A fuel tank that has got the capability of handling, storing and even processing hazardous material in it and is made up of a bund wall around it is referred to as a bunded fuel tank. The wall is always made of bund and it has got a protective nature that helps keep the contents of the tank very safe. Most of the time bunded fuel tanks are usually used in storing domestic heating oil, acids and also crude oil. Such fuel contents are very corrosive and can destroy single skin tanks or even plastic tanks if they were to be used. The following are some of the benefits of using bunded fuel tanks over other tanks in the storage of fuels.
Bunded fuel tanks help to keep the fuel contents within it very safe and hence preventing them from causing environmental pollution, this makes then very environmentally friendly. Environmental protection has become one of the most urgent issues in the world and there has been need to look into it. Bunded fuel tanks help to protect the environment from pollution by protecting the hazardous fuel content within it very safe. This ability is made possible by the band wall which is one of the features of a bunded fuel tank, which has made it more strong, durable and secure as compared to plastic and single skin fuel tanks.
Durability is yet another feature of a bunded fuel tank that makes to be very safe and secure in terms of fuel storage. This means that for them to wear out, it will have to take a longer time for that to happen. This makes the fuel contents to be very safe and secure. This also helps to prevent accident that can occur because the tanks are not strong enough to hold the content inside for quite some time. If you buy a bunded fuel tank you will only replace it after a very long time, this is opposed to other tanks that requires you to replace them more frequently.
Bunded tanks always come in big sizes; this means that their storage capacity is very high. Bunded fuel tanks can hold up to one hundred and twenty thousand liters of fuel, this is because the bund wall makes it stronger hence giving it that ability. Fuel tanks made from other materials can only stand small amounts of fuel capacity in them because they can get destroyed by pressure of holding more than the maximum limit. This has made them the most reliable tanks to be used in industries and the most preferred according to the environmental regulations and health standards.
