Major gasket upgrade highlights material compatibility issues

Eurotank Environmental (EE)’s Tanks & Industrial Services (TIS) team has embarked on a major four-month project to upgrade gaskets on petrol tank lids for one company.

The tank lids have been degrading since ethanol blended petrol was first introduced and some of the gaskets replaced were found to be wafer thin and ready to fail. EE’s TIS Operations Manager Greg Wyatt commented: “The condition of the gaskets we’ve found so far has really highlighted the seriousness of material compatibility.”

The job involves tanks being emptied, degassed, cleaned via man entry and inspected before ethanol compliant gaskets are reinstated.
