With asset utilization critical, and community and regulatory pressure always looming, it is essential that tank farm owners proactively prevent any loss of containment with reliable, cost-effective corrosion protection. This is crucial since atmospheric corrosion is one of the main culprits of tank leaks, containment loss and early replacement.
As oil depots and terminals are often comprised of ample pipeline through which to draw product, it is also vital to address corrosion under insulation (CUI), which can cause serious problems including forced shutdowns, lost production, etc. CUI, which involves the corrosion of vessels or pipe beneath insulation due to water penetration, is insidious because it can remain undetected until leaks occur or the insulation is removed for inspection. Consequently, dealing with CUI and inspecting for it are very costly.
