Industries across the world need to ensure they are compliant when it comes to storing hazardous liquids such as petrol, diesel or chemicals. Fuelchief take the hassle out of this by engineering a compliant, customised fuel tank called the SuperVault®. This engineered fuel tank is 4-hour fire-rated and is recommended due to its fire protective safety for commercial sectors. The SuperVault® tank has been designed, fabricated and tested in accordance with SwRI 95-03, offering elite fire-rated, bulletproof, impact-resistant technology. This makes the SuperVault 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 has been engineered to withstand extreme conditions – from the sub-zero temperature of the Arctic, to the blistering heat of the desert. No other fuel storage system in the world can provide a higher level of certified fire protection, insulation, and fuel security than a Fuelchief SuperVault.

Multi-Hazard Approved

Around the world, new codes of practice and legislation often require all fire tanks to be either SwRI 95-03 or UL2084 (2 hour) approved; the SuperVault is both. It is the only 4-hour fireproof petrol tank certified 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 fore, hose steam, 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.

*IMPORTANT NOTE* Insist on SwRI 95-03 as it is the only fire-rated tank in the world that can be repaired and re-used after the fire or event has occurred. The 95-03, 4-hour fire test involves an additional 2-hour fire exposure test using the same, fully assembled test tank for all tests.

In the event of a fire, the integrity of any tank certified to UL-2085 (2 hour) or SwRI 95-03 (4 hour) will be deemed to have been compromised and will not be compliant after the event.
