Ultrasonic Inspections

The Data Collection process utilizes ultrasonic testing to help identify sales opportunities. Ultrasonic thickness gauges have been successfully utilized for nondestructive testing in a variety of industries and scenarios for over 30 years. Some of the larger primary industries currently utilizing ultrasonics are Oil & Gas, Aerospace, Aircraft, Power, Automotive, Structural Engineering, Military, Stamping, and Precision. A large number of industry segments are also utilizing this technology to fulfill their inspection requirements.

The process that The TankSure® Program employs for ultrasonic testing is based on these EPA and API standards and guidelines.

EPA Regulations EPA Letter API Standards Ultrasonic Regulations

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and American Petroleum Institute (API) approve ultrasonic testing as a method for determining the integrity of fuel oil storage tanks. While these agencies do not currently regulate home heating oil tanks, rather they regulate larger commercial tanks, the methods they approve are directly applicable to home heating oil tanks. In fact, the applications are identical. The process that the TankSure® Program employs for ultrasonic testing is based on these EPA and API standards and guidelines. The TankSure® Program fulfills all inspection requirements including record keeping and data tracking through the TankSure® Cloud Database. The ultrasonic thickness gauges used for the TankSure® Program inspections are specifically designed for testing home heating oil tanks.
