Aboveground storage tanks can carry a high risk of accident or product loss if not adequately protected. Bass Engineering provides comprehensive solutions for above-ground storage tanks (AST), starting with a complete evaluation of the tank bottom’s existing cathodic protection system. Solutions are tailored for single bottom tanks, double bottom tanks, and tanks with liners.
Through partnership with Cortec, we offer a proprietary Vapor Corrosion Inhibitor (VCI) formula, known as VpCI©. This revolutionary technology offers a cost-effective and environmentally-friendly alternative for applications that may not be ideally suited for traditional cathodic protection methods. VCI serves as an integral component, whether used independently or as part of a comprehensive corrosion control program.
VCI products consist of a specialized vapor barrier that is released into a sealed space. This vapor barrier condenses and is absorbed onto metal surfaces, creating a protective layer that inhibits the onset and progression of corrosion. By introducing VCI technology, we provide our clients with an innovative tool to combat corrosion in challenging environments.
