Tanknology Canada Inc. dedicates its resources to precision testing and evaluation of underground and aboveground storage tank systems throughout Canada. Leaking tanks threaten groundwater quality and create health and other hazards. A Canadian owned company, Tanknology originated as a joint project between a major Canadian oil company and the Federal Government to develop a convenient and inexpensive leak test for storage tanks that was not affected by the limitations of existing technologies. The inventor, Edwin Adams, of Edmonton, Alberta, developed a system which quickly became the industry standard for precision and convenience. Mr. Adams` system is now the most widely-used testing method around the world.
Suretest Testing System
One of the testing technologies offered by Tanknology Canada Inc. is the Suretest volumetric precision leak test. This method is ULC listed in Canada as a precision leak test as well as having an EPA third party certification in the United States. A volumetric test is ideal for testing tanks containing water, waste oils, motive fuels and chemicals. The Suretest system is fast and convenient and can be used at virtually any product level from 11% up to 95%.
Acoustic Ullage Testing System
The acoustic ullage test is based on sound. A recording of internal sounds are made from within the tank before pressure\vacuum is applied. Then while under pressure\vacuum a second recording is made and compared with the first recording. If a leak is present a difference in sound will be noticed and recorded. This is also confirmed with loss of pressure\vacuum. All drain lines and pump out lines are tested at the same time as the tank. This process is ...
Tanknology has combined technologies specifically for the Alberta upstream oil industry that enable us to provide conclusive results on the entire tank system in less than thirty minutes. Using the VACUTECT probe to measure for slight changes in the liquid level at the tank bottom, overcomes the major weaknesses of competitor's test systems that rely on sound alone. Our extensive field experience has proven that it is virtually impossible to remove the ...
