07/02/19 Kansas City, MO – CST Industries, the world’s largest and leading bolted tank and aluminum dome manufacturer, has launched a new 360-degree view Virtual Reality Camera Assisted Inspection (CASSI) Service for dry bulk material stored in bolted and welded storage tanks. CASSI Tank Inspection Services are for situations that require interior inspection and observation of tanks while they remain in service.

Typically, tanks are taken out of service to be emptied and inspected directly by personnel, a process which can be hazardous, costly, time consuming and sometimes taking several days. CST’s new Virtual Reality CASSI Tank Inspection Services allows clients to instead utilize state-of-the-art camera equipment that is lowered from the top of the tank.  The internal inspection is performed above the product line without interrupting operations. The camera captures video footage and high-resolution images for complete inspection and documentation to evaluate and assess the tanks condition. When evidence of corrosion is detected, CST can make treatment recommendations, repairs and patch recoating or facilitate a complete tank refurbishment when needed.

“CST’s new Virtual Reality CASSI Tank Inspection Services will help our customers realize the overall condition of the interior of their tank, which will assist in identifying and budgeting for any necessary repairs.  All the work can be done while looking after their bottom line and keeping their tanks in service at the same time,” said Tom DeDonder, Vice President of Construction & Services at CST Industries. “CST also offers Master Service Agreements for Tank Repair & Inspection Services, providing a single source service to its customers.”

CST has 125 years of experience in the tank industry, with experienced tank crews to service any bolted or welded tank worldwide.
