API 653 Storage Tank Inspection

The API 653 Tank Inspection standard applies to atmospheric field-erected aboveground storage tanks that were constructed to the API 650 standard or the older API standards. Our certified inspectors will assess the tank's foundation, bottom, shell, roof and overall structure for signs of current and potential failure. Attached appurtenances and nozzles will also be inspected.

STI SP001 Storage Tank Inspection

The STI SP001 standard applies to shop-fabricated and small field-erected tanks (your inspector can determine if your field-erected tank requires an API or STI inspection). Our certified inspectors will test the tank's wall thickness, in addition to assessing the foundation, supports, anchors, gauges, alarms, valves, vents, insulation, appurtenances and connections. They will also check release prevention barriers and spill control systems.

API 1631 Storage Tank Inspection

API 1631 Underground Storage Tank Inspection

The API 1631 Tank Inspection standard applies to the interior lining of existing steel and fiberglass reinforced plastic underground tanks and periodic inspection of steel underground tanks used for the storage of petroleum-based motor fuels and distillates. Our certified inspectors will identify areas where corrosion has taken place and metal thickness has been reduced. Nondestructive metal thickness determinations may be made by ultrasonic or radiographic testing methods.

Cathodic Protection Testing

Underground steel storage tanks require cathodic protection. A properly working cathodic protection (CP) system will allow corrosion to take place at the anodes and not UST system. Genesis personnel are qualified to conduct periodic inspections to insure that your CP system is providing the correct amount of protection against corrosion.
