Fuel tank supply, installation and commissioning

The chances are you check your oil level now and then but when did you last check your oil tank? Come to think of it, what should you be checking for?

Here are some points you should be aware of.

Modern oil storage tanks come in all shapes and sizes and can be made from plastic or steel. To minimise the risk of pollution from an oil spill, most modern tanks will incorporate secondary containment (a bund), which is achieved by using a double-skinned, integrally bunded tank.

It’s unlikely that a fire could be started by a domestic oil storage tank and its contents but tanks must comply with fire separation distances in order to adequately protect the stored fuel from a fire or heat source, that may originate nearby.

Then of course, you must have a suitable base and support for your oil tank for reasons of both safety and environmental protection.

Finally, oil tanks, like all heating products, have an expected working life (for modern, bunded tanks this is typically 20 years) and if they’re used beyond this time the risk of a costly tank failure increases.

We want to make sure that your oil tank won’t let you down when you need it most so, for a small fee* we’ll send our OFTEC Engineer to check your tank and advise you on any appropriate measures you need to take to ensure the security of your heating oil supply. Callow can supply, install and commission a wide range of Envirostore tanks and our experienced team will discuss and agree with you the best tank for your needs.

* Fee is £25.00 and is refundable if you purchase a tank from us

We also supply the Apollo Heating Oil Tank Gauge, an easy to retrofit, ultrasonic level indicator. The Apollo is made up of a transmitter that is installed at the tank, and a digital receiver that can be plugged inside the building to conveniently display the tank level.
