Failure Analysis and Repair of an Overpressurized Storage Tank

During the delivery of a shipment of resin, damage occurred to a storage tank at a production facility in Southwestern Pennsylvania. Damage to the tank was apparently the result of tank overpressurization. O’Donnell Consulting performed a failure analysis of the tank, and determined that overpressurization was due to a “blow-down” following the transfer of resin from transport tanks to the storage tank. O’Donnell also inspected the tank and made recommendations on how best to repair the vessel.
