Do the tanks meet Australian Standards?
Yes … all our tanks are manufactured to Australian Standards AS1940 (The storage and handling of flammable and combustible liquids) and AS1692 (Steel tanks for flammable and combustible liquids) including bare tanks. Platform, walkways, ladders and stairs are manufactured to AS1657.
Our tanks come complete with suction foot valve, overfill protection and electronic overfill alarms for your safety and protection.
Please refer to our specifications sheet on each tank to confirm what is included with the tank.
What size tanks are available?
What can I store in your tanks?
Fuelco has tanks suitable for the safe storage and handling of fuels such as diesel and ULP or petrol. Our tanks can also be used to store lubricants such as engine oils and coolant or waste oil.
In addition to this, we can supply tanks with an inner stainless steel tank or an epoxy coating for other fuels such as aviation fuels or liquids such as Adblue™.
We suggest you talk to a Fuelco representative on what is optimal for your storage needs.
What flow rate should I have for filling?
We suggest you talk to a Fuelco representative on what would be optimal for your application. There is a vast range of pumping equipment available from filling cars at 40 litres per minute to filling tankers in excess of a 1000 litres per minute.
Also, quoted flow rates at pump can vary dramatically once you add piping, flow meter, filters, hose reels and ancillary equipment … and the flow rate at nozzle can be very disappointing. We can size the pumping equipment optimal for your application.
Can I monitor the fuel usage and prevent theft?
Can I monitor the fuel levels in the tank?
Yes … there is a fluid level dip stick provided as standard with the tank to check fuel levels.
Access to the fluid level dip stick is available via the inspection platform and ladder (pump bay models) or an optional inspection ladder can be fitted (no pump bay models).
Alternatively we can fit Automatic Tank Gauging (ATG) on the tank to prevent climbing onto tanks and this can also be interfaced with the FMS to online monitor it remotely.
