Speakers from a range of backgrounds such as research and academia, inspection, consulting and more provide a comprehensive outlook on their experience in predicting corrosion rates in storage tanks and how to more accurately forecast maintenance and inspection including:
- Understanding what’s happening at the anode/cathode interface
- What to do when probes tell you there is no corrosion, but you have pitting
- Inventory causing tank floor flexing
- Excessive pitting in tank bottoms leading to increased maintenance costs and unscheduled service interruption
