Mitigation of Soil-Side Bottom Corrosion of Aboveground Storage Tanks Utilizing Volatile Corrosion

Electrical resistance probes monitor mitigation of corrosion. Data will be presented from multiple installations demonstrating the ability of volatile corrosion inhibitors to mitigate corrosion for soil-side bottoms of aboveground storage tanks.

Aboveground storage tanks are mission critical assets in the chemical and petrochemical industries. Corrosion of the tanks bottom plates poses a significant challenge to maintaining the integrity of those assets. Coatings have been shown to be effective in mitigating corrosion on the product side of the bottom plates but aren’t viable for providing corrosion protection to the soil-side of the bottom plates.Volatile corrosion inhibitors have gained industry acceptance as an effective means in mitigating corrosion for the soil-side of the bottom plates and have been utilized across a wide variety of tank foundation designs including a concrete ring wall double bottom and hard pad such as concrete or asphalt. Volatile corrosion inhibitors can also mitigate corrosion for soil-side bottoms in areas where traditional cathodic protection systems are not effective such as double bottoms hard pads or when the cathodic protection system has failed.Electrical resistance probes are typically utilized to monitor the effectiveness of the volatile corrosion inhibitors in mitigating corrosion of the soil side bottom plates. Data will be presented from multiple installations demonstrating the ability of volatile corrosion inhibitors to mitigate corrosion for soil-side bottoms.

Key words: Volatile corrosion inhibitors (VCI), aboveground storage tank (AST), electrical resistance probes, soil-side bottom, cathodic protection (CP)
