Transportable fuel tank eliminates spills and contamination

Transcube introduces 100TCG transportable bulk diesel fuel tank.

Norwalk, Conn., September 20, 2010—Delivering a solution for environmentally friendly deployment of bulk diesel fuel, Transcube introduces the 100TCG to its line of transportable fuel tanks. The new double-walled tank offers a special total containment design to eliminate the risk of spills and contamination.

Providing an impressive capacity of 2,450 gallons, the 100TCG is ideal for feeding large portable generators and many other applications that require a larger supply of diesel. The tank is designed with an inner fuel container enclosed within a steel-constructed, weatherproof outer wall that ensures 110-percent integral secondary containment—in contrast to traditional tanks that require a separate containment pan.

All fill ports, pumps, fittings and connections are housed within a full height cabinet. The cabinet, which includes a drip collection sump, is completely within the tank’s secondary containment area. For optimal security against theft or tampering, the cabinet door features a three-point locking system. The unit includes a PN16 flange for double-walled pipework requirements and is capable of feeding up to two generators while simultaneously fueling equipment with a separate nozzle.

The 100TCG is equipped for simple handling regardless of jobsite logistics. Forklift pockets are accessible on all four sides of the tank, while lifting eyes on the top corners allow the empty tank to be lifted, raised or lowered by a crane. Additionally, the rectangular, compact shape of the tank allows for economical storage and transportation.

Maintenance and inspection of the tanks is simple thanks to a manhole and interior access ladder, which allows a person to easily access and clean the inner chamber and compartments. Featuring rugged, all-steel construction and galvanized bumper strip along the corner posts and around the upper perimeter for added protection, the tanks are backed by a 5-year warranty.

Transcube offers several pumps, fittings and other optional tools, including electric and manual transfer pumps, engine-powered fuel pumps, aviation fuel systems, filters, supply and return hoses and connections, hose reels, and digital and mechanical flow meters. Tanks and fittings can also be supplied with custom colors to match a user’s existing fleet of equipment.
