Inspectahire has many years of experience in carrying out storage tank inspections in accordance with EEMUA 159 guidelines, and offers clients a fully integrated service for inspections of atmospheric and low-pressure storage tanks.

As well as visual inspections, the company provides a range of traditional and advanced NDT inspection services on both in-service and out-of-service assets to assess the condition and mechanical integrity of storage tanks.

Methods of inspection

  • Magnetic particle inspection (MPI): used for the inspection of the shell to bottom weld and seam welds.
  • Dye penetrate: used for the inspection of the shell to bottom weld and seam welds.
  • Magnetic fux leakage: used to assess the condition of the tank floor and locate defects on underside of floor plates.
  • Pulsed eddy current (PEC): used to measure wall thickness and to assess the condition of the annular ring.
  • Vacuum box: used to test the integrity of the shell / bottom weld and majority of seam welds.
  • CCTV and pneumatic mast: used for the inspection of drains, pipes and areas where access is most difficult negating the use of scaffolding where access is at height.
  • Ultrasonic and remote ultrasonic: remote ultrasonic to measure the wall thickness of the shell strakes and tank roof plates by following vertical scan lines on the tank shell from the ground.
  • Visual: overall inspection of foundations, holding bolts.
  • Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs): internal and external visual, thermal and hydrocarbon leak surveys of tanks and infrastructure.
  • FLIR: thermal and optical gas imaging (OGI) surveys of the storage tank and Infrastructure.
