Engineering Calculations Of API 653


Tank inspection and maintenance are critical aspects of ensuring the integrity and safety of storage tanks in various industries, including oil and gas, petrochemicals, and manufacturing. The American Petroleum Institute (API) developed the API 653 standard, which provides guidelines for the inspection, repair, alteration, and reconstruction of aboveground storage tanks (ASTs). Engineering calculations play a crucial role in assessing the structural integrity and maintenance requirements of these tanks. In this context, NDT and PWHT Solutions, a leading company in the Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) industry, stands out for its exceptional services in tank inspection and maintenance, as well as its expertise in engineering calculations based on API 653.

Tank Inspection and Maintenance:

Tank inspection involves a comprehensive evaluation of tank components, such as shell plates, welds, nozzles, roofs, and foundations. It aims to identify potential defects, including corrosion, leaks, pitting, cracking, and deformation, which can compromise the structural integrity and operational efficiency of the tank. Regular inspections are necessary to ensure compliance with industry regulations, prevent catastrophic failures, and extend the lifespan of storage tanks.

Maintenance tasks, based on the findings of inspections, include repairs, alterations, and reconstructions. API 653 provides the industry-accepted guidelines and requirements for conducting these tasks. Compliance with API 653 standards is crucial for maintaining the safety and reliability of storage tanks.

Engineering Calculations of API 653:

API 653 incorporates engineering calculations that are crucial for evaluating tank integrity and determining the necessary repairs and alterations. These calculations involve factors such as maximum allowable shell settlement, shell-to-bottom joint integrity, wind and seismic load analysis, and overpressure protection assessment. Accurate calculations based on API 653 ensure that tanks remain structurally sound and capable of withstanding various operational and environmental conditions.
