Selection of Internal Floating Roof for Crude Oil Service

Selection of Internal Floating Roof for Crude Oil Service


Good Morning all,

please put forward me some ideas regarding the selection of Internal Floating Roof (IFR)for below points:

For Crude oil service, which type of IFR is more suitable?

Aluminium or Carbon Steel, which material is more suitable for IFR for crude service?

Tanks in Advance.

RE: Selection of Internal Floating Roof for Crude Oil Service

Good morning Mohammed,

1. I built single deck for Crude Oil. I built also double deck for crude oil. All roof on these tanks are EFRT. Last one I built Dome Roof with internal framing for Crude Oil Tanks.

2. I built dome roof with Alumunium IFRT. The vacono deck was design by Rheifelden (Germany). I did also CS IFRT on DRT.

It is depend on client requirement and tank designer judgment.
