tank inspections, repairs & modifications
Things happen. You notice a leak or crack in a weld. A fitting gets hit by a forktruck and it can’t be used. The tank vent is restricted and now the top of your tank is crinkled like a pop can.
We can fix it. SFI is skilled and qualified to perform inspections and make repairs and modifications to existing tanks and ASME pressure vessels in our shop or on-site at customer facilities. We are ASME certified and hold the NBIC "R" certification.
Tank repair services
SFI tank inspections and repair services are based in Springfield, Missouri. As part of our service, we can mobilize a supervisor to your facility to inspect a tank that needs repair or requires modifications. After inspection, we provide our recommendations and a quotation for repair or replacement. Similarly, smaller tanks can be sent to our facility for evaluation and repair or modification.
Typically tanks can be modified for much less than replacement cost! SFI personnel have the skills and experience to...
- Inspect and repair damage
- Add or move fittings
- Install new manways
- Perform agitation repairs or modifications
- Replace a damaged top and/or sidewall
- Replace outer jacket
- Build and Install ladders, platforms, handrails
Silo Top Replacement
A tank repair such as a silo top replacement provides a perfect opportunity to increase tank capacity or make other changes. We can expand the capacity of an existing tank by increasing the sidewall height. The damaged portion of the tank is cut away, additional new sidewall courses are added, and the new top is installed. It’s quick, efficient and less costly than a new tank, in both time and financial outlay.
SFI builds and installs tank accessories such as ladders, handrails, platforms and catwalks in various sizes and configurations using aluminum, galvanized, stainless and carbon steel.
SFI utilizes various standards to ensure your product is built to the highest quality possible.
We hold the following certificates:
- ASME “U” certification
- National Board “R” certification
Other standards are utilized as required, such as:
- API 620 & 650
- ASME BPE Guidelines
- Canadian Registration Number (CRN) documentation
- Ministry of Manpower-Singapore (MOM) documentation
- PED (European Pressure Equipment Directive) “CE” Mark
Safety on a job site, whether it be yours or our own, is of critical importance to us and we invest significant resources in on-going training, safety management, and equipment.
