Storage Tank Surveyor™

Chevron approached Sonasearch with yet another novel application for our Acoustic Camera™ technology; direct, ultra-accurate measurement of remaining shell thickness. With a correlation within 0.000x" of the 'lab standard', the Acoustic Camera was determined suitable for the task. Sonasearch selected Teledyne SeaBotix as the preferred sensor delivery platform and the resulting Storage Tank Surveyor is the latest innovation in sonar technology. This state-of-the-art sonar tool provides an extremely accurate image of features, anomalies and problem areas, providing 100% coverage in fluid-filled storage tanks - without the need to remove the tank from service.

Coaxial Mode Telemetry

With the inclusion of the Acoustic Camera technology, the Storage Tank Surveyor (STS) is able to achieve precision images without the expensive, hazardous, time-consuming work of previous tank inspection methods. Extremely accurate measurement despite the presence of common tank sediments, the STS reliably provides the highest resolution imaging available. Precise inspection point spacing (192 inspection points per square inch) to reliably detect corrosion areas measuring < 1" in diameter is one of the highlights of this fabulous new product developed by Sonasearch, Inc.
