Tank Trouble Tuesday

Tanknology carried out Petroscope® inspections on two tanks at a site in Wisconsin that was coming out of abandoned status and undergoing requirements to begin operations again.

As Petroscope inspections require the tanks to be completely empty and inerted with nitrogen, a thorough inspection of the full tank can be conducted. Read more about the findings of the inspection in the image below.

VacuTect® tightness tests were also performed on the single-walled fiberglass tanks, an important step in assuring the tanks' integrity. The tanks passed the tightness test.

The inspection identified severe flaking and peeling on the tank top, read more in the GIF below.

The suspicion of a loose manifold pipe led to a TankCam inspection of a single-walled steel tank in Michigan.

The inspection confirmed the movement of the loose pipe as well as degradation to the bung and manifold. It is believed that the problem was caused by a cracked nylon bushing.
