A local agricultural contractor based in Staffordshire recently sold a tank unlike any other he has sold before, and has since secured another of the same.
The bespoke steel fire protected fuel tank was fitted with standard fuel station equipment but with an additional 6 metres of delivery hose to accommodate a further reach in order to fill Bateman sprayers. The tank was manufactured to dimensions 3m (L) x 1.5m (W) x 1.5m (H) and would hold a capacity of almost 5000 litres. The tank was fitted with a 60 minute fire protection material fitted integrally that would allow the tank to be sited within a building whilst being fully compliant with regulations, and a cabinet built in to the side of the tank that would be accessible via a small exterior section of the building that would be fully lockable when not in use.
The tank will be used to fill three Bateman sprayers as well as forklifts and tractors on site. The end user required a fully secure fuel storage solution with limited access, and the Tuffa Tank was the ideal solution. The end user was said to be ‘delighted’ with the tank.
