Department of Transportation Testing and Inspection Requirements

Since your cargo tank is expected to hold hazardous materials, it needs to be able to hold those materials in a safe and secure way. That’s why the DoT requires your tank to go through a battery of inspections and tests. These procedures include:

  • External Visual Inspection (V) – Annual Test
  • Leakage Test (K) – Annual Inspection
  • Internal Visual Inspection (I) – Five-Year Test
  • Pressure Test (P) – Five-Year Test
  • Thickness Test (T) – Two-Year Test
  • Upper Coupler Inspection (UC) – Five-Year Test

Annual and Five-Year Inspections and Test

When you choose White Tank & Truck Repair, we can perform all of your yearly cargo tank inspections and tests to meet specifications from the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA). We perform your external visual inspection (V) in accordance with section 180.407(d) to inspect the external condition of your tank. We can also perform a leakage test (K) in accordance with section 180.407(h) to inspect the package and piping for leakages.
