oil delivered from the pipeline is stored in 110m diameter floating roof tanks, which are protected by angus fire engineering foam systems. the first level of protection is by rimseal foam systems. these systems are for extinguishing fires in the tank rimseal area with the foam only being applied in the annular ring area between the tank wall and foam dam.
foam is delivered to the middle area of the tank at an application rate of approximately 10 l/min/m2 using the monitor nozzles. the design of the pourer and nozzle system is semi-fixed with the pourers and nozzles hard piped to an inlet connection outside the bund wall. because these monitors will need to direct foam into the tank from outside the bund area they are design to have a foam throw of greater than 140m. the monitors are wheeled and form part of an integrated system including turbine driven foam proportioning skids, angus 12” super aquaduct hose and 25,000 litre foam concentrate tankers.
a large uae based oil company has constructed a crude oil pipeline from abu dhabi to fujairah. oil delivered from the pipeline is stored in 110m diameter full surface tank fire can be extinguished successfully by proper planning, setting strategies, ensuring the availability of resources and the basic characteristics of full surface fires of large scale floating roof tanks are briefed. it is pointed out that the present fire., .
abstract. the basic characteristics of full surface fires of large scale floating roof tanks are briefed. it is pointed out that the present fire fighting (1) a storage tank full surface fire at a petroleum storage facil- ity. (photos courtesy of. williams fire. & hazard. control.) 1 as a result of the roof sank due to the water accumulation in initial fire-fighting efforts, the fire became a full surface fire with multiple boilovers. many, .
