Similarly all roof structure members shall be cut to required size, copper blasted painting as pr requirement shall be completed and then proceed for fabrication of Roof structure /cross girder assly. After fabrication and before erection heat affected zone shall be painted for final coat. 2. All bottom plates shall be prefabricated, copper blasted and painting is completed with all respect for erection and welding of bottom plates. 3. All internals shall be pre fabricated / copper blasted and final coat painted before erection. However Oil through shall be copper blasted and covered with adhesion paper to avoid cleaned surface contamination with atmospheric contamination to lead rust. After erection adhesion paper shall be dismantled and proceed for final painting. 4. After complete erection of Tank shells, Roof structures and all other internals proceed for copper blasting of tank internal shell surface, however shell course No 1, shall not be closed to form full tank. This sis to avoid dust particles to escape from tank inside area to prevent contamination with tank internal shell surface while painting hold primer. 5. After complete copper blast and primer paint of tank internal shell surfaces, while 1st shell is still open, cover the tank open area by temporary cloth to avoid spreading of copper grits to escape while copper blasting of bottom plate and annular plate. Complete the bottom plate and annular plate primer paint and thus completing the copper blasting and primer painting on all internal surfaces of the tank. 6. Now clean the all internal surfaces of tank shell plates including all internals by water and thus preparing the tank internal surface ready for Vinyl Easter Glass flake paint as per specification requirement. 7.

Calibration Method
a). Vertical Calibration For use of Optical calibration a reference circumference is required. This is obtained by taking the average circumference of the bottom plate course, which is measured by strapping either continuously or for larger tanks in series of areas by the use of calibrated master tape. Reference strapping is taken at 80% from the bottom of the course. On the reference circumference stations are marked at equal intervals around the tank wall, the number of optical perpendicular stations. This is obtained by the following formula. Stations = Circumference in meter 6 (Rounded the nearest even number of stations with the minimum of 8 stations and maximum of 24 stations)

The horizontal stations shall be chosen to insure that the vertical transverse of the trolley along the shell at any given station shall be at least 300mm from the vertical weld seam and their should be no interference in its line of travel. For any given horizontal station, a minimum of two vertical stations is established for each course at 20% and 80%.

At the first station the theodolite in set up with its standing axis at a known distance from the tank wall. The movable scale assembly is placed against the tank wall and pulled upwards until the graduated rule is at the same level as eyepiece of the theodolite a reading on the graduated rule is taken. Subsequently reading is then taken at all required levels. Two reading per course minimum. b). Bottom Calibration Similar number of horizontal stations marked inside the tank at equal distance around the circumference. Vertical stations are taken from the center of the tank to the inside of the wall, 5M apart with the first station at 0.5M from the wall.

METHOD STATEMENT FOR SETTLING TANK ERECTION USING JACK LIFTING METHOD

By placing a water tube at the center of the tank and taking reading with a water tube at each vertical station, the profile of the tank bottom can be obtained. From this profile the volume can be calculated using the correct formula for the geometrical shape for the floor with irregular configuration. c). Deadwood Measurements

The entire deadwood is accurately accounted for as to the volume and location in order to permit adequate allowances for volumes of liquid displaced by various objects and allocation of these effects at various elevations within the tanks.

d). Computation of Capacity Table Once the field measurements have been carried out the accumulated data is input onto our computer program to obtain the tank table on recommended format of non-tearable tracing paper showing the capacity in liters at every 1 cm depth and fractions in mm to interpolate dip readings and get the Calibration Chart duly certified and Approved by Competent Government Authority. A Soft copy of EXCEL file of Tank Capacity table shall also be submitted to load tank capacity in the tank gauging system.
