Acoustic measurement of storage tank sludge

The Acoustic Inspection System measures the volume and topology of sludge sediments in the bottom of liquid storage tanks (e.g. crude oil).

The system includes an ATEX inspection tool that is inserted into the tank through a suitable access hole in the roof until fully submerged in the liquid. The end of the tool has an angled phased array that produces acoustic beams to scan a sector of the tank floor and wall.

The T-Type Acoustic Inspection System measures the volume and topology of sludge sediments in the bottom of liquid storage tanks. The system includes an ATEX certified tool that is inserted into the tank through a suitable access hole in the roof until fully submerged in the liquid. The end of the tool has an angled phased array that produces acoustic beams to scan a sector of the tank floor and wall.
