PROCEDURE OF VERTICAL STORAGE TANK CALIBRATION
 

STEPS FOR CALIBRATION

  1. Strapping (Linear & Non Linear measurement)
    • Circumference measurement of each course at least 2 per course
    • Taking of course height and total tank height
    • Plate thickness detection
    • No. of joints and its step-over correction
    • Detection of DIP reference height
    • Safe height detection
  2. Bottom Calibration (in side tank work)
    • Fitting water flow meter with water connection and taking reading opening & closing for datum flush
    • Taking datum height
    • Water level at various places in side the tank as when required in calibration process
    • Deadwood correction factor (+ factor and – factor) taking into consideration
  3. For Floating Roof
    • Height of the deck
    • Weight of the roof
    • Density correction
    • Inaccurate zone detection
  4. Preparation of computerised calibration chart with CD and drawing with detail report as required
  5. Approval and certification from Govt. Statutory Body

PLEASE NOTE
Items required for Storage Tank Calibration work
 
  1. ARRANGEMENT
    Govt. Statutory Fees & Inspector's Conveyance
  2. FOR STRAPPING
    Scraffolding:- For Linear/Non Linear Measurement & Ultrasonic Thickness Test Clean surroundings at tank site etc.
  3. FOR PHYSICAL BOTTOM CALIBRATION
    • Water/Product connection with hose
    • Pipe/Flunge/Fittings/Reducer arrangement for Fitting and Fixation of water/flow meter
    • Manhole opening should be there
    • Clean and clear bottom
    • Lighting arrangement if required
    • Inlet & Outlet should be closed properly
  4. FLOATING ROOF TANK FOR ROOF FLOATATION
    • Water connection with hose
    • Position to fit water meter with connection fittings arrangement for it from your part
    • Tank should be Box up and Manhole fitted
    • Roof at working height (i.e. lower leg position
    • Staying facilities if required during the time of floatation work
