The RIDGLOK® Vertical Standing Seam Panel Insulation System was installed on the 2 Soy Oil storage tanks for a food processing plant in Atlanta, GA.   The tanks are utilized to help make their high quality dressings among other products.


The project was started on June 24, 2015 in the heat of summer.  The project consisted of installing the RIDGLOK® Panel system on two tanks which both measured 10.5’ diameter x 33’ high.    They were close in proximity to one another and to a nearby building making accessibility more difficult.   Despite the average daily temperatures being well into the 80s and 90s with high humidity and multiple days of site shut down due to weather conditions,  the crew was able to complete the project on July 10, 2015.  The project manager was satisfied with the work and the RIDGLOK® Panel System and stated that he would recommend both in the future.  He went on to say that the MC&I crew were “very professional all the way through the job” and that their work was “very neat.”        


The RIDGLOK® Insulated Panel System consisted of 0.024 stucco-embossed aluminum metal jacketing, in white, laminated to 2.0” polyisocyanurate insulation board with an R-value of 13.1, using a straight design roof system.


RIDGLOK® Insulation Systems REDUCE temperature difference to help CONTROL condensation for IMPROVED process control. Insulation of storage tanks REDUCES routine maintenance and PREVENTS energy waste and LOWERS fuel costs.


There are multiple benefits to insulating agricultural storage silos, such as sugar and flour silos.  Insulation helps control condensation, which helps minimize mold & mildew. It also minimizes freezing of the stored products in the silo, allowing for more even distribution of the product with the silo unloader. Insulation saves on monthly energy costs by conserving heating or cooling, if the product requires it.


For Process control, insulation will protect the product from freezing or being heated by solar radiation. It will also reduce the cooling of the stored substance, which may prevent it from setting and remaining in a solid form. In both cases, additional heating or cooling may be required.
