Soil-side corrosion is a principal cause of storage tank failure.
Soil-side corrosion of aboveground storage tanks is a chronic problem in industry. It is a principal cause of storage tank failure and imposes a major environmental and operational challenge worldwide.
Different foundation construction methods and corrosion protection systems have been implemented over the last several decades in attempts to mitigate and control soil-side corrosion. Examples are use of asphalt pad, bituminous sand, cathodic protection (CP) and coating.
However, total effectiveness of these techniques, either as standalone or in combination, have been questionable in providing the required protection, especially against pitting corrosion.
