Tanknology Inc., a leading provider of environmental compliance testing and inspection services, announced the launch of the STS ProTec Sump Corrosion Treatment and Prevention program.

The STS ProTec Sump Corrosion Treatment and Prevention program allows site owners to prevent environmental contamination and costly component replacement by reconditioning and repairing sumps affected by corrosion.

The STS ProTec sump treatment process is performed by a trained Tanknology technician and begins with a full inspection and documentation of the condition of each sump, followed by a thorough cleaning using a rust removing gel that eliminates corrosion on carbon steel, cast iron, brass, copper, steel and stainless steel components. Each metallic component is then brushed with a high-build epoxy coating that is chemical, corrosion and abrasion resistant, thereby rendering each sump, not only clear of corrosion, but fully resistant to further contamination. The process does not require 30, 60 or 90-day re-application.

“The presence of higher ethanol blends in gasoline has increased and accelerated the occurrence of corrosion on fueling components in sumps,” said Allen Porter, President and CEO of Tanknology. “Our new STS ProTec program aims to eliminate that corrosion safely, with little cost and minimal forecourt disruption.”
