Tank Repair | Maintenance | RIDGLOK® Install
Mayes Coatings & Insulation Inc removed the spray foam from this fire protection ground storage tank, located in Camp Hill, PA, sandblasted, painted, and replaced insulation with the RIDGLOK® Vertical Standing Seam Panel Insulation System. The tank was utilized to hold fire protection water for a Foot Locker Distribution Facility.
The fire protection tank was a 28 diameter x 32 high welded tank. The project was completed on February 1, 2014. The RIDGLOK® Insulated Panel System consisted of 0.024 stucco-embossed aluminum metal jacketing, in grey, laminated to 1.5” of polyisocyanurate insulation board. R-value of 10.4, using a straight roof system.
RIDGLOK® Insulation Systems are utilized for freeze protection on fire water supply for wet sprinkler systems. Fire protection water storage tanks that are in colder regions are required to have tank heaters and permitted to be insulated to CONSERVE energy per NFPA 22 codes section 16.1-16.5.
The RIDGLOK® Vertical Standing Seam Panel Insulation system is used for freeze protection in fire protection tanks. The panels can be applied to all types of tanks, including flat bolted, chimed bolted, glass lined, fiberglass, welded, stainless steel and concrete. The tank does not need to be taken out of service to install the system. Insulating fire protection tanks with RIDGLOK® Vertical Standing Seam Insulation provides energy savings by reducing the amount of electricity needed to heat the tank.
