InnoVfoam tests flexible Rimseal detection

Monday 02 December 2013

For two major clients, Shell Refinery in Pernis (NL) and Jacobs / Vopak Oil Thames Harbour in London (UK), InnoVfoam BV provides a dynamic linear heat detection system for many oil storage tanks. The system is used for early fire detection near the flexible seal between the floating roof and the steel tank shell  (the rimseal).

For the connection of the detection system on the floating roof and the topbordes tank, InnoVfoam developed a flexible system in the form of a strong, oil resistant retractable cable and a collector to guide the spiral cable smoothly when rising or descending.

The pictures below show images of the successful test of the system at the InnoVfoam office.
