Ensuring uninterrupted power and safe dispensing systems begins with preventative maintenance. Tank owners should be performing regular maintenance and inspection on their tanks as required by warranty and by many state/local codes. Water is one of the most harmful elements to the integrity of your fuel storage system. Water can cause rust and corrosion on fittings and on the exterior of steel jacketed tanks and when introduced can significantly damage your fuel system leading to corrosion, clogged fuel filters and fuel injectors and possibly even tank failure.
Fuel Storage Maintenance Tips:
- Monitor Tank For the Presence of Water!
- Use A Biocide Additive To Maintain Fuel Quality (Purchase Biocide Online Here!)
- Obtain fuel from a reputable supplier to help ensure clean fuel (no water)
- Visual Inspection to Check for Leaks and/or Tank Failure
- Steel tanks should be repainted every year (as recommended by tank manufacturer)
- Fittings and Pipe Nipples Should Be Repainted and/or Powder Coated to Prevent Rust (Except Stainless Steel)
- Implement a Regular Maintenance Plan
SateSiteTM Preventative Maintenance Program
If you have not had your fuel storage system inspected lately, you may be in for an unpleasant surprise. The increasing complexity of regulation and safety issues related to fuel storage has made it difficult for many organizations to keep up with the requirements. As a result, many sites are being fined because they do not comply with current regulations. Costly tank failures can also be caused by improper maintenance and corrosion from microogranisms found in fuel. Core's SafeSite™ Annual Inspection and Maintenance Program can give you peace of mind. We offer this unique program for our customers in the New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania area's.
The scope of the SafeSite Program:
- Inspection of your fuel storage tank and equipment to insure that your system is in good working/safe order
- Testing the system for the presence of microorganisms
- Evaluation of the system compliance w/ regulations being actively enforced in your state
- The outcome of this inspection will be a written summary including:
- Immediate test results on the presence of microorganisms and a plan of action
