3rd Party Certified Tank Scope® Video Inspections
Our 3rd Party Certified Tank Scope® system provides a detailed inspection of a tank's interior, without the need for manned entry resulting in a considerable savings and reduced downtime. Tank Tech, Inc. is the first and only company in the United States to gain a 3rd Party Certification for lined UST's.
The Tank Scope® System is a specialized video system with high intensity LED lighting for inspecting underground storage tanks and equipped with real time oxygen sensors to insure safety.
The Tank Scope® system fulfills the Federal EPA requirement that; any UST using an internal lining as a means of corrosion protection must be internally inspected at the 10 year anniversary date of the lining upgrade and every 5 years thereafter.
The Tank Scope® system utilizes a robotic video camera, which is maneuvered throughout the interior of the tank in order to:
- Fulfill Federal EPA Requirements
- Evaluate the structural integrity of steel and fiberglass tanks.
- Pinpoint the location of bungs within the tank
- Identify the sources, locations and degree of corrosion, abnormalities or leaks
- Determine the source of clogged filters or locate debris in tanks
The entire Tank Scope® inspection is recorded on video, which is subsequently reviewed by a NACE® corrosion engineer who creates your detailed report describing the current integrity of the tank. We then provide our customers with that video on DVD along with a detailed written report as a permanent visual and written record of the inspection.
Tank Tech, Inc. is not just a tank inspection company. We are tank lining experts and we can skillfully interpret what we see. Not only can we identify any issues within the tank but in most cases we can provide a detailed proposal to repair or upgrade the vessel.
If Tank Tech, Inc. performs a video inspection which detects the need for a subsequent tank repair or upgrade, we will credit half the cost of your original video inspection to you on any needed services.
Tank Tech, Inc. researches each application and installs the highest in quality coatings that are best suited for each specific application. Our Bridgeport Chemical® (www.bridgeportchemical.com) entire product lines are 100% compatible with Ethanol blended fuels. These coatings can be applied to the interior of virtually any kind of tank with minimal down time and backed by a 10 Year Warranty. Whether a tank needs to be coated for preventive maintenance or is severely corroded and leaking, we can upgrade it and frequently repair it using the latest technological innovations.
Our tank lining process is designed for corrosion protection and leak prevention and is typically used to protect aboveground and underground storage tanks, process vessels, secondary containment structures, concrete process areas and floors against continuous or intermittent chemical attack and degradation. Tank Tech's commitment to excellence in skilled performance and an impeccable safety program and record has gained the respect with many of the world's largest oil marketers.
Coating Applications For:
- Petroleum Based Products (Including: Alcohols, 100% Ethanol, Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel, etc.)
- Potable Water Tanks
- Corrosion Protection
- FDA® Products
- Chemical Storage
Fiberglass (FRP) Reinforcement & Compatibility Upgrade
Storage of today's modern motor fuels can take a toll on Steel and FRP underground storage tanks. Many existing underground storage tanks, such as fiberglass composite and internally lined steel tanks DO NOT meet compatibility standards for many of the new gasoline additives as well as the standard ethanol based fuels.
Leading industry experts agree that these vessels need immediate attention.
Using the latest in fuel compatibility and innovative technology, Tank Tech, Inc. can protect tank interiors before the contained product damages the entire structural body of the tank, arresting discharges before they start. This upgrade assures product compatibility.
Microbial influenced corrosion (MIC), researchers agree that MIC is often the overlooked corrosion problem in a variety of UST systems. The innovators at Tank Tech utilize their proprietary compatibility upgrades to put an end to this worry for fuel storage system owners and operators.
In most cases, even if a tank has suffered a minor breach, the overall structural integrity of the vessel is still viable, offering an ideal substrate for our skilled technicians to fabricate a new technologically advanced protection, strengthening the tank structure, extending the life of the tank and minimizing your facilities downtime.
