Storage tanks must be inspected at regular intervals throughout their service life. The bottoms of these tanks are often made of carbon steel and are particularly susceptible to corrosion. To assess this state of corrosion, it is practical to use a method that has been tried and tested for many years, the Floorscan..
This technique takes advantage of the material's electromagnetic properties and allows it to be used on painted and/or lightly coated substrates for thicknesses of approximately 6 to 20 mm.
Thanks to the Floorscan it is possible to quickly make a complete inventory of the condition of the base plates and to identify possible corrosion areas that need to be repaired or better monitored.
