Summary of Key Features
Industries across the world need to ensure they are compliant when it comes to storing dangerous liquids such as petrol, diesel or chemicals alongside power generators in a building. Fuelchief take the hassle out of this by engineering a compliant customised fuel tank called the SuperVault™ MH Fuel Tank. This engineered fuel tank is 4-hour fire-rated and is recommended due to its fire protective safety for commercial sectors. The SuperVault tank offers elite fire-rated, bullet-proof, impact-resistant technology which makes it the safest and most durable tank in the world. In many circumstances where diesel or petrol needs to be stored in commercial buildings, the SuperVault is the only permitted tank. The SuperVault’s has been engineered to withstand conditions – from the sub-zero temperature of the Arctic to the blistering heat of the desert. No other fuel storage system can provide a higher level of fire protection, insulation, and fuel security than a Fuelchief SuperVault.
Around the world, new codes of practice and legislation require all fire tanks to be either SwRI 95-03 or UL 2085 approved; the SuperVault is both. It is the only 4-hour fireproof petrol tank to pass the toughest test for above ground petrol tanks, according to the Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) (Texas, USA) 95 – 03 multi-hazard test. During this test, despite being subjected to fire, water, projectiles and heavy-vehicle impact; the integrity of the SuperVault’s primary tank remained intact. This tank is also a popular choice for solvents, which often has the same “flashpoint” as petrol.
No additional bunding is required for the SuperVault. Engineered and constructed for maximum protection, the SuperVault’s outer steel tank provides secondary containment as well as protecting the inner tank from the elements of nature and fire. The secondary containment petrol tank conforms to international requirements and is both pressure and vacuum testable on site.
The insulation provides maximum thermal protection to the internal steel tank. This insulation material reduces heat transfer from the outer tank to the inner tank, therefore minimising the risk of an environmental disaster or the event of a pool fire. The porous nature of the insulating material allows for monitoring of leakage from the primary tank. In hot climates, the insulation minimises fuel losses due to evaporation. The SuperVault emergency vent controls the pressure in the tank in extreme fire conditions to eliminate explosion.
A 30-year warranty is offered, providing the fuel tank is installed and maintained in accordance with the industry standards, including de-watering of the primary tank.
