Tank roof construction
A steel construction of bent IPE-sections forms the roof of oil storage tanks. The specific profile dimensions depend on the tanks' diameter.
For large spans we often use IPE 360 or IPE 400 profiles, bent over the strong axis.
Kersten's machine park is equipped with a complete range of profile bending machines for accurate bending of a wide variety of construction profiles. After bending we use advanced robot cutting technology to provide the profiles with 3D contours and/or welding preparations in just one single process. Which saves you time and money.
Our welding specialists can weld flanches to both ends of the profile for easy assembling in the tank.
We also make curved rafters with welding preparation to reinforce the roof construction.
The construction will be transported in ready-to-build-in compontents.
