Small Steel Tank Inspection
SHOP TANKS / AN ON-LINE, INTERACTIVE TRAINING PROGRAM.
Class runs from
8:00 am until about noon.
Note: Class sizes will alter the
required time to cover the class materials.
John Cornell, trainer and author originally developed this course and
offered it first though PEICE® in the early 2000's. There are now several knock-off classes.
Now the original course is offered and presented "LIVE"
online by John Cornell via H.I.R. Technical Services. Mr. Cornell welcomes you to a one of a kind course specifically
designed to assist tank inspectors with the inspection of small steel tanks. The STI® offers a certification but very
little actual insite on how to perform small tank inspections and API® offers certifications for the inspection of large
steel tanks where many of the formulas can not be used when concidering the remaining life of a smaller shop-built steel tank.
This course fills in the gaps. We show the attendee how to "investigate"
an existing tank:
To determine the approximate age of the
To determine as to which construction code the tank
may have been constructed.
How to use the above information
to determine the approximate steel thickness used during the tank's construction and then to accuratly determine the tank's
corrosion rates as well as the predicted "remaining life"
