Tectonus UNIQUE anchorage devices protect tanks through earthquakes & aftershocks
The tectonus hold downs
The Tectonus tank hold device (RSFD) is a self-centring , damage-free anchorage system that offers superior seismic protections for storage tanks and assets.
tHE ADVANTAGES OF THE TECTONUS SYSTEM
Earthquakes can cause significant damage to tanks during the initial event and further during aftershocks. If sacrificial components or complete replacement is required between events, the tanks are at risk.
Damage-Free & Ready for aftershocks
High energy dissipation
New & exisiting tanks (weldable)
Designed for long term protection.
How it works
The Tectonus RSFD dissipates earthquake energy through friction by the clamped shaft in the cylinder, while inherent spring action provides the re-centring force.
Performance testing for each unit
To ensure each RSFD device performs to the required capacity each device is tested and certified.
