What can tank owners and operators do while the industry continues to study the problem of newer fuels and tank equipment corrosion? No matter what your storage tank is made of, corrosion cannot occur without the presence of excess water.

First, perform regular tank maintenance procedures on your tanks, whether steel or FRP, to monitor and remove excess water and thus ensure fuel quality. Second, send regular fuel samples at time of delivery to an independent laboratory for analysis. That water in your tank may be coming from your delivery truck.

Learn more about tank maintenance by enrolling in STI/SPFA’s Tank Integrity Management course.
