Austin, TX — Tanknology Inc., the world’s largest provider of environmental compliance testing and inspection services, that the company will honor employees that are veterans of the armed forces with a donation to Folds of Honor, a charity that provides scholarships to spouses and children of America’s fallen and disabled service-members.

To show appreciation to armed forces veterans currently working with Tanknology, the company has made available special-issue Tanknology apparel that will display the logo of each individual service tech or inspector’s branch of the military, alongside the Tanknology logo.

Tanknology’s commitment to veterans of the armed forces is longstanding. More than 30 percent of the company’s current employees are veterans, and Tanknology’s field technician training program is recognized by several national and state agencies for its proficiency in developing post-military career skills.

“We truly appreciate our veterans and cannot thank them enough for their service, both to our country and to Tanknology,” said Allen Porter, Tanknology CEO and President.

“Over the years, veterans have proven to be some of our most dedicated and valuable employees and we feel a donation to Folds of Honor is an appropriate and well-deserved step in honoring the armed forces veterans that have served both our nation and our company with the utmost integrity.”

Founded in 2007, Folds of Honor is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing educational scholarships to spouses and children of America’s fallen and disabled service-members.

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 super unleaded.

The TankCam inspection showed that the lower half of the tank was obscured by a build-up of residue, but a possible crack was observed in the lower tank wall on either side of the tank.

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.

Tanknology and Fuels Institute Team for Nationwide Fuel Study

2020-08-05T14:28:04-05:00Mon, Apr 20 2020|

Austin, TX — Tanknology Inc., the world’s largest provider of environmental compliance testing and inspection services, has announced a partnership with the Diesel Fuel Quality Council, part of the Virginia-based Fuels Institute, to collect diesel samples as part of a nationwide fuel quality study.

Tanknology was chosen to partner with the Fuels Institute for their nationwide reach, highly-trained technician base, and previous field study experience. In 2016, Tanknology worked with Battelle, under the direction of the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), to collect fuel samples for a study on Severe Corrosion of Metal Components in Underground Storage Tanks (USTs) Storing Diesel Fuel.

Tanknology’s scope of work for the Fuel Quality study is a customized process that utilizes their existing technician base to extract fuel samples. Tanknology technicians will use ASTM procedures to collect the samples from nearly 200 geographically diverse fueling sites.

Nozzle samples will be tested for non-microbial physical and chemical properties and tank samples will be tested for microbial contamination and water. In-tank samples will be drawn from the tank bottom and the middle of the tank.

The study has two goals: First, to understand the quality of diesel fuel coming out of the nozzle by evaluating fuel properties that affect engine operations; and second, to understand the quality of fuel sitting in storage tanks by evaluating properties that contribute to corrosion and product contamination. Sample collection will begin in April and continue throughout May.

“We are honored to partner with the Fuels Institute on this important effort,” said Allen Porter, Tanknology CEO and President. “Our strengths, and that of the Fuels Institute are highly complementary, and we feel that this study could help the industry better understand the fuel quality issues that are plaguing the industry today.”

“We chose to partner with Tanknology due to their breadth of experience with national sampling studies, the diversity and size of their current customer base, and their reputation for quality and excellence,” said Amanda Appelbaum, Director of Research for the Fuels Institute.

“We are hopeful this project will provide the Council a snapshot of diesel fuel quality in the U.S. such that we may begin to understand exactly what in the fuel may be causing increased engine issues and what (if anything) we are able to do about it.”

Tanknology’s DieselCheck Program gives tank owners a glimpse into the health of stored fuel by utilizing proprietary sampling methods to collect periodic fuel samples from single or multiple points in aboveground or belowground diesel storage tanks.

John Harris will lead the newly formed Fuel and Tank Quality Services Division, that will utilize the industry leading TankClean™ Remote Video UST Cleaning System, FuelPure Fuel Filtration System and DieselCheck™ Inspection Program.

“Tanknology is uniquely positioned to provide solutions to owner/operators dependent on high quality diesel,” said Allen Porter, Tanknology CEO. “We have over 20 years of fuel polishing experience with nationwide coverage provided by trained technicians.”
