Oil Tank Guide
Bunded Oil Tanks
Bunded Oil Tanks have both an inner and outer tank. The inner tank is used to store the oil, whereas the outer tank, otherwise referred to as “the bund”, is actually used to protect the inner tank. Therefore if the inner tank splits, the oil is prevented from spilling out onto the floor by the outer bund. Bunded Tanks are considered to be environmentally friendly, and are the most recommended type of tank to have installed.
PlumbNation offer a range of Bunded Oil Tanks from the UK’s market leading manufacturers Polytank, whose Polyoil Storage Tank is one of our top selling products and not forgetting Titan, who manufacturer the Ecosafe Range.
Single Skin Oil Tanks
Single Skin Oil Tanks are simply one layer tanks, therefore referred to as “single skin”. They are commonly used for family dwellings, or areas that are not considered environmentally sensitive. In more environmentally sensitive areas, it is required that a Bunded Oil Tank is installed.
Titan offer a range for Single Skin Oil Tanks called Talking Tanks. Talking Tanks feature a packed system designed for domestic properties, and include an electronic oil monitoring system called Watchmansonic. The Watchmansonic allows the householder to monitor the fuel level of the Oil Tank from the property, which eliminates the need for a traditional sight gauge.
Fuel Storage Oil Tanks
Fuel Storage Tanks offer the perfect solution for providing safe and lockable on-site fuel storage. Suitable for Oil and diesel, Fuel Storage tanks are fully bunded (consisting of an inner and outer layer), so they are therefore more environmentally friendly. Fuel Storage Tanks enable storage and dispensing in one complete unit. Fuel Storage Tanks are ideal for commercial companies with transport vehicles, or alternatively Farmers with on-site fuel storage needs. Fuel Storage is convenient and cost effective, enabling you to save time and money by eliminating the use of fuel stations, and storing fuel on-site will also save on costs by bulk purchasing.
PlumbNation offer range of Fuel Storage Tanks from one of the UK’s market leading manufacturers Titan. Titan FuelMaster Range offer a completely safe and secure fuel storage and dispenser system, designed to meet the needs for any on-site fuel storage requirements.
Top and Bottom Outlet
Tanks are available with either a top or bottom outlet. Bottom outlets rely on gravity to feed the fuel from the tank, whereas top outlets require the use of a pump in order to pump the fuel upwards and out through the top of the tank.
