What to Do When Tanks Tank
They may look solid, but fuel tanks can leak or burst at any time.
The culprit? In more cases than not, it’s rust perforation that starts from the tank's interior. If water enters the tank, microbes can live in this medium producing compounds that lead to tank corrosion.
Water entering the tank can be caused by faulty tank installation, condensation associated with temperature changes, improper inspection and maintenance or simply delivery of bad oil.
Even a pinhole fracture in an oil tank can lead to environmental contamination – and astronomical cleanup costs.
