MC&I designed, manufactured and installed the RIDGLOK® Vertical Standing Seam Insulated Panel System on a flat bolted fire protection ground storage tank, located in Lebanon, OH.
The flat bolted fire protection storage tank was a 35′ diameter x 24′ high flat bolted tank, with a partial perimeter guardrail. The storage tank insulation project was completed in August 2010.
The RIDGLOK® Vertical Standing Seam Insulated Panel System consisted of 0.024 stucco-embossed aluminum metal jacketing, in White color, laminated to 2″ polyisocyanurate insulation board (R-value of 13.0), with a straight pan roof style.
The RIDGLOK® Vertical Standing Seam Insulated Panel System is used for freeze protection in fire protection tanks. The storage tank insulation panels can be applied to all types of tanks, including flat bolted, chimed bolted, glass lined, fiberglass, welded, stainless steel and concrete. The storage tank does not need to be taken out of service to install the system. Insulating fire protection tanks with RIDGLOK® Vertical Standing Seam Insulated Panel System provides energy savings by reducing the amount of electricity needed to heat the storage tank.
