Inspecting Tank Vehicles

Placeholder Georgia Other

Tank vehicles have special items that you need to check. Tank vehicles come in many types and sizes. You need to check the vehicle’s operator manual to make sure you know how to inspect your tank vehicle.

8.1.1 – Leaks

On all tank vehicles, the most important item to check for is leaks. Check under and around the vehicle for signs of any leaking. Don’t carry liquids or gases in a leaking tank. To do so is a crime. You will be cited and prevented from driving further. You may also be liable for the clean up of any spill. In general, check the following:

  • Check the tank’s body or shell for dents or leaks.
  • Check the intake, discharge, and cut-off valves. Make sure the valves are in the correct position before loading, unloading, or moving the vehicle.
  • Check pipes, connections, and hoses for leaks, especially around joints.
  • Check manhole covers and vents. Make sure the covers have gaskets and they close correctly. Keep the vents clear so they work correctly.

8.1.2 – Check Special Purpose
Equipment

If your vehicle has any of the following equipment, make sure it works:

  • Vapor recovery kits.
  • Grounding and bonding cables.
  • Emergency shut-off systems.
  • Built in fire extinguisher.

Never drive a tank vehicle with open valves or manhole covers.

8.1.3 – Special Equipment

Check the emergency equipment required for your vehicle. Find out what equipment you’re required to carry and make sure you have it (and it works).
