FlowDome™ Geodesic Domes

Eliminate leaks with the FlowDome’s™ innovative design technology.

The FlowDome™ incorporates decades of tank equipment design experience into its ultimate geodesic dome design.

You’ll see that it offers particular protection against potential leak points including dome hubs, main panel seams, & roof penetration points such as gauge poles, walkways or other tank appurtenances.

Our use of 3-D & Finite Element Analysis (FEA) software ensures structural integrity & 3D positional accuracy at all times.

The FlowDome can also be installed while a tank is in-service and can be engineered for new tanks or retrofitted.

FlowDome™ design advantages include:

  • Panel clamping battens are flush with main roof panels so that sealing around the hub is easier.
  • Flush battens allow water to drain away and the dome cap offers a better seal across the battens & roof panels because they are all on a similar plane.
  • Lock (huck) bolts at hub connections ensure a predetermined uniform tension is applied to all structural connections. These bolts become permanent fasteners.
  • Packed with the installer in mind. Parts are color-coded and numbered for efficient assembly.

Flush battens

Flush battens and main roof panels mean that sealing around the hub is easier. Water drains away and the dome hub is better able to seal across both the battens and roof panels because they are all on a similar plane.

Anodized hub covers

Anodized hub covers give enhanced corrosion resistance as well as enabling silicone sealing around the hub to more effectively adhere to the hub. The unique hub cover design ensures that the bulk of applied silicone sealing is hidden from the sun and environment.

Lock bolts

Lock bolts at hub connections ensure a pre-determined uniform tension is applied to all structural connections. These bolts become permanent fasteners.

Batten screws

200mm pitch batten screws and deep section battens ensure constant sealing pressure is applied along the main struts thereby giving a leak free panel-to-strut joint.

Screw rails

Two extra screw rails for secure connection of walkwaysand other roof top attachments. Other manufacturers make roof appurtenance connections through the central battens which can cause leaking as the walkways or other roof attachments move causing the panel clamping batten to move. Panel sealing may be compromised.
