Surveyors should embrace this technology and use it to expand their businesses and the profession overall." – Carlos Fournier, President, Mforce Surveying, PSC Tank inspection tools in Trimble RealWorks software reveal changes in roundness and verticality in tank shells. Best fit cylinder analysis provides visual tools for deformation analysis. The accuracy of the SX10 scanning was essential for the work. "When you looking for deflection of one or two inches on a tank over 200 feet in diameter, you must have complete confidence in your measurements," Fournier explained. "Some of the deformations occurred high up on the tank walls and could not have been detected without the accurate scanning." The tank farm operators used the results from Mforce to make informed decisions about repairs and maintenance work on the tanks. Fournier's experience at Yabucoa is part of his strategic approach to the company's growth. Scanning is a key part of Mforce's success, with projects including tanks, buildings, civil infrastructure and the Arecibo radio telescope.
