Function and Description
Floating roof tanks require a drainage system that automatically drains the accumulating rainwater from the floating roof. PROTEGO® SE/CK is a single scissor pipe system that works with swivel joints.
The upper scissor pipe is connected to the roof drain valve, and the lower scissor pipe is connected to the bottom pipe. The water is drained from the tank through the drainage system via the opened roof drain valve.
Solutions are available from DN 80/3” to DN 200/8” for floating roof tanks with external floating roof
PROTEGO® floating roof drainage systems are designed and sized to suit the individual tank specifications and customer requirements. PROTEGO® floating roof drainage systems are designed for a long life in service. We use carbon steel or stainless steel for highly loaded components or aggressive media
