A bunded fuel storage tank designed for the future
An inner fuel storage tank externally stiffened and with a sloping hopper style bottom.
The fuel tank design comprises a primary storage tank without internal structure to enable ease of cleaning and internal inspection.
The primary fuel tank is enclosed by an outer steel bund that fully complies with the control of pollution regulations.
The base of the bunded fuel tank has a sloping hopper style bottom to a sump. The sump is serviced by a 25mm sludge drain pipe accessible from the tank top.
The incorporation of sloping bases and sumps helps reduce the frequency of tank cleaning as water and contaminants will easily drain into the sump. Residues are extracted via the sludge drain pipe which runs from the tank top to the sump.
With develping Bio-Fuels water content and bacterial growth is becoming more of a problem in fuel storage tanks; regular tank cleaning and inspections are now necessary.
The fuel tank design also includes correctly positioned manway inspection points to allow tank cleaning without man entry. This reduces the need for confined space entry health and safety procedures.
The Bio-Envirotank can be split into compartments for gas oil/diesel/oils/Adblu and process liquids. Internal tank linings can easily be applied due to the unrestrictive internal tank construction.
External manways and connections are enclosed within a steel secure hatch which is padlockable to prevent tampering.
End or side mounted security cabinets can be fitted with steel or roller shutter doors and integral spillage trays, to house pipework, fuel pumps, fuel tank gauges, alarms and controls.
