If you plan to perfrom Ultrasonic inspections, I suggest you look at the Krautkramer line of Digital Thickness Gauges and in particular the DMS 2 with TopCOAT technology for reading through costings. Krautkramer also offers software for the data recording instruments which allows you to document the results of thickness surveys in the field, transfer data to the computer and print reports.
Contact you local Krautkramer sales representative for additional details....They can be located from the web site directory.

Re: Tank inspection You may also check out Panametrics' line of high-end thickness gages for corrosion applications. The 36DL PLUS (with A-Scan) has lots of practical features including Echo-to-Echo, B-Scan with waveform recall, and simultaneous viewing of both live A-Scan and B-Scan. More information, including representation in Russia, is available on the company's website.

Re: Tank inspection You are asking a very large question which you need to split up into out of service and on-stream inspection.
You also need to differentiate between standard uninsulated atmospheric tanks, insulated low pressure tanks and non metallic tanks.
Carbon Steel Atmospheric Tanks make up the bulk of the industry and fall under codes such as API 650/653 and EEMUA 159.
In service you can get at shells and roofs to perform UT thickness surveys with a wide range of ultrasonic devices. To avoid scaffolding there is an array of UT and MFL shell crawlers to determine remaining wall.
To determine corrosion activity of tank floors in service you can use Acoustic Emission or In Service Tank Robots. Robots have some limitations and can be expensive.
Once you take a tank out of service you should be looking at some form of overall floor scanning such as MFL or SLOFEC. Statistical coupon cutting or spot ultrasonics is an ineffective method and poses substantial risks of missing problem areas.
This is just a flavour of what needs to be considered

Re: Tank inspection You can use the ultrasonic thickness gauge T-Scope III
from Stresstel in addition to the MFL Inspektion in case,
p.ex. you use the MFL Scanner from the company 3P Services
You find there profile under : http://www.3p-services.com
if you look for new or used ultrasonic equipemnt, such
as T_Scope III from Stresstel ( new equipment ) or such
as Panametrics 26 DL Plus ( used equipment ) please contact
me directly under : firstname.lastname@example.org

Exertus Dual 120
The Exertus Dual 120 Projector has the ability to accept Iridium 192
sources or Selenium 75 source
s. This projector incorporates design
safety features that make it flexible, compact and lightweight.
The Projector is lighter than most of its competitors. It
incorporates an improved source channel, based on a new helicoidal
design, which makes maintenance easier. The helicoidal design also
allows smoother movement of the source assembly inside the device,
making it easier for the operator and improving safety. The
Projector also has a unique safety feature not found in competitive
The source assembly locking mechanism is triggered by the source
holder capsule at the front of the source assembly, thereby always
assuring the operator that the source has returned to the
safe position. The Exertus Dual 120 is ISO3999:2004 compliant.
