Seismic Stabalizers are now on the market to safeguard 300, 400, or 500-bbl oil and gas tanks from earthquakes and other seismic activity.
The patent-pending seismic base is constructed of 8-in. square tubing and heavy plate for a weight of 10,800 lb. This combines with the weight of a tank and its contents to create a restraint for up to 6.0 magnitude earthquakes, declares the manufacturer.
The finished 15 x 15-ft Seismic Stabalizer, engineered by Cyntergy in Tulsa Oklahoma, comes in two-piece modular design. It's easily transported without permits and unloaded/installed with a standard telehandler typically used to build tank batteries. It takes about 1 hr to bolt the unit together using standard tools and wrenches.
The tank and base have tie-down brackets to secure them. All bolts and accessories come with the package. The base is designed for easy reuse and relocation.
