How much pressure can tanks and containers take?


What happens when soil presses on a tank underground? Does the material deform, do perhaps cracks appear? Are the connections still in the right place? That’s what our tank and container experts at Applus+ IMA Dresden examine in relevant tests. Specifically, the team can carry out static internal pressure tests, negative pressure tests, deformation measurements and wall thickness determinations. However, not only approval-tests for DIBt, but also the monitoring of unpressurised tanks is part of the daily routine for the testers. Applus+ IMA Dresden does not limit itself to the tests in its own halls – the colleagues also take a close look at the manufacturer of the containers and are responsible for the external monitoring according to state building regulations.
