Bunded Oil Tanks are the standard of choice for Oil Storage central heating due to updated regulations on fire safety and the environment. Double skinned tanks protect the area around them from the environmentally hazardous oil inside. The outer skin forms a backup in case the inner tank fails. Without a bund, leaking oil seeps into the ground severely damaging the local ecosystem and your wallet!
Creating built-in Secondary Containment commonly involves starting with the plastic single skin variant of the tank. This inner tank stores the diesel oil and has the gauge and other equipment installed.
Two parts often form the outer tank, a larger lower bund of 110% capacity of the tank and an upper ‘lid’. In order to create the bund, the manufacturer attaches the lower ¾ of the bund to the original tank. The outer tank is complete when the two are attached to each other with the hatch built into the upper bund.
Oil Central Heating provides all the hot water to your home. That means your warm showers, washing machine, and dishwasher are all relying on your oil heating tank.
Your boiler will burn the oil when it is needed to heat your home too. Keeping your tank clean will always ensure that your boiler receives high-quality oil.
