PTS' technicians will diagnose the root cause of foundation issues and work with you to create a cost-effective repair plan. For above-ground storage tanks, including water tank foundations and vessel foundations, our comprehensive range of repair services can get your tank back in service.
Cracked, Heaving, or Crumbling Tank Foundations
Storage tanks depend on sturdy foundations to spread the product weight. Undersized AST foundations or foundations built on soil with uneven bearing strength put the tank at risk of deformation and rupture. Based on existing conditions, PTS has the expertise to engineer a solution to safely repair your foundation.
Steel Tank Jacking and Leveling
As above-ground storage tanks settle over time, the initial compaction may be uneven across the structure. Based on a third-party inspection report, PTS will determine if the settlement poses any threat to the tank. We have the most advanced tools in the industry to raise the entire structure with jacks to facilitate grout leveling or damaged foundation replacement. If these solutions are not economically feasible other options are available such as tank volume de-rating.
Spalling issues are not just cosmetic. They can worsen over time and degrade the structural integrity of your storage tank. Our team will diagnose the root cause of spalling, halt the process, and repair any damage.
Tank Containment Walls and Dike Systems
In the event of a tank failure, spill, or leak, secondary containment systems are designed to contain the spilled material and prevent it from spreading and causing environmental harm. Our team has experience engineering reliable spill containment walls and dike systems for above-ground tanks across many industries.
