Internal Floating Roofs - Technologies The Ultraflote Roof incorporates the latest technology to make the strongest lightweight non-contact Internal Floating Roof available in the world today. It is engineered to not only be extremely strong but also highly efficient and very flexible to move with product turbulence and upsets.

The following features highlight just a few of the many details that make the Ultraflote Roof the superior design of all the floating roof alternatives:

  • Design Strength: The Ultraflote Roof is designed for a point load of 750 pounds which exceeds API Appendix H requirements by a full 50%. In fact, our roof has been field tested with a concentrated load exceeding 2,000 pounds without failure.

  • Pontoons: Our 10 inch diameter x 0.064 inch thick pontoons, utilizing aluminum alloy 3004-H36 are more than twice (225%) as strong as the competitor's 8 inch (0.050, alloy 5050 H38) pontoons. In addition, all automatic welding eliminates hand welding errors.

  • Petroleum and Municipal Covers, Geodesic Domes:  Ultradome and Geotruss Pivot Joints: All Ultraflote Roofs come equipped with Ultraflote's unique patented pivot joint to allow flexural movement between adjacent main pontoons. CLICK HERE FOR ANIMATION

  • Deck Skins: Our standard deck skin thickness is 0.023 inches which is 27% thicker than API 650 standards. In addition, our wider panels (84 inches wide) minimize joints while maximizing strength.

  • Clamp Beam: Ultraflote perfected the vapor tight, metal-to-metal joint that recent API testing has shown to be critical for a good floating roof design. Our beams are strong, balanced, and symmetrical in both axes.

  • Structural Bolts: Our High Strength 3/8 inch Grade 5 bolts are double cadmium plated (0.3 mils) with a bronze finish. The use of self-tapping screws is absolutely not allowed. All stainless steel bolts are also available.

  • Pontoon Saddles: Ultraflote utilizes a rigid 4-inch wide saddle at the clamp beam-pontoon connection which distributes the loads from the clamp beam over 100 degrees of the arc of the pontoon.

  • Computer Technology: Each Ultraflote Roof is custom designed for the planned service utilizing complex computer programming and the latest evaporation loss data available. Computerization of the design and production process allows very rapid response times, even for relatively non-standard applications.
