At Tank Services, we have the industry experience to handle most types and sizes of storage tanks but have the flexibility to tailor our services to your exact requirements. We handle work from the smaller workshop tanks to the largest commercial fuel installations, above ground and underground tanks. Our most frequent service is the oil tank replacement that consists of the following basic steps:
Firstly we carry out an on-site survey on Oil tank replacements and new oil or diesel tank installations and discuss your requirements. Secondly, we give an ‘Oil Storage Risk Assessment” and explain how to comply with the current oil storage regulations for your site. Further, in most cases, we will be able to provide a written quotation for the work proposed within two working days.
For commercial and industrial sites we’ll agree and work to a site risk assessment and method statement and issue waste transfer notices and gas-free certificates where appropriate. As a result, we carry out all our installations and redundant tank removals work to industry best working practice and Environment Agency guidelines. Moreover, our ISO9001 certified management team back up our work and it is fully insured.
Our standard annual commercial tank services include a visual inspection of the tank and pipework and clearing of the oil feed pipe with compressed air. Subsequently followed by leak pressure testing of the pipe, cleaning or replacing oil filters and a water dip test to see if any water is present in the oil which can be a costly experience. Because water entering the fuel system will cause mechanical damage, repair bills and unexpected downtime of appliances and machinery which is costly and inconvenient. For system-critical fuel tanks such as back-up generators for data centres and hospitals, more frequent inspections and water tests are highly recommended.
All our work is carried out by our fully trained and OFTEC qualified engineers. So you can be sure of a high standard of knowledge and workmanship.
