STS ProTec Eliminates Sump Corrosion

Tanknology is proud to introduce STS ProTec, a sump corrosion treatment and prevention program that allows site owners to prevent environmental contamination and costly component replacement by reconditioning and repairing sumps affected by corrosion.

Before and After Documentation of Sump Conditions

An STS ProTec treatment renders each sump, not only clear of corrosion, but fully resistant to further contamination. The process uses market-leading technology that meets Underwriters Laboratory and Steel Tank Institute standards. 

The technology provides outstanding resistance to cracking, abrasion, impact and deformation over a wide temperature range and allows coated sump components to endure exposure to a wide range of conditions and chemicals. The process does not require a 30, 60 or 90-day reapplication.

Each STS ProTec project is backed by a Five Year Limited Warranty covering product and labor.

TankCam visual inspection often locates the source of the ingress, and also offers an overview of your tank conditions and any potential degradation. If the water ingress is less obvious, like in the Illinois tank below, our expert technicians follow up and test other tank components to identify the issue.
