What is MFL Tank Floor Corrosion Mapping?

MFL Tank Floor Corrosion Mapping leverages Magnetic Flux Leakage (MFL) technology to non-destructively map and quantify hidden corrosion beneath tank floor insulation. Powerful magnets induce a field within the tank, and any localized corrosion disrupts this field, generating “leakage” detectable by sensors. By analyzing these disruptions, we create detailed maps pinpointing the location, extent, and severity of underlying corrosion, empowering you to make informed decisions regarding tank integrity, maintenance, and future investment.

Benefits of MFL Tank Floor Corrosion Mapping

  1. Identify potential leaks early: Prevent catastrophic failures and environmental incidents by proactively detecting under-insulation corrosion.
  2. Optimize tank life and maintenance: Plan informed maintenance interventions and extend tank lifespan by understanding true corrosion severity.
  3. Minimize downtime and costs: Avoid unnecessary tank floor removal and repairs by accurately targeting areas requiring attention.
  4. Enhance safety and compliance: Ensure tank operational integrity and compliance with regulatory standards by addressing hidden corrosion risks.
  5. Improved planning and cost control: Make informed decisions regarding tank floor repairs, replacements, and future investments.

Applications of MFL Tank Floor Corrosion Mapping

  1. Aboveground storage tanks (ASTs): Inspecting floors of tanks storing oil, chemicals, and other liquids.
  2. Underground storage tanks (USTs): Assessing floor integrity of tanks holding fuels, lubricants, and hazardous materials.
  3. Biofuel storage tanks: Identifying and tracking corrosion in tanks storing biofuels like ethanol and biodiesel.
  4. Wastewater treatment tanks: Ensuring structural integrity and preventing leaks in critical wastewater storage facilities.
