Sprinkler Tank and Water Storage Tank Inspection, Repair and Maintenance Services

Inspection Services - Liquitech Limited

Sprinkler and Water Storage Tank Inspection

Sprinkler and water storage tanks are constructed in a variety of materials and design types. Liquitech has the experience and knowledge to inspect painted or galvanised steel tanks, aluminium tanks, GRP tanks or concrete tanks - be they vertical or horizontal cylindrical in design, rectangular, above ground, below ground, bolted or welded.

Storage tank inspection is a vital part of the planned maintenance necessary to prevent tanks from failing and potentially causing property damage or injury to personnel.

We inspect all the aspects of the tanks. For example: We measure residual thickness of the tank wall panels; We report on the condition of roofs and roof supports; ancillaries such as immersion heaters, inlet valves, contents gauges and drain valves; pipe connection points, and access ladders.

ROV Camera Inspection

Where a client needs to have a tank inspected internally, but prefers to avoid draining it, as is often the case with sprinkler tanks for example, we can help by using our submersible digital camera to film the internal elements of the tank. Following the inspection, we will extrapolate still images to present within a report on the tank’s overall condition.

Using the camera removes the need for any third party attendance, making the management of the inspection project very simple. It also enables the water supply to be maintained throughout the inspection of the sprinkler and water storage tanks, therefore eliminating costs associated with high water usage, tank isolation/re-commissioning, and possible short term increases in insurance premiums.

Pipework Inspection

Ultrasound is an invaluable technology, enabling us to build up a very accurate picture of the overall health of steel pipework in-situ. We can identify areas of corrosion and weakness in the pipe wall without disrupting service or supply.

NDT inspection eliminates the need to cut out sections of pipe for off-site analysis. Because the pipework remains live throughout the inspection, there is no loss of service/sprinkler cover. This minimises disruption, inconvenience and cost to our clients.

By eliminating the off-site analysis, we also reduce the project timescales, enabling clients to have detailed information about the condition of their pipework in relatively quickly.

Our equipment allows us to measure material thicknesses of 0.080mm through to 635.00mm with an accuracy of 0.01mm.

Inspection Reports and Recommendations

Following our inspection of your water tank, a detailed report is submitted outlining the health of the tank with an itemised commentary on the condition of the tank, with supporting photographs and tabulated results of the ultrasound measurements.

The report will also include details the actions required to rectify any areas of concern.

Data we issue following pipework inspections illustrates the original pipe-wall thickness and the residual pipe-wall thicknesses, enabling a planned approach to be taken to on-going pipework maintenance.
