Water Tank Inspections
Applied Technical Services (ATS) conducts ROV water tank inspections using submersible robots to allow the tank to remain in-service. Our submersible robots (a.k.a. submersible remote operated vehicles – ROV) can be lowered into the water tank from the roof manway and do not require confined space entry of inspection personnel. Water tank inspections utilizing submersible ROV’s are performed in accordance with the applicable codes and standards listed below.
  • API 653 – Tank Inspection, Repair, Alteration, and Reconstruction
  • API 575 – Inspection of Atmospheric and Low-Pressure Storage Tanks
  • AWWA D100 – Welded Carbon Steel Tanks for Water Storage
  • AWWA D103 – Bolted Steel Tanks for Water Storage
  • NFPA 22 – Water Tanks for Private Fire Protection
  • NFPA 25 – Inspection, Testing, and Maintenance of Water-Based Fire Protection Systems

Maintaining Inspection Programs

Our Clients aim to minimize downtime, so ATS maximizes the value of our inspections by conducting Practical Condition Assessments.
