The Internal Flood IDS solution is suitable for tank foundations of concrete, bitumen, or compacted sand with liners. Low-viscosity inhibitor slurry is pumped into one or more temporary injection ports installed in selected locations through the tank floor. The VCIs emitted by the slurry migrate and absorb onto the metal surface. The SCIs work to neutralize any contaminants it may contact on either the bottom plates or foundation. The multiple injection points allow for quick dispersion of the slurry across the entire tank bottom.
