Storage Tank Sludge and Bottoms
This image shows measurement of paraffin or sludge levels in a crude storage tank. Paraffin levels appear as a heat differential banding in the tank. The levels are quite high in this image, imaged and confirmed at almost 4 meters. There are also some bottoms (likely water, sand, rust, etc.) apparent in the lower portion of the tank.
