Tank Trouble Tuesday

TankCam inspections can be valuable not only for inspecting your tank, but also its components. 

We occasionally see leaking STPs due to a bad gasket. Whether it is missing, cracked or otherwise broken, it is an indication that your pumping system is not operating as well as it could be.

Tank Trouble Tuesday

The presence of excessive water in your UST can cause problems not only to your customer's car, but also to your tank itself. Corrosion and microbial growth are only a few of the risks.

With that in mind, a few ways to prevent water from entering your UST include: 

  • Removing standing water, ice, or snow from around tank fill covers
  • Verifying that tank vents have rain caps
  • Avoiding prolonged periods of low tank volume to minimize water formed by condensation.

The EPA released a report on ultra-low sulfur diesel tanks last July, and its effects are still resonating across the industry.

If you have a fueling system with ultra-low sulfur diesel, there is a good chance that it is corroded. Luckily, we can help. 

We did the fieldwork for the EPA study and are here to answer any of your questions, and offer you the same services provided during the study.
