Re: tank's plate lamination- evaluation
The issue with laminations - is not necessarily that they exist - there are many tanks and other structures with delaminations present. The issue is "Do they connect in some way?" I.E. do the seperate parallel delaminations - have "tentacles" that span the perpendicular directions between the individual delaminations.

There are UT techniques to determine if they are present - and the presence of those tentacles can GREATLY weaken the structure. Delaminations on their own, may be OK.

Hope that helps a little.

Re: tank's plate lamination- evaluation
Look at API RP 579 Fitness For Service Section 7.

Level 1 a Lamination is acceptable regardless of size so long as it is more than 1.8 x Square Root of D (inside Shell diameter) x tnom (where tnom is the nominal wall thickness)

If you need more specific assistance or an independnet evaluation please contact us.
