Codes and Standards

During the industrial tank repair process, it is crucial to adhere to the guidelines and requirements outlined in API 653. This process may involve various repair techniques such as cold-cutting, hot work welding, cold-curing, and application of protective sealants. Additionally, reinforcement beams may be necessary to ensure the structural integrity of the tank during and after the repair process. It is important that all work is conducted following industry standards to guarantee the safety and functionality of the tank.


Tank Inspection

Our experienced team is available to visit customers for on-site inspection. Some of our inspection services are:

  1. Visual inspection of welds, coatings, and inspection for corrosion

  2. Thickness testing and mapping

  3. Engineering analysis, to confirm the tank or silo meets current requirements and is structurally sound


Assistance with Request for Proposal

Storage tank repair work often begins with an RFP. Phillips Tank & Structure can work with you to create the project scope, specifications, drawings, and other relevant information. The RFP may also include requirements for project schedules and contractor qualifications.


Structural Engineering

Our experienced structural engineers work closely with clients evaluation of structural issues, including tank foundation design. Industrial tanks and silos must be able to withstand potential forces such as wind, seismic activity, or harsh weather conditions.


Steel Detailing

Phillips Tank & Structure has an in-house design group. We create detailed 3D models to accurately represent every component of the tank, including steel plates, supports, and connections. Fabrication drawings generated from the 3D model provide better fitment, reducing the likelihood of errors or delays during construction.


Fabrication

We fabricate everything from custom manway covers to the complete tank bottom, shell, roof, piping, and nozzles. Our quality control ensures that all parts meet or exceed industry standards.


On-Site Tank Repair Work

Our skilled field crews can provide a range of storage tank repair services, including welds, patches, reinforcement, and replacement of damaged components. On-site repair services can extend the lifespan of a storage tank and ensure that it remains safe for operation.


When it comes to industrial tank repair, safety measures must be followed to ensure a safe working environment for personnel in or near the storage tanks. This includes the use of appropriate safety equipment and adherence to industry-standard safety procedures.


New Tank Installation

For new installations, a dedicated team oversees the entire process from engineering to delivery and installation of the tank. This guarantees a safe and efficient project, reducing the risk of future complications. By partnering with us for long-term maintenance, tank owners can optimize their return on investment and have confidence in the performance of their storage tanks throughout their service life.

Considerations For Industrial Tank Repair

How can you find a reliable company for industrial tank repair?

To find a reliable tank repair company, research online reviews, check their certifications and experience, ask for referrals, and ensure they offer emergency services. It's crucial to have a trustworthy partner for critical maintenance. PTS has the expertise and years of experience needed to get the job done right.

Because industrial storage tanks are subjected to harsh conditions, the wear and tear must be monitored and corrected over time.


Regular inspection is important to ensure the tank’s integrity. During an inspection, our team of skilled technicians will carefully examine the tank for any signs of physical damage, corrosion, or leaks. Non-destructive testing methods can include visual inspection, ultrasonic testing, radiographic testing, hydrostatic testing, and pneumatic testing.

Our team of engineers and designers work carefully with clients to determine the best solution for each project:
