Contents Notes
This report describes benzene emission measurements which were performed on a 20 foot diameter floating roof tank under conditions of simulated variable wind speed. Three types of floating roofs were tested: (1) a contact type internal floating roof with a nonmetallic liquid mounted resilient foam primary seal and with a rim mounted flapper secondary seal; (2) a noncontact type internal floating roof with a shingle type primary and secondary seal; and (3) a double deck type external floating roof with a metallic shoe primary seal and a rim mounted flapper type secondary seal. Emissions for benzene product are compared with those where the product is a propane/normal octane mixture.
