Storage Tank Integrity Inspection

Tank Inspection GRP & Thermoplastic

GRP & Thermoplastic tanks used in industrial heavy engineering applications have typically been regarded as “fit and forget” items, with lifetimes based purely on manufacturer’s recommendations. This often does not take into account the specific conditions of tank usage, leading both to tank failure in service, and the unnecessary scrapping of serviceable tanks.

Storage Tank Integrity Inspection is one of the specialist NDT services provided by Alliance Inspection. We provide a very comprehensive range of techniques & services for the inspection of above ground or below ground storage tanks. We have numerous technicians qualified to EEMUA 159 / API 653and have a wealth of experience gained from many sites across the UK.
