PETROLEUM

Out of sight, out of mind. Why guess when you can actually see using new video technology?

by: Peter Sutherland

In 2016, the EPA conducted a study to investigate the corrosion effects of storing ultra low sulphur diesel in underground tanks. They conducted random internal video inspection of 46 tanks and identified that 83 per cent of steel tanks inspected showed significant corrosion.

Another application of video inspection is during the tank cleaning process to verify that all areas of the tank have been cleaned. It is possible to actually watch the cleaning process while it is being conducted to give feedback and assist the cleaning technician to get all areas of the tank bottom.
