Tank Trouble Tuesday

Feb 272024

 

A fueling facility in Tanknology’s Ohio Valley region requested a TankCam® inspection of a 4,000 gallon fiberglass tank to inspect for undesirable conditions or abnormal operating conditions. The tank held regular unleaded.

The TankCam inspection showed numerous water running down interior walls of the tank. Drips were also found that appeared to originate near the tank bungs. The source of the drips was not determined and the inspection showed no substantial water ingress, however the large number of water drips suggests a water ingress is present. The STP shaft was covered with heavy corrosion.

A fueling facility in Tanknology’s Southeast region requested a TankCam® inspection of a 4,000 gallon fiberglass tank to inspect for undesirable conditions or abnormal operating conditions. The tank held water.

The TankCam inspection revealed that the upper tank walls had been partially cleaned. The inspection showed no obvious penetrations, cracks or points of
ingress but showed that the tank bottom was covered with a dark liquid that obscured the view of the actual tank surface.
