Floating Roof Seal Inspection

Floating roof systems are designed to prevent evaporation loss and reduce environmental emission by using vapor tight seals mounted on the perimeter of the floating roof. Over time, floating roof seals deteriorate creating holes, tears, and cracks allowing vapors to escape. Additionally, metallic parts corrode and wear, penetration seals degrade, and protruding hardware damages internal coating systems and tank shells. Periodic inspections are required in accordance with the American Petroleum Institute Standard 653 (API STD 653) to assure that floating roof systems are functioning as intended.
