storage of bulk liquids is serious business, especially where the media is a Volatile Organic Compound (VOC)

“30% of storage tank accidents were caused by human errors including poor operations and maintenance. Other causes were equipment failure, sabotage, crack and rupture, leak and line rupture, static electricity, open flames etc. Most of those accidents would have been avoided if good engineering have been practised.” Journal of Loss Prevention in the Process Industries /Volume 19, Issue 1/Pages 51-59

Good engineering practices involve ensuring that all equipment is manufactured to high-quality standards and routine inspection and maintenance is core to the plant’s management.
