MC&I designed, manufactured and installed the RIDGLOK® Vertical Standing Seam Insulated Panel System on a fire protection ground storage tank, located in Cherry Hill, NJ.
The fire protection storage tank was a 22.38′ diameter x 19.26′ high flat bolted fire water tank, with a knuckle dome roof and a walkway platform. The storage tank insulation project was completed in September, 2012.
The RIDGLOK® Vertical Standing Seam Insulated Panel System consisted of 0.024 stucco-embossed aluminum metal jacketing, in Fawn color, laminated to 2″ of polyisocyanurate insulation board (R-value of 13.1), using a radial roof pan system. The site had restricted access and the tank had multiple pipe brackets.
The RIDGLOK® Vertical Standing Seam Insulated Panel System is used for freeze protection in fire protection tanks. The 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 insulation system. Insulating fire protection storage tanks with RIDGLOK® Vertical Standing Seam Insulated Panel System provides energy savings by reducing the amount of electricity needed to heat the storage tank.
