OKET Leads Innovations in VOC Source Control and Advanced Floating Roof Selection Criteria

On December 7, the "Petroleum and Chemical Industry Storage and Transportation Safety Design and Tank Area Safety and Environmental Protection Integrated Risk Control Technology Seminar" successfully unfolded in Shanghai. Organized by the Training Center of the China Petroleum and Chemical Industry Federation (Shanghai) and hosted by the Shanghai Chemical Industry Research Institute Co., Ltd., the seminar was dedicated to the theme of "Elevating Intrinsic Safety for Tank Areas: 'Safe, Stable, Long-lasting, Full, and Excellent.'"


Seminar Highlights


Exploring Safety and Quality in Tank Areas:

The event delved into the critical safety and quality aspects of petroleum and chemical tank areas, addressing issues related to storage, transportation, design, and operation management. The goal was to advance safety management technology, align with new standards, and enhance the intrinsic safety design of tank areas.

Expert Insights on Floating Roof Technology:

In a significant contribution to the seminar, OKET presented an academic session titled "Key Points in the Classification and Selection of New Efficient Floating Roofs." The presentation was conducted by Cao Chen, Deputy General Manager at OKET, offering a comprehensive analysis of the classification and selection criteria for the latest floating roof technology.


Key Insights from the Presentation:

-Composite Material Advantages: The presentation emphasized the advantages of composite material floating roofs, specifically highlighting the benefits of glass fiber reinforced plastic (GRP) floating roofs. These roofs combine beam and beamless design advantages, ensuring VOC emission control compliance, and offering lifetime maintenance-free operation, compatibility with various media, and suitability for large tanks.

-Safety and Efficiency: The composite material floating roof showcased features such as fire resistance, flame retardancy, explosion-proof capabilities, and easy installation. It emerged as a top choice for VOC source control in tank areas due to its high buoyancy, strength, and efficiency. 

Interactive Discussions and Q&A Session:

Following the presentation, a lively Q&A session took place, providing attendees with the opportunity to engage with  Cao Chen and receive professional insights. The session enhanced the overall knowledge exchange and collaboration among industry experts.



Exhibition Area Highlights:

OKET set up an exhibition area featuring cutting-edge solutions:

- VOC Source Control:* Introducing the VAP-O-LOC® Composite Material New Efficient Sealing Floating Roof and Sealing System.
- Quantitative Loading System:* Showcasing the Quantitative Loading Controller and AMF Mass Flow Meter.
- Warehouse Environmental Monitoring:* Displaying wireless combustible gas detectors and radar level gauges.

The exhibition area attracted significant attention, with experts and industry representatives exploring the showcased solutions, engaging in discussions, and considering potential collaborations.



Impact and Future Commitments:

The success of the seminar signifies a collective stride toward comprehensive improvements in safety design and environmental protection integrated risk control technology within the petroleum and chemical industry. OKET remains dedicated to advancing project quality and service standards, contributing to the industry's journey toward high-quality development.
