Why to insist on SwRI 95-03 for your fire-rated tank

October 23, 2018 Why to insist on SWRI 95-03 for fire-rated tank

When you’re buying fire-rated tanks/ tanks that need to go into buildings or intense climates, insist on SwRI 95-03 certified tanks, why, because you can rest assured that you are purchasing the most durable and resilient tank on the market.

THE BENEFITS TO YOU

If the tank is compliant with SwRI 95-03 and there is damage done to the tank, (whether it is fire, impact or other) it can be repaired and re-used. Unlike other tanks which would need to be completely replaced.

IS THE SAME TANK TESTED FOR SwRI 95-03?

It sure is! The SwRI 95-03, 4-hour fire test involves an additional 2-hour fire exposure test using the same, fully assembled test tank for all tests.

HOW DO I KNOW IF MY TANK IS SwRI 95-03?

If it is a SuperVault tank it will have the Fuelchief SuperVault logo which looks like this:

It will have a stainless-steel certification signage provided by Fuelchief (in silver) and it will have a gold and black plate with a unique number allocated by the Southwest Research Institute for the SuperVault tank.
