Tank Optimization

Cross Company Tank Optimization Program

The Cross Company Tank Optimization Program is an in-depth review of all tank accessories on your site by a highly qualified Cross technical expert.

We look at all aspects of your tank assembly, providing a comprehensive deep dive into the safety, maintenance, and operation of all your tank accessories.

When we’re done, you’ll receive a physical report of our findings detailing which tanks are operating as intended and which are damaged, obsolete, or in need of work. This report will provide you with actionable steps to fix any potential problems and get all your tanks to top quality.

Why Tank Optimization Benefits You

If a component of your production process was performing suboptimally, wouldn’t you want to know about it? Providing the data to ensure that every tank involved in your particular process is just what our Tank Optimization Program does. Besides the benefit of more efficient production, the T.O.P. also gives peace of mind and actionable data.

Our technical expert will examine and record all aspects of your tanks. Not only will they note locations and specifications, but they will also record any hazards or potential hazards they come across. This allows you to address issues before they become critical – or worse – deadly.

The tank optimization program gives you a wealth of data about your facility. Use it to check against inventories, develop preventative maintenance (PM) programs, consolidate vendors, showcase your batching capability and capacity, or create a timeline for replacement parts.

How We Optimize Tanks

Our expert will spend multiple days on your site while staying out of the way of day-to-day operations.

All of our experts have been through health and safety training for industrial manufacturing sites and will have the correct PPE, as well as an awareness of the hazards that exist.

Expect them to get dirty, however, crawling under tanks or climbing to the top of assemblies in order to gather the data they need. An escort by one of your employees will be helpful to guide them around the facility and speed your review.

Tank Optimization Program Deliverables

In its simplest form, you’ll get a consolidated, hard copy report with a summary, recommendations and your tank data. All of the information about your facility’s tanks will be at your fingertips.

This powerful data can be used for many things, including

Vendor Consolidation

Ensuring Your Records Match Your Operating Equipment

Creating A PM Plan With Priorities

Creating A Timeline And Budget For Proactive Part Replacement

Ensuring You're Ready For The Next EPA Or Safety Audit

Tank Optimization Case 1

Our customer is an international chemical manufacturer with 950 staff, on-site engineering and multiple manufacturing locations. Cross Company spent two days reviewing the accessories on their 71 tanks. We found only 13.5% of their tanks were physically in compliance with current safety standards and none of them met current EPA standards for pressure and vacuum protection data.

T.O.P. Observations

A collapsed tank
Wrong rupture disc installed or no disc at all
Improper wiring in Class I, Div I hazardous area
Misaligned flanges

T.O.P. Benefits

Increase safety
Decrease plant operations costs
Improve production
Decrease batch rate
Increase plant readiness for EPA inspections
Secure reduced risk position for employees liability insurance

The Results

This customer acted on their T.O.P. data and plans to have their remaining 94 tanks reviewed. In addition to addressing the missing or damaged tank protection, they are also reviewing all pressure and vacuum protections for vendor consolidation. Overall, the customer found that joining the program helped them increase safety, decrease cost, increase up time, decrease batch rate, increase EPA inspection readiness and improve their insurance position.

Tank Optimization Case 2

Another customer is a small batch chemical production facility with limited engineering and a staff of 42. After a four day review of the equipment on their 59 tanks we found that only 10% of their tanks were physically in compliance with current safety standards.

T.O.P. Observations

Two collapsed tanks
No PM plan or safety stock for pressure relief valves, PSV’s, or rupture discs
Improper installation of rupture discs and holders
Open outlet gauge taps

T.O.P. Benefits

Increase safety
Decrease plant operations costs
Improve production
Decrease batch rate
Increase plant readiness for EPA inspections
Secure reduced risk position for employees liability insurance

The Results

The customer purchased new protections for prioritized or dangerous tanks. Their safety manager required staff to review all of the T.O.P data and to bring their tank equipment into compliance. By doing so, they have increased the safety of their site, increased their EPA inspection readiness, increased machine up time and decreased the number of lost batches.
