API 653 & STI SP001 Tank Inspections
5 Star offers certified American Petroleum Institute (API) 653 above ground storage tank inspectors. Our certified inspectors will help you maintain the integrity of your facilities storage tanks. We also have the adjunct certification for Steel Tank Institute (STI) SP001. STI SP001 is an inspection standard which complies with EPA’s Spills Prevention Controls and Countermeasure Program (SPCC). Using various non-destructive testing methods, we can find remaining wall thicknesses, quantify damage of corrosion under insulation (CUI) to fatigue cracking, all in order to determine the tank’s integrity. These inspections and resulting reports, include calculating corrosion rates, minimum wall thickness, remaining life, recommend repairs and required inspection intervals. All these things can lead to maintaining a safe operating condition, reduced cost and the headache of down time from leaks.
