Operation, Maintenance and Safety Of Storage Tanks

7th - 8th February 2019 Mumbai

Course Description

Course Description & Benefits For Operation, Maintenance and Safety Storage Tanks:

The Workshop is intended to clarify the terminology of storage tanks, explain the concept of vapour emissions, how to measure them and control them on existing and new build tanks. Attending this Workshop will enable attendees to fully understand:-
  • The basic design and construction of various types of storage tanks
  • The terminology used in in the storage tankage industry
  • The equipment specified and installed in storage tanks to control vapour emissions including a special section on the Aluminum Geodesic Dome Roof
  • The effect on health and the environment due to hydrocarbon vapour emissions
  • The way vapour emissions can be detected and measured
A number of practical measures that tank design and maintenance engineers can take to control vapour emissions There will be ample opportunities for everyone to ask questions and discuss particular issues with tanks related to attendees place of work. The Workshop is presented in English by Dr. Brian Quinn from the UK. Brian has more than 40 years experience and expertise in the international storage tankage business industry. His practical approach to this rather complicated subject should be appreciated by everyone who attends the Workshop and hopefully they will be better aware of the issues involved and how they can take immediate actions to control them.
Operation, Maintenance and Safety Storage Tanks This seminar is aimed at engineers involved in the design, maintenance and operation of storage tanks with the object of ensuring that they fully understand the various types of storage tanks
This Workshop on Storage Tank Safety and Maintenance is without doubt the most comprehensive presentation of its type ever available on the training market.
Presented in a straight forward manner using Power Point and including more than 450 photographs and graphics, 200 Sides and 35,000 words of dialogue this Workshop is presented in a manner that will enable attendees who do not have English as their first language to fully understand the essential points.
The Workshop covers Fixed Roof Tanks and Floating Roof Tanks and explains their basic Design, Construction and essential Maintenance with particular emphasis on how these issues control Hydrocarbon Vapour Emissions. The Workshop explains the features of these tanks and the equipment normally fitted on them. The Workshop has been extended to include the Aluminum Geodesic Dome Roof and fully explains the concept of this type of tank roof and its application in the storage tankage market.
Following comments from previous workshops, Underground Tanks will also be included. The Workshop explains practical measures that tank operators can take to ensure their tanks operate within the international requirements on release of unnecessary hydrocarbon emissions. The Workshop does not promote or endorse any particular manufacturer of tank equipment but rather seeks to explain the features of the various types that are available on the international market.
