Zerust Vapor Corrosion Inhibitors (VCIs) Are A Cost-Effective Way to Control Corrosion. Zerust Oil & Gas ReCAST Soil Side Bottom solutions provide a cost-effective means to mitigate underside corrosion of aboveground storage tanks while the tanks are in or out of service. Whether tank single or double bottoms rest on compacted sand, concrete, soil or bitumen, Zerust Oil & Gas has a solution to extend the serviceable life of these assets. Listed below are Zerust’s methods of introducing a VCI to the tank bottom environment, based on the design of the foundation and whether the tank is in service or out of service.
Zerust patented Recast SSB Chime Ring Dry solution is recommended for storage tanks with concrete or bitumen foundations. Vapor Corrosion Inhibitors are introduced through Zerust’s dry sleeve system while the tank is in service. The perforated PVC pipe is installed ari=oundthe entire annular chime areaThe VCI dry sleeves are installed into the PVC chime ring and the system is sealed to create an enclosure to maintain the VCIs. The VCI migrate and absorb on to the metal surface. The diffusion of VCI provides corrosion protection in the critical 3 to 4 meters from the annular chime ring.
