Corrosion Prevention In Storage Tanks: Useful Insights By One Of The Leading Mechanical Engineering Companies in Kenya

Storage tanks are widely used in a diverse range of industries, such as edible oil, petroleum, and more. One of the biggest challenges facing storage tank users is corrosion. It is the gradual degradation of materials, typically metals, through a chemical reaction with their environment. This process often involves the oxidation of the metal, where it reacts with oxygen and moisture, leading to the formation of oxides or other compounds. Corrosion can significantly weaken materials, causing structural failures, leaks, and other issues that can compromise the safety and functionality of equipment.
