Tuffa Launch New Lubrication Oil Tank Range

lube oil tank

We have been manufacturing bulk liquid storage and dispensing tanks for over 30 years including diesel, petrol, oil and waste oil tanks. During this time we have received numerous requests to manufacture bespoke lubrication tanks from customers in a wide range of industries. Due to the positive feedback and increasing number of enquiries we’ve received, we have decided to manufacture a range of standardised lubrication oil tanks. By committing to additional research and development in this product, and streamlining the production line, we are now able to offer our customers the same high-quality tanks but at a more cost-effective rate and with reduced lead times.

Why Use Lube Oil Tanks?

Purchasing a lubrication oil tank has numerous advantages especially when compared to other storage solutions such as oil drums. Firstly, the large storage capacity enables you to benefit from incremental savings from bulk buying your lubrication. These savings will also be multiplied with the reduced frequency of deliveries and inevitable costs involved.

There are also a number of practical benefits associated with owning a lubrication oil tank. The premium ancillary equipment (including electric and air operated pumps) enable quick, clean and efficient dispensing with accurate flowmeters and gauges so you know exactly how much oil you have dispensed and the quantity of oil remaining. This is essential for machinery requiring precise measurements of lubrication.

Our lubrication tanks offer your businesses greater safety and environmental protection. Bunded tanks offer the highest protection against spills, leaks and overfilling and for that reason are fast becoming the norm or even a site requirement for oil stored in bulk.

Not only do lube tanks offer greater protection from oil spills, but they can increase the safety procedures for the entire site. By having all of the dispensing equipment housed in one secure unit you can contain drips. This removes the need for individual oil barrels which often have a bigger combined footprint and are more susceptible to spillage with equipment swapped from barrel to barrel.
