Oil Storage Tanks

Bunded oil storage tanks are made to regulation and used to store hazardous substances, such as diesel oil. They differ from other oil storage tanks, such as ‘single skin tanks’ because they have a secondary containment tank which holds 110% of the capacity of the inner tank . This means that if any oil leaks from the main storage tank, the fuel will still be safely contained within the exterior tank to prevent it spilling out onto the ground.

We can fit these out with a wide range of products such as fuel polishing systems, gauges and alarms so you can monitor the maintenance, level and use of your product. These can all be housed inside security cabinets. We can construct these in single compartment or multi compartment so you can store different oil products in the one unit.

We supply and fit our domestic tanks including oil transfer and removal of old tank. Existing cylindrical tanks can easily be replaced with one of our rectangular designs. We also stock larger tanks and can manufacture tanks to suit individual requirements. We supply and fit our oil storage tanks including oil transfer and removal and decommissioning of old tanks.

About Oil Storage Tanks

There are two types of oil storage tanks: bulk storage tanks and portable tanks. Bulk storage tanks are permanent tanks designed for underground or above-ground storage of large quantities of crude oil, pure fuel, or fuel products. Portable tanks can be used to temporarily store crude oil, pure fuel, or fuel products.

Oil Storage Tank Types

Oil Storage Tanks can be of the following two types:

1. Fixed Roof Tanks: Fixed roof tanks that have slight fluctuation in storage volume belong to low-pressure tanks and are of the following types: Cone Roof Tank and Dome Roof Tank. Cone Roof Storage Tank has vertical sides and is equipped with a fixed cone-shaped roof that is welded to the tank shell. A Dome Roof Tank has steep sides and is equipped with an internal floating roof or pan which floats directly on the fuel surface.

2. Floating Roof Tanks: Floating roof tanks are low-pressure tanks with a floating roof located directly on the fuel surface. Floating roofs are used on tanks that store volatile products and oils of the medium, low flashpoint (below 200°F).
