Tank Inspection and Painting

Tank Inspection Service


Surface rust and corrosion are the main causes of failure in outdoor aboveground storage tanks (ASTs). ASTs in Cayman are subjected to harsh weather conditions, summer rain, salt and high temperatures. The contents of the tank and the tank shell itself expand in the heat and contract at night, creating severe stress on the coating. All ASTs in Cayman are expossed to salt air, which seriously increases the potential for corrosion.


To minimize damage to your AST make sure you have a tank maintenance program in place. J&R Industrial Service recommends its specialized tank inspection service for ASTs of all types. ASTs should be inspected every 5 years for corrosion at low points in the tank, welded joints and fittings, areas exposed to salt or precipitation and areas that may have been subjected to wear and tear or physical damage. Our service includes an inspection plan and procedure, a list of potential safety hazards, and a comparison of our inspection results to your tank manufacturer’s specifications. We will provide you with a report of our inspection findings, which will include a list of factors that accelerate coating deterioration and our recommendations to repair and/or avoid common coating defects on your tank.
