Maintaining aboveground storage tanks is important not only to secure the product within the tanks, but also for compliance with regulatory requirements, such as API 653. Regular inspection is vital for ensuring tank integrity. If tank and associated component integrity is compromised, the potential for failures increases, including everything from leakage into a secondary containment unit to an explosion. API 653 establishes the requirements for inspection of aboveground storage tanks and thoroughly outlines certified inspector qualifications, critical inspection components, inspection intervals, and more.
Join the experts at Intertek on November 15, 2016 at 10:00 AM(CDT) and 2:00 PM(CDT) to discuss API 653 specifications and the importance of tank maintenance for keeping tanks reliable, safe and compliant. Microbiological contamination testing, tank calibration, 3D laser scanning, dimensional control and mobile inspection data management software will also be discussed.
