Storage Tank Surveys

IRISNDT are able to provide a complete service to survey storage tanks. Surveys can be undertaken to meet the requirements of EEMUA and API. We have experienced qualified Technicians to perform the surveys. IRISNDT carry out the tank NDT surveys utilising the latest specialist and conventional NDT techniques.

NDT Techniques currently utilised on tank surveys include:

  • Magnetic Flux Leakage (MFL)
  • Remote access ultrasonic crawler
  • Ultrasonics – (Conventional and Specialist)
  • Magnetic Particle Inspection (MPI)
  • Dye Penetrant Inspection (DPI)
  • Eddy Current
  • Vacuum Box Testing
  • Bubble Soap Testing
  • Alternating Current Field Measurement (ACFM)
  • Acoustic Emission

IRISNDT are willing to visit individual sites to discuss tank survey requirements, advise on the preparation needed for survey and to assist preparing a tank inspection programme. We can carry out external and internal surveys to meet customer demands.

On completion of the tank survey we will produce a detailed report for each individual tank, the reports contain CAD drawings and tables to aid easy interpretation of results. The report will provide a thorough condition report of the tank, recommending any repairs/alterations needed to ensure the tank is acceptable to the relevant standards. To assist in future planning we can also provide the client with a programme of when the next surveys will be due for each tank.
