Tank Explorer

Tanks are designed and manufactured in many different variations for the safe storage of a range of products. We can inspect storage tanks containing high and low flashpoint products such as lube oil, silicone, glycol, water, acetone, benzene, naphtha, methanol, jet fuel, gasoline among others.

Safe, trusted, certified. Entirely Intero.

Regular tank inspections are required for a number of reasons, including:

  • License to operate
  • Tank integrity assessment
  • Maintenance planning

Our inspections are done according to industry standards, e.g. API-653, EEMUA 159, and use intrinsically safe equipment (UL, ATEX) where required. In addition, our tank inspections are fast and cost-effective and require no downtime or disruption to your business operations.

We provide tank inspections for:

  • Petrochemical industries
  • Water industries
  • Nuclear industries
  • Airports

Intero Integrity Services’ storage tank inspections will ensure the safety, reliability and integrity of your storage tank, while providing more efficient operations.

We offer skilled personnel, a global reach and the best available equipment to ensure a high quality inspection solution you can trust.

Tank Explorer - in-service robotic bottom inspection

Due to regulatory demand or internal Integrity reasons storage tanks have been taken out of service for inspections like tank bottom corrosion assessments and bottom settlement inspections. With Intero's ultrasonic (UT) Explorers this inspection can be performed during operation, it now means there is no longer any need to empty the tank. In this way you can significantly reduce costs of in-service inspections and the effects of downtime, while cleaning costs and (off-spec) product waste are reduced too.

Our robotic Tank Explorer provides inspection according to the API 653 standards and EEMUA 159, or customized to the customers need.

The intrinsically safe autonomous tank bottom explorer uses UT sensors to detect any variation in thickness of the bottom plate and can differentiate between product and soil side corrosion. Our sophisticated navigation system and camera’s assure that we can cover the full surface of your tank bottom or as required and can give you a view at your tank bottom (product permitting).

Tank bottom settlement measurements are commonly taken when the tank is out of service and empty. However, the same data set obtained from the robotic online tank floor corrosion inspection can also be used to assess the tank bottom settlement. This will not only provide a more accurate and a realistic settlement assessment with the product in the tank but also provide a full, high resolution settlement display of the tank bottom rather than the spot checks on selected locations using out of service inspection.
