TankData 2000™

TankData 2000 is a new development that addresses the needs of Owner/Users, Inspectors, Repair Firms, OEM's and anyone else interested in the mechanical integrity of Aboveground Storage Tanks. TankData combines the features of other "single function" tank software by providing a multitude of capabilities within one, easy-to-use software system. Each tank's inspection, design and maintenance history is now conveniently available and displayed, without extensive training, exorbitant costs, or unnecessary "window dressing" that only serves to increase the price of software. A Demo is available for download.

» Simple drag & draw graphics creation

» Any element type or text can have data attached

» Mouse over displays attached data

» Mouse click displays most recently recorded thickness

» Zoom to 200% for detailed drawing

» Inspections documented graphically w/detailed data attached

» TML data available in tabular list

Utilizing the Microsoft Windows graphical user interface, TankData provides the user with the following important features:

API 653 calculation formulas with on-line updates of corrosion rates, inspection intervals, "t-min's" and more;

API 653 shell & bottom survey calculations and graphs;

A thorough internal/external Tank Inspection Checklist in compliance with API 653;


A complete information database to allow recording of all construction, maintenance, repair and inspection activities on each AST, including generous narrative area for those items that just won't fit into a nice neat box;


Simple graphics routines that make recording of tank inspection information quick and easy to manipulate. This allows actual drawings to be developed of each AST shell, floor and roof, with each drawing containing notes, data, thickness measurements, edge/floor settlement, corrosion areas, etc.;

Extensive use of Tool Tips on each field;

Data is available for in-depth analysis via Microsoft Excel;

NOW with selection of US or SI units to accommodate your reporting needs

Cost Benefit/Justification

By utilizing and implementing TankData, an owner/user, inspection agency, or terminal manager can accurately and simply record Aboveground Storage Tank (AST) inspections in complete compliance to API 653 requirements. This program is also designed to meet or exceed the requirements and expectations of OSHA 1910.119, and the applicable environmental regulations at the place of installation.

Consider the following facts:

  • OSHA 1910.119 requires complete inspection information to be maintained on AST's and heavy fines can result for each non-compliance. TankData Solves This Problem!


  • State/local environmental laws are becoming more stringent every day. Failure to document inspections on such items as roof seals, cathodic protection, foundations, settlement, etc. has resulted in some tanks being ordered to be completely removed from service. Other violations have resulted in fines ranging from $1,000 to $50,000.
    TankData Solves This Problem!


  • API 653 AST Inspection Code (one of the documents referenced by OSHA 1910.119) requires that complete inspection data (external, thickness and internal) be maintained, along with repair/alteration history and sketches showing repaired areas.
    TankData Solves This Problem!


  • The typical man-hours needed to complete a single AST inspection will usually be nearly doubled by the time the report is completed. Preparation of hand-written reports, calculations, and sketches are very time-consuming, and is commonly completed days or weeks after the actual inspection has been completed. Often times, this "lapse" in documentation efficiency results in lost data, incorrect information, and scrambling to "recreate" the inspection. With TankData, the technician can use a laptop computer to simply type in the inspection results, and can also draw any necessary sketches, without fumbling with paper, rulers, protractors, etc.
