Fuel Tanks and How to Find Them Right?

Kent   February 6, 2020   Comments Off on Fuel Tanks and How to Find Them Right?

We don’t usually see fuel tanks as a rapidly changing product. Unlike cars, manufacturers don’t need to implement structural changes to them, every now and then. But an increasing number of manufacturers of fuel containment system are beginning to see that there is a pressing need to design fuel storage solutions that will cater to the requirements of modern businesses.

Such types of fuel storage tanks should come with a cloud-based remote fuel monitoring system, global transportation approvals and a dedicated storage unit for diesel exhaust liquid.  

Fuel Tank Universal Expense

Contractors around the globe consider diesel essentially as a universal expense. While the construction sphere is enjoying its sustained growth and become even more competitive on a global scale, the anticipated profit margins of most businesses that failed to come up with efficient ways to control and manage their assets, fuel storage including, will continue to shrink.  

Nowadays, unlike before the vast majority of our on-site fuel storage tanks are capable of simplifying fuel management. And because of that, they stand more of an asset and not just huge steel cylinders that they were once. 

To get the most value from your fuel tank purchase, there are a few points you need to take into account. This will include the maintenance and cleaning costs, theft prevention, tank transportation, fuel monitoring and more.  

Fuel capacity and mobility

The bigger tank size that you have, the more stationary it becomes. With standing options on tanks that are capable of containing less than 550 liters of high-value liquid to ISO containment systems that can hold upwards around 95,000 liters, identifying the ideal solution begins by knowing the amount of fuel that is being consumed together with the fuel supply mobility requirements.

After all, having a fuel supply on-site will only serve its intended purpose of saving you money and time if it can provide you with an ample amount where and when you need it.  

Transportation options may go from lifting lugs to manage with a crane down to DOT-sealed trailers. Smaller-sized, DOT-marked trailer-mounted tanks are the options that are most easily transported. 

Typical for these types of tanks to hold between 750 and 3,800 liters of liquid fuel, and are ideal for use in delivering liquid fuel to far-flung remote sites.

Other equally important things you need to look for when shopping for a trailer-mounted liquid storage system includes a robust trailer, designed and engineered to endure the strong and dynamic forces that are inherent to moving liquid while traversing unpaved and rough roads at job sites.  

Site-Specific Considerations

It is normal for different construction sites to have their own specific needs. To meet those needs, you need to make an honest assessment which of those has the potential for increasing the value of a given operation.

For example, tanks that come in multiple-in and out-ports lets the tank to function as an auxiliary fuel supply while catering to fuel other equipment and trucks. 

Such scenarios inevitably extend runtimes for light towers and generators. They even mitigate the risk of them getting dry. 

Remote Jobsite Fuel

One of the benefits of having your remote-tracking technology is that it can help in paying up dividends. Contractors can manage and monitor their supplies from where they may be and do it via the cloud with the help of a remote fuel tracking system. 

This allows contractors who are handling multiple projects in many different sites to easily stay on top of supply for their fuel and determine when would be the right time that delivery is necessary.
