Corrosion Solutions For Tank Applications
Aboveground and underground storage tanks are essential components of almost all of today’s industrial sectors. Unfortunately, as is the case with all metal structures, storage tanks are susceptible to the damaging effects of corrosion both on the external tank surface as well as internally.
Corrosion is the primary detrimental factor that affects the long-term viability of tank infrastructure, the industry’s efficiency and in some severe cases the quality of the surrounding environment. For a terminal operator the risk of leakage is an ongoing consideration. That is why developing and implementing sound, quality corrosion control methods and procedures plays a key role in tank maintenance and the longevity of your infrastructure.

Tank corrosion and the improper management thereof can lead to millions, if not billions of dollars in both direct and indirect costs. The consequences of tank failure due to corrosion are so dire that in America the U.S government have implemented federal regulations to all stakeholders owning or operating underground storage tanks to have adequate corrosion protection systems in place.
The most prevalent culprit of plant and equipment malfunction in storage tanks, associated pipelines, supports, structures, vessels, and machinery in industrial facilities is atmospheric corrosion.
In some instances there may be other environmental variables leading to the deterioration of the infrastructure these could include any or a combination of the following : high pressures; high temperature ; nature of the stored compounds; corrosive gases and chemicals can all cause carbon steel and other metals to corrode.
Corrosion is without a doubt the greatest concern when it comes to storage tanks, but there is good news. Corrosion is a problem that can be mitigated and controlled once the right control systems are in place and a long-term strategy has been implemented to protect not only the storage tank its contents and the environment but the financial bottom line of asset owners and operators alike.
