Tank inspections

KAR-Lehtonen offers its customers tank inspections with years of experience and expertise. Our background as a tank manufacturer guarantees that we have complete knowledge of tank technology and helps us find different types of structural wear. In addition to tanks, we also inspect all piping parts, actuators, vehicle equipment, and safety equipment related to the tanks – according to customer wishes. During the inspection, we also provide tank maintenance and repair services so that any deficiencies can be corrected efficiently and quickly. Without long-term downtime.

Our inspection services are utilized by transport companies, shipping operators, dispatching companies, and other entities using tank equipment. We offer inspection services to Finnish companies as well as operators in the Nordic and Baltic countries.

Expertise and prevention – comprehensive reporting

Regular inspections of equipment are an important preventive measure to locate any hidden problem areas. Tank inspections require a high level of professionalism, as the inspection is mainly carried out inside the tank.

Our experienced inspectors are thoroughly familiar with the structures of the tanks. They are trained to locate any creep and strain that could cause problems over time. When done in time, small repairs save the customer a lot of money, preventing larger equipment failures from developing.

The results of the inspection are reported to the customer comprehensively and in plain language,
so that a person unfamiliar with tank technology also gets a clear overview of the condition of the tank.
The findings of the inspection are presented objectively, and the report will include recommendations on possible follow-up measures.

The advantages of regularly inspected tank equipment include improved reliability and safety, as well as low downtime. Practice has shown that when a customer has us perform the inspection and maintenance, there is a 90% certainty the equipment will not need to be serviced before the next annual inspection.

Buying used? Ask us for an inspection.

We also provide our customers with an expert inspection service for third-party equipment, when considering investing in used tank equipment. Our experts will then be involved in assessing the condition of the equipment and helping to determine the correct price level.

This allows our customers to make profitable investments with confidence.

Full-service solutions for operators outside of Finland

Our location in the vicinity of the ports offers us the opportunity for efficient logistics and comprehensive service for operators outside of Finland. Once our customers have delivered their tank equipment to the ship, we take care of the rest.

We pick up the vehicle from the port and bring it to our own premises in Lieto. We then inspect, maintain, and repair the equipment and take care of the measures to return it. The repaired equipment will be delivered to the ship and will be back in use soon. All this we can offer at a competitive price.

We have extensive knowledge about the Nordic and Baltic regulatory requirements for ADR and pressure equipment.
Decades of cooperation with inspection bodies in different countries make us the most reliable partner for your cross-border operations.

We also document all inspection documents in an electronic archive so that inspection reports and calibration certificates are available to you anytime and anywhere.

Aarni Isotalo, Kuljetusliike Aarni Isotalo Oy

Kokemukseni on erittäin positiivinen KAR-Lehtosen toiminnasta. Kehitimme yrityksellemme uutta toimintaa ja siihen liittyen tilasin KAR-Lehtoselta alipaine/-imusäiliön ja meillä ei ole aiempaa kokemusta kyseisenlaisesta säiliöstä. Saimme yhteistyössä toteutettua juuri meille parhaan laitteen. KAR-Lehtonen oikeasti toteuttaa sen mitä asiakas haluaa ja pystyy myös asiakkaalle uusissa jutuissa antamaan neuvoa.

Matti Törmänen, Kuljetusliike Törmänen Oy

Vi har haft ett mycket gott samarbete med KAR-Lehtonen i över tjugo år. De har byggt ett antal olje-/ bitumen- och gassläp åt oss. De har även färdigställt alla våra tankbilar. Vi är väldigt nöjda med deras service.
