Only through regular preventative maintenance can you ensure your storage tanks will last you for years to come. With this in mind, here are some tips for better preventative storage tank maintenance in Colorado:
- Automatic tank gauge (ATG) calibration: Every year, you should have your ATG systems calibrated. The accuracy of these systems is extremely important, because they are used to uncover the presence of leaks within the system by monitoring changes in the level of product kept in the tank. Without calibration, these measurements cannot be guaranteed to be accurate. We recommend annual tank calibrations, and are pleased to provide those services.
- Regular inspection of tanks and piping: Storage tanks have a significant amount of piping associated with them, and inspecting and maintaining that piping is just one part of ensuring the long-term integrity of the overall storage tank. These regular inspections will help you detect potential corrosion long before it becomes an issue.
- Regular inspections and testing of the system: Our team provides a wide variety of testing and inspection services for storage tanks. Depending on the size and usage of your storage tank, you can have these inspections done monthly, quarterly or yearly—but we certainly recommend having them done at least once a year.
- SPCC compliance audits: We perform regular Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasure (SPCC) compliance audits. These SPCC documents outline the strategies you will employ in response to oil spills as an owner/operator of storage tanks. If you store oil in tanks above ground and their volume exceeds 1,320 gallons, you must develop an SPCC plan for your storage tank maintenance. Our team can help you develop these plans and give you more information and advice about what should be included.
- Equipment training: One of the best ways to keep your storage tank in great condition for years to come is to ensure that everyone who uses the tank is thoroughly trained in its operation. We offer startup and training equipment services.
- Functional performance testing and educational resources: In addition to offering the above maintenance services, we are pleased to offer a variety of educational services as well to help owner/operators of storage tanks get the best possible operation out of their equipment. Contact us if you have any questions about what these educational services entail. Our team also provides functional performance testing services for storage tanks of all types.
These are just a few of the ways our team at DJC Enterprises Inc. helps out our storage tank owner/operator clients. These services have been designed to help you keep your storage tanks in great condition for many years to come, thanks in large part to the preventative benefits they give to you.
