Aluminium Geodesic Dome Roof For Petroleum Storage Tanks

Center Enamel can provide aluminum geodesic dome roofs for petroleum storage tanks to all petroleum producers in the world. Our aluminum dome roof is made of the highest quality aluminum alloy material. The aluminum geodesic dome used in the oil and gas industry is durable, strong, and self-supporting, which is the best cover solution for petroleum storage tanks. The aluminum geodesic dome roof has been field-proven in tens of thousands of storage tanks in global petroleum applications. Even when storing strong bases, acids, brines, sour crude oil, and other petroleum products, the aluminum geodesic dome roof can provide maximum corrosion protection.

Aluminium Geodesic Dome Roof

The aluminum geodesic dome roof is a clear span and self-supporting peripheral structure. Aluminum alloy has lightweight, has high strength, and good corrosion resistance is the main reason for the design of an aluminum geodesic dome roof. The corrosion-resistant aluminum geodesic dome roof can be used to store most of the strong alkali, acid, saltwater and Storage tanks for sour crude oil and other petroleum products.

Aluminum Geodesic Dome Roof Design

The aluminum geodesic dome roof used for the original storage adopts an innovative clear span structural design, designed by our experienced engineers in accordance with API 650 Appendix G requirements to ensure that they meet the needs of the project.

Advantages of Aluminum Dome Roof for Petroleum Storage

Prevent rainwater from entering

Protect seals from elements

The all-aluminum structure is non-corrosive and can ensure a long service life

Reduce the surface temperature of the product by reflecting solar radiation

By eliminating losses caused by oil evaporation

Use very little heavy equipment for fast and efficient construction.

Installation of Aluminium Geodesic Dome Roof

The aluminum geodesic dome roof adopts a bolted structure, which does not require welding when assembled on site. According to the actual situation on-site, there are basically two types of installation.

Internal installation

This method is used near the tank where there is no open space. The aluminum geodesic dome roof is installed on the top of the tank to connect to the tank and is lifted together with the tank by a pulley system or crane.

External installation

The complete aluminum dome roof is installed near the storage tank and is lifted to the designated position using a crane.
