Pacific Northwest Tank Seal Inspections

Location: Davenport, Iowa / Seattle, Washington / Portland, Oregon
Project Completion Date: October 7th, 2017
Client: A refiner
Carylon Operating Company: National Industrial Maintenance, Inc.
Services Performed: Tank Cleaning

National set out on a month-long project to conduct in-service seal inspections on above ground storage tanks for a refiner. This project took a seven-man crew from East Chicago, Indiana to Davenport, Iowa. After completing two seal inspections at the Davenport location, the National team traversed west, across the mountains, to Seattle, Washington. While in Seattle, the team completed four seal inspections before heading to Portland, Oregon for the final leg of the project. Unfortunately, the above ground storage tanks were not ready for inspection in Portland. Therefore, National’s team began the arduous task of driving back to East Chicago, Indiana.

While on the job sites, National placed two men on supplied air, accessed the top of the above ground storage tanks, and completed primary and secondary seal inspections. An intrinsically safe camera was utilized to catalog the findings of their inspection. 

Due to the professionalism and knowledge displayed by the National Team, the refiner will be using National to clean above ground storage tanks in various locations throughout the Country.
