A fueling facility in Tanknology’s Gulf Coast region requested a TankCam® inspection of a 10,000 gallon, fiberglass tank to inspect for undesirable conditions or abnormal operating conditions. The tank held regular unleaded.
The TankCam inspection revealed an active ingress through a crack in the tank wall. A pattern of degradation around the top of the crack (blistering, flaking, dark staining) was observed in several other areas of the tank wall, indicating it is likely that other cracks are forming. Widespread flaking and blistering was found in the tank and the tank bottom exhibited a build-up of sediment, residue, and debris.
TankCam® video inspection services from Tanknology help you detect UST problems with no need for excavation or manned entry. TankCam is patent pending.
