Concrete Tanks Testing
Solutions for Concrete Tanks
Concrete tanks are generally used for storing water, or other type of chemicals. Deterioration of concrete in this group of structures can affect their efficiency, structural integrity, and durability performance. Our NDT methods can help ,. Our NDT package for corrosion helps identify
locations with high probability of corrosion in the tanks.
+ Evaluate the quality and durability of concrete materials
+ Inspect the extent of cracks, and strength of concrete
+ Identify the location of reinforcement
+ Identify locations with high probability of corrosion
Structural or Durability Related Cracks
The internal surface (exposed to chemicals or water) is often covered with epoxy coatings to prevent leakage of materials. However, cracks (either structural or durability related) could impact the integrity of these structures. Excessive cracks, or through the thickness cracks can open up direct path for chemicals to leak out of the storage tank.
+ Identify potential location of defects
+ Study the state of certain damages over the life-cycle
+ Report durability properties of concrete (permeability, surface electrical resistivity)
