This week's edition of Tank Trouble Tuesday features a corroded steel UST in Arkansas.

TankCam® inspections are an excellent tool to see what's happening inside your tank and determine the extent of corrosion such as this before it causes bigger problems like compromised fuel quality, weakened tank walls, or even a hole in the tank.

Tank Trouble Tuesday

TankCam® inspections are frequently utilized for remote video inspections of older tanks or to identify suspected problems. However, inspections of brand new tanks can also provide valuable insights.

Tank inspections done after installation, but prior to the first fuel drop, verify that no tools or construction materials are left behind in the tank. Inspections also check for anomalies in the tank walls, changes in overall tank shape, and anything else that may have gone wrong, like STP shafts with significant oxidation shown in the GIF below.

For more details on inspections prior to an initial fuel drop, check out a case study from Tanknology Australia.
