The field of bulk storage-tank inspections comprises both in- and out-of-service inspections of vertical and horizontal storage tanks, both above and below ground. A combination of techniques are used to provide a comprehensive condition report on the overall tank floor, shell, roof and structure, including engineering calculations in accordance with API 653 & 650 and other relevant specifications. Equipment and techniques used in the inspection of bulk storage tanks include: Floor scanning (MFL and SLOFEC™) – detection and measurement of corrosion; Shell crawlers – ultrasonic assessment of shell plates; Laser surveys (3D and conventional); LRPA (long-range ultrasonic phased array) – critical annular-to-shell-joint inspections with tanks remaining in service; and Conventional NDT – ultrasonic, magnetic particle, vacuum box testing, etc.
