Case Study

DSA Tank Inspection - Orica Facility

Fibreglass tank

DSA has been lucky enough to conduct in-service inspections on vessels that we’ve designed. It is great to be able to see how the vessels perform with a number of different chemicals over time.
DSA has recently inspected a number of tanks for Orica. These have been in-service inspections and manufacturing inspections. Did you know we have inspectors with over 30 years of FRP experience?
Speaking of inspections, why do we specify no pigmentation coats for manufacturing inspection?
The two photos opposite are under the same lighting conditions. Pigmentation can hide defects as FRP is translucent.
