Number 1 in 3D Laser Scanning services

Building Successful Businesses Since 2007

International Partner Buro S.R.L. (IPB) has over 12 years experience in the digitization and surveying of complex process plants and factories, providing the latest 3D laser scanning services to the European and blue chip clients world wide.

Tank Storage Analysis, Inspections and Calibration using 3D Laser Scanning

Tank Storage facilities and terminals require accurate tank data as a vital part of assurance, integrity & maintenance programmes.
Anallysis of this information and sharing it across production, operations and engineering departments in a visual format is an integral part of the service IPB provide.

Application and Services

– Radial deflection
– Shell verticality
– Tank ovality
– Tank settlement
– Bund volume analysis
– Tank deformation
– Tank floor scans
– Rim seal inspetion
– Tank strapping
– Dimensional control
– Tie-in points
– Tank roof surveys

Benefits of our 3D Laser Scanning Services for Tank Storage:

Z

ACCURACY

Digital measurements can be captured to within 2 mm.

Z

SAFETY

There is limited requirement for surveyors to remain within confined spaces or for them to touch or have contact with surveyed environments.

Z

EFFICIENCY

Large amounts of data can be captured with 3D laser scanning techniques.

Z

HIGH HAZARDS

Our 3D laser scanning teams are trained to operate in high hazard industries. Risk assessed method statements (RAMS) are used for Oil & Gas, Petrochemicals, Nuclear and Tank Storage facilities.

Z

SPEED

3D laser scanning captures data much quicker than traditional surveying methods.

Z

VISUAL INTERROGATION

We can deliver your data in multiple formats – be in 2D or 3D drawings, or an animated fly through.

3D Laser Scanning Services for Tank Storage:

RADIAL DEFLECTION:

Taking radial cuts horizontally through the middle of each tank plate (or more if required) we can take a look at the radial deflection of a tank compared to a true cylinder (an accurate 3D model of the tank).

SHELL VERTICALITY:

Taking a cut through the side of the tank, vertically, at regular intervals usually every 10M around the circumference of the tank we are able to gauge the tank vertical integrity.

ROLL OUT GRADIENT MAP:

A 3D Model serves multiple purposes in the battle of saving time and capital for everyday procedures and for future projects. New project work always has a multitude of design hurdles, including how it will fit and tie into your existing brownfield site, the relationship between new plants with your existing, remembering to take into account even the smallest of these hurdles.

BUND VOLUME ANALYSIS:

With those operators still using earth bunds for containment, our scan files now offer the most accurate approach for calculating bund volumes. We can not only assess ground levels, but can interrogate the variances that occur with natural bunds.

TANK SETTLEMENT:

Looking at the skirt of the tank we take measurements, using the 3D scan data, of its height around the whole tank. Giving us an idea of its height in relationship to the rest of the tank.

TANK DEFORMATION SURVEY:

A deformation survey provides a general overview of the tank shell condition. The intensity of the scan contours can be adjusted to suit our clients needs. Further decions can be produced where there are areas of concern and the data can be compared to theoretical cylinder geometry or to previous scans to calculate any differentials. IPB can also advise on ISO/API standards and guidance.

TANK CALIBRATION:

With scan data from either inside or outside the tank we are to take area measurements, every 1mm up the tank, taking volumes from tank nozzles, manways. Bearing in mind traditional methods, which would use total stations to record 160points we are able to record over a million per second.

TANK FLOOR LEVEL ANALYSIS:

Surveying within the tank with 3D laser scanners, we are able to map the whole tank floor to accurately calculate the lowest point within the tank, allowing a water draw of line to be added at the optimal place.

RIM SEAL INSPECTION SURVEY:

for tanks with floating roof’s, IPB can create a 3D model of the tank roof, which is then compared to the laser scanned data for the shell. The tolerances set by the rim seal manufacturer are then added to the model. We’ll move the model roof through the tank 3D model to check the tolerances throughout the tank shell, producing drawings with measured dimensions and showing allowed tolerances for seal gaps and seal compression.
