TankESPTM is a tank emissions calculation software product suite that uses the emission estimation procedures from Chapter 7 of U.S. EPA's Compilation of Air Pollutant Emission Factors (AP-42) for volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions from storage tanks. TankESP is widely regarded as the most accurate tank emission calculation tool on the market because it was designed by Rob Ferry, one of the authors of AP-42 Chapter 7.1 and American Petroleum Institute (API) documents 19.1, 19.2 and 19.4.
The TankESP Software Product Suite includes the TankESP PRO, TankESP FX and TankESP LT editions. This comprehensive set of products offers the same industry-leading tank emissions calculations software, but is available as three different editions that vary in capability and pricing to meet different levels of storage tank emission calculation requirements.Download the tech sheet
TankESP is a simple to use, intuitive program that contains tabular front-end input forms that allow for easy block copy and paste functions to quickly populate throughput and product data for routine emission calculations. TankESP also accommodates copying an existing site's data as a new site in order to easily create “what-if” scenarios for permitting purposes.The data entry forms accept input from the user to be stored in the database and can also be used to view or edit the data already...

Both Site and Meteorological Data include forms that enable users to add, edit and remove site details and meteorological data sets. Users can add multiple Sites in the database, and can choose to include meteorological data from three sources: Pre-2018 AP42, Post-2018 AP42 or as defined by the user. Learn more
The Stocks form allows users to add, edit or view information concerning the Stocks (stored liquids) and Pure Chemicals in the database. A Stock is a material that is entered into the database and is available for selection as the liquid stored in a Tank. A Pure Chemical is a compound that can be a component (constituent) of a Stock, available for estimating and reporting as a separate (speciated) air pollutant.For each Stock, you can specify which Pure Chemical components are to be included...

This form allows users to enter or edit service data on a tank-by-tank basis for a given time period. The Routine Data that can be entered in this form includes:Tank ID - Tank identification number Start Date/Time Throughput - Corresponding to net changes in liquid levelThroughput Unit - Options include Barrels, Gallons, or FeetStock - Liquid stored in the Tank from the drop-down listStock RVP - This field allows overriding the given Reid vapor pressure (RVP) and may be used, for example, when...

TankESP enables users to view results of annual and monthly emissions estimation calculations and results of short-term* (pound/hour) emissions estimates. Errors in calculations are also noted in the results and an error message is available for more information on the error. The software also provides details on Speciated Standing Emissions within that particular total or subtotal of VOC emissions, with results for each chemical that has been selected for speciation.Users can view reports that...
