Abstract

With the rapid development of the petroleum industry, the development of petrochemical technology has shown a trend of being larger and more integrated than storage tanks, and the safety of storage tanks has become increasingly important.The theoretical approach of RBI for storage tanks is studied and a model for analysis of the possibility of tank floor failure is established. The results of the risk analysis are analysed and discussed in a practical engineering application study of RBI for storage tank groups in petrochemical enterprises. Tanks with different risk levels were selected and inspected using magnetic leakage detection methods. Localised corrosion perforation was observed in tank 100, which shows that risk analysis cannot be exhaustive in terms of details and contingencies. Therefore, more attention should be paid to daily supervision and maintenance to prevent the occurrence of incidental factors to the maximum extent possible, in order to reduce risk and ensure safety.
