ROV In-Service Above Ground Storage Tank Inspection
Save Money Save Time
Manta Robotics technology saves our customers time and money, while meeting or exceeding the API 653 and EPA SPCC requirements. Providing refineries and tank farm owner’s a safe and efficient nondestructive testing (NDT) inspection for large hydrocarbon storage tanks. Our ground breaking technology uses ultrasonic technology to inspect the floor including the critical zone, which provides an accurate tank floor plate condition assessment, with limited or no downtime. read more
Safety Certified and Safer Inspections
Manta Robotics ROV’s are NFPA Certified to operate in volatile atmospheres and liquids; using a patent protected, positive pressure system, which allows our ROV’s to operate in AST’s, while the tank is in service. Manta Robotics has the only certified purged and pressurized above ground storage tank inspection system in the United States, Canada, and the European Union. So, find out how Manta Robotics can save you time and money. Our process also eliminates confined space entry and “hot work” around the confined space (the AST) during the inspection. This results in safer inspections.
Out-of-service inspections of petroleum storage tanks currently require cleaning and degassing of the tanks. These processes are necessary to allow workers to enter the tank to conduct the inspection manually. Degas emissions are released from the tanks’ vapor space prior to cleaning, and sludge emissions are removed from the tank during cleaning for processing elsewhere at increasing cost. Manta Robotics’ inspections eliminate the need for degassing as well as the requirement to collect the emissions and waste materials. These reduced emissions and waste are considerable when evaluating the costs of the current standard inspection techniques. read more
