak point by weight sources.

The floating roof is comprised of a deck, fittings, and rim seal system. Floating roof decks are constructed of welded steel plates and are of three general types.. pan, pontoon, and double deck.What is the difference between internal floating roof and external floating roof? ›
On the base of the same floating seal, compared with external floating roof tank, internal floating roof storage tank can further reduce the evaporation loose, which is because the shelter of fixed roof, and the gas phase layer between fixed roof and internal floating roof deck has a more remarkable heat insulation ...What is the purpose of a floating roof tank? ›
An external floating roof tank is a storage tank commonly used to store large quantities of petroleum products such as crude oil or condensate. It consists of an open- topped cylindrical steel shell equipped with a roof that floats on the surface of the stored liquid.What are LNG tanks made of? ›
LNG Storage Tanks
The tank is double-walled, with a carbon steel outer wall and a nickel-steel inner tank. Nickel steel inner tanks are used because ordinary steel is too brittle to use in direct contact with the cryogenic LNG.
Floating roof tanks use “pontoons” to create a seal against the tank's wall to help reduce evaporation and prevent the buildup of dangerous gases that often occur with flammable liquids.What is double deck floating roof tank? ›
Product Description. Double Deck type is effective for heat isolation, prevention of heat emission and also for safety of buoyancy. As compared to single deck, double deck is having more life .

API 620 regulates the design and manufacture of large steel low-pressure storage tanks, usually larger than 300 feet in diameter. By contrast, API Standard 650 is typically used for carbon, stainless steel and aluminum tanks located in terminals, refineries, pipelines and other process facilities.What is difference between vessel and tank? ›
The primary distinction between vessels and tanks is that pressure tanks have a Maximum Allowable Operating Pressure (MAOP) of 15 PSI, while high-pressure vessels start at 15 PSI but can hold up to 3000 PSI (and even higher under special allowances).How cold is LNG gas? ›
LNG is simply natural gas in its liquid state. When natural gas is chilled to a temperature of about minus 160° C (minus 260° F) at atmospheric pressure, it becomes a clear, colourless and odourless liquid.Does LNG need to be kept cold? ›
LNG must be maintained cold (at least below -177°F [-83°C]) to remain a liquid, independent of pressure.What is difference between LPG and LNG? ›
LNG – Liquefied Natural Gas – is natural gas (methane) cryogenically liquefied. LPG – Liquefied Petroleum Gas – is mainly propane and butane alone or in mixtures liquified under pressure. LPG is produced from crude oil refining and natural gas processing.Why is it called pontoon? ›
The word stems from the Latin pontonem, "flat-bottomed boat," and its root pons, or "bridge."What is an API tank? ›
Overview. API (American Petroleum Institute) has established standards for the design and fabrication of welded steel storage tanks for storing oil and other liquids. Modern Welding has a long history of building shop fabricated API tanks for various applications and would like to do so for your next project.Why LPG storage tanks are spherical? ›
Gases are stored under pressure at a temperature lower than their liquefaction temperature. The main advantage of the spherical construction is that the stress concentration in a spherical shape will be minimal while storing pressurized gases as the stress resistance will be uniform over the total surface.
The API 653 Standard is the corollary to the API 650 Standard. API 650 is for constructing a new above ground liquid storage tank while API 653 is for the maintenance of an API 650 to determine whether the tank fit for continued service.What is the latest edition of API 620? ›
