Fiberglass / Composite Tank Inspection Services

American Fiberglass Tank's field crews and customer service engineers have performed hundreds of field inspections and surveys to evaluate the shell integrity and corrosion coat condition of fiberglass vessels used for processing and storage in a multitude of industries. From potable and deionized water to caustic and acidic chemical solutions to food processing, AFTR knows the methodologies to determine the condition of your composite tanks.

A hydrostatic test of a vessel alone just reveals its ability to contain the liquid product at that exact moment in time. An inspection, employing such industry techniques as interior/exterior visual and instrument inspections to reveal spidering, disbondment, abrasion wear, emulsification, Barcol hardness, floor stress cracking, shell distortion and ultraviolet degradation, is an integral part of an overall survey. A fiberglass tank may pass a hydrostatic test today, but that doesn't necessarily mean it will pass three months from now.

AFTR employs Ultrasonic, Laser and High Intensity Backlight testing methods to help determine not just what the surfaces show, but what is going on in the structural body of the tank including capillary migration of liquid product under the corrosion coat. Early detection of such problems makes repairs simpler and can add many years of useful service life to a fiberglass tank.

At AFTR we believe the best surprise is no surprise at all.
