Storage tank Outside wall thickness measurement

Storage tanks commonly suffer from corrosion, erosion, and material degradation, which can compromise their integrity and safety. Regular inspections are crucial to detect and address these issues promptly.


Voliro T
UT (Ultrasonic Transducer)
Inspection view


  • 200 readings per hour
  • 5-10 tank inspections per day
  • No scaffolding required
  • No cherry picker required
  • Readings on the walls,roof and floor
  • Readings at hard-to-reach locations

Case study I outcome

  • Case: storage tank outside inspection.
  • Location: Australia
  • Client: undisclosed
  • 615m3 of scaffolding saved
  • 400 working hours for installation and dismantling saved

Case study II outcome

  • Case: storage tank outside inspection.
  • Location: Switzerland
  • Client: undisclosed
  • 5 tanks completed in 1 day
  • 75 minutes per 1 tank inspection
  • 8 scanlines.

With the use of the Voliro we are able to conduct a very efficient remote inspection of these types of assets without the use of scaffold, rope access and elevated technologies.”
