Q. Why does the tank base have to measure 300mm around the perimeter of the oil tank?
A. The fire protection provided by the base is to help prevent the tank itself from becoming overgrown and in turn to help protect against fire spreading across the ground to the contained fuel from another source. If the tank is raised on piers, the platform supporting the tank should be sized to sufficiently support the tank. Reference should be made to the tank manufacturer’s installation instructions.
Q. What is the life expectancy of an oil storage tank?
A. Most plastic bunded oil tanks come with a 10 year manufacturers’ warranty and when properly installed and maintained can last for many years beyond its expiration date. Fuel pumping and tank equipment usually comes with the standard manufacturers 1 year warranty. The tanks that are available at RPM Fuels and Tanks are constructed using the best base materials and the most reliable fittings to ensure you’re provided with the best possible oil storage solution.
Q. What should I look for in an oil storage tank?
A. There are a number of standards that your oil tank should comply with including the BS EN ISO 9001. All plastic and steel oil tanks should be manufactured to OFTEC, OFS T100 (plastic) and OFS T200 (steel BS799-5) standards. When finding the right oil storage tank there are a few specifications to bear in mind:
Q. Is the tank made by an OFTEC registered manufacturer to OFS T100 or OFS T200?
A. Is constructed using suitable materials
Ensure that you check the quality of the oil tank, making sure it is sufficiently strong & long lived by asking if the tank is of sufficient strength and structural integrity
Check if the oil storage tank incorporates a way of preventing leakage by capillary action by gravity if a fuel line is cut. These measures can come in the form of top off-take and / or isolation check valves
Ensure that the installer or supplier informs you of the minimum design and manufacturing standards under the appropriate accredited quality assurance scheme
