Fuel Oil Storage: Choosing The Right Tank

The choice of fuel oil storage tanks that are offered can be quite confusing, but if you answer a few simple questions you will soon be well on your way to finding the right tank for your needs. There is no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to fuel oil tanks. The space you have available […]

Diesel & HVO Dispensing Tanks: Why Choose Steel?

A vehicle fuel dispensing tank is a practical solution for many sectors, including agricultural and horticultural, construction and civil engineering, industrial, transportation and logistics. It enables bulk purchase of fuels […]

How Secure Is Your Fuel Storage?

Fuel theft is on the increase, according to the Oil Firing Technical Association (OFTEC) and the UK and Ireland Fuel Distributors Association (UKIFDA). Prime targets for thieves include remote locations such as farms and construction sites, particularly at night and weekends when they are less likely to be seen or disturbed, but fuel theft can […]

Rainwater Harvesting: Save Now For A Summer Scorcher

While the summer of 2023 came narrowly close to stealing the crown from 2022 to become the hottest UK summer on record, the Met Office now predicts that the summer of 2024 could be another record-breaker. Given that we have witnessed exceptionally hot summers for several consecutive years, acting now to install a rainwater harvesting […]

Best Tanks For Chemical Bulk Storage

Agriculture, horticulture and many manufacturing and processing industries need to safely mix, store and dispense chemicals in bulk. These substances vary widely, from liquids to granules and from low-hazard, non-toxic chemicals such as molasses to hazardous chemicals such as acids, alkalis and flammable liquids. Naturally, the types of tanks used for bulk chemical storage are […]

Tanks-UK Adds Commercial Sewage Treatment Plants To Range!

Sewage treatment plants are fast becoming the sewage management system of choice for situations where a connection to a main sewer is either unavailable or not viable. This is because a sewage treatment plant removes liquid effluent from the sewage and cleans it to a degree that makes it safe to release into watercourses. It […]

Focusing on Water Treatment: Sewage Treatment Plants

The wastewater from toilets, bathrooms, kitchen and laundry appliances must be treated before it is safe to release into the environment. While cesspits and septic tanks have for centuries been the only solution, sewage treatment plants are now the preferred option as they work more efficiently and are better for the environment. In this blog […]

Water Systems – Plant Watering & Irrigation

Changes to our climate are forcing us to re-examine how we use one of our most precious natural resources – water. While long, dry summers are becoming more frequent, higher rainfall during other seasons gives us the opportunity to harness this resource through rainwater harvesting. While “saving up for a rainy day” used to be […]

Focusing on Wastewater: Pump Stations

In this post, we take a look at wastewater pump stations: what they are, why they are needed and where they are typically used. What is a wastewater pump station and what does it do? A pump station in its simplest form is the combination of a holding tank and a pump system, used to […]

Water Recycling – Grey Water Tanks

Water Re-use – systems for Greywater What is greywater, as opposed to rainwater harvesting? Basically it is water that has been used once, hence the term recycling.  In short ‘greywater’ (which can also be spelt ‘grey water’) describes water that has been used in showers, baths and washing machines. Use of it is more restricted […]

Rainwater Harvesting – Grants available now

In rural areas which come under the scope of the Countryside Stewardship Scheme from central Government, there are a number of grants available every year and rainwater harvesting comes into this for several reasons. Environmentally it makes a lot of sense. Rainwater harvesting systems collect clean water which can be used for many agricultural purposes. […]

Above Ground Plastic Tanks – and their uses

This popular range of rotationally moulded vertical tanks are manufactured in several different varieties for differing uses. Potable and Non-Potable water – why have different tanks? Potable water, in short, is drinking water.  Potable water tanks are designed to be used indoors or outdoors, and therefore to prevent deterioration of the water quality, they need […]

But this isn’t all – security is often a very important factor as fuel thefts are by no means uncommon.  Then there’s the environmental risk should a tank be […]

See it at LAMMA24 – Stand 20 560

Rainwater Harvesting Systems Nothing new in the concept. For hundreds of years people have collected rainwater off roofs and stored it in some form of container to re-use. Not only is this environmentally a good idea, but it also saves money on mains water supply costs. If rainwater can be harvested and stored during wet […]

Autumn is here – time to check your oil tanks

Whether you use kerosene, diesel or HVO for heating commercial warehouse space heaters, grain dryers, timber dryers, or domestic boilers, you will almost certainly have an oil tank on site. These humble tanks, often taken for granted, do need checking and maintenance from time to time especially in the commercial, industrial or agricultural sectors. What’s […]

Fuel storage and dispensing – latest news

Government defers ban on oil heating On 20th September the UK Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak, gave a speech which made some sweeping changes to the timeline of carbon reduction targets. One of the most significant was the fact that oil boilers will still be available up to 2035, for off-grid homes. And even then, you […]

Rainwater Harvesting – case study

It’s pretty obvious that harvesting the rainwater that falls on the roofs of building is a very good way to conserve water. Many of us do just that, at home or on allotments, with rainwater butts attached to the downpipe of a shed roof, for instance. However, this can be done on a much larger […]

HVO storage and dispensing

In the light of increased pressure on businesses to reduce their carbon footprint and improve their environmental standards, it is worth looking at HVO as an alternative to standard diesel. Unfortunately in the UK it isn’t yet readily available at fuel stations, but it is available generally for bulk delivery, so our fuel storage and […]

Sectional Steel Tanks explained

How does it work? As the name implies, these tanks are constructed on site from preformed steel sections. They are basically the same construction as used for agricultural grain, feed or fertiliser silos.  Constructed from high quality structural grade steel, they have a heavy duty galvanised coating on both sides to protect against rust for […]

Rainwater harvesting – sustainability

The ‘hows’ and ‘whys’ of rainwater harvesting. Harvesting rainwater off the roofs of your buildings is a very easy way to save water, as explained below. As to ‘why’ – well, there are so many reasons why rainwater harvesting is a good idea that we might very well ask, “why not?”. How it works – […]

Case Study – Diesel Storage for Standby Generator

  The Challenge A well-known UK energy provider partnering with a large manufacturing plant on a green energy project needed a large emergency power resource to ensure production continuity during routine maintenance and power outages on the green system. The two generators selected for this task would together consume approximately 1,000 litres of diesel per […]

When an ‘off the shelf’ Plastic Tank isn’t quite the solution

There are many shapes and sizes of standard plastic tanks, particularly water tanks. But sometimes they might not be quite what you need. Bespoke tanks can be fabricated in special sizes or configurations, using plastic welding processes. However, there is such a large range of standard plastic tanks that often you may only need adaptations […]

Fuel Cube Tanks

Fuel Cube Tanks How do you define a cube tank?  In fact, very few of them are exactly cube shaped, but it does give you an idea of what they will look like. Tanks-UK’s steel fuel cubes are basically bunded (double-skinned) fully portable tanks with integral dispensing equipment. Sometimes known as skid-mounted units, although technically […]

Fuel Storage Tanks

Fuel storage covers kerosene (otherwise known as heating oil), red diesel, ‘white’ (standard) diesel and HVO, in the main. Some tanks are suitable for petrol storage but because of the flammability of petrol, this is covered by specific regulations. Agricultural and Industrial use Fuel oil is used in many areas to power heaters as well as vehicles. And, of course if you […]

Take advantage of Rainwater harvesting

Rainwater Harvesting systems Take advantage of a free resource when it falls from the sky – this is rainwater harvesting. Simply put, the water is collected from a roof or roofs and stored in a tank ready for use. There are no legal implications or environmental restrictions on this if it is simply rainwater harvesting […]

Save time on refuelling during harvest

Using a diesel bowser to transport fuel around the farm can save time when it comes to the busiest times of the year.  Take the fuel out to the vehicles so you don’t have to bring them back to the yard to refuel. And did you know that Tanks-UK sell used (ex-hire / ex-fleet) bowsers […]

Why would you need a water bowser?

Tungsten Tanks Water Bowsers Tanks-UK supply water bowsers from stock, manufactured and adapted by our sister company Tungsten Tanks. They are available as site tow for off-road use; or road tow for fully highway compliant use.  In the hotter, drier weather of the summer season they really come into their own for transportation and distribution […]

Agricultural effluent

Effluent is basically defined as liquid waste. Because of the varied nature of liquid waste there are a number of pollutant hazards to be considered. Untreated effluent must never be allowed to enter watercourses, and the Environment Agency in the UK constantly monitor for pollution. DEFRA is also involved in pollution prevention. So what can […]

Waste Oil – what you need to know

Recycling of waste oil Whether it is cooking oil, hydraulic oil or engine lubricating oil, yes, it can be recycled.  The recycling of waste oil is not a new technology – it has been around for some years.  But it has grown in significance more recently as we search for more sustainable solutions. Environmental considerations […]

Fertiliser Tanks and Accessories

Whether you use a ready mixed liquid fertiliser, or soluble powder type, Tanks-UK have solutions for storage, transport and spraying. What type of fertiliser tanks are available? Vertical storage tanks Buying fertiliser in bulk for storage on a farm, estate or nursery, could save you money. For liquid fertiliser storage the Enduramaxx vertical tanks in […]

Focusing on water saving – Rainwater harvesting

One of the best known, and in fact the oldest type of water saving, is rainwater harvesting. For hundreds of years people have collected rainwater off roofs and stored it in some form of container to re-use. Not only is this environmentally a good idea, but it also saves money on mains water supply costs. […]

Focusing on Water Recycling – Greywater

First, what exactly is greywater? Well, it isn’t the same as rainwater because it has already been used once, hence the term recycling.  In short ‘greywater’ (which can also be spelt ‘grey water’) describes water that has been used in showers, baths and washing machines – it is never potable (drinkable) but it can be […]

Focusing on Water Bowsers – see them at the Doe Show in February

Come and visit our stand to see the bowsers and talk to us about your requirements. What types of water bowsers are available? The […]

Focusing on Steel Water Tanks

Sectional steel water tanks This (sectional) type of tank is the normal solution where steel tanks are required for durability and versatility. Whilst plastic tanks are more suited to potable water, especially in the smaller sizes, steel tanks can be used under certain circumstances. The steel tanks are circular and made from galvanised steel to […]

Focusing on Underground Water Tanks

Potable or Non-Potable water – when you might need an underground tank Underground potable water tanks Where a domestic, or indeed commercial, property has a private borehole, a storage tank may be required for the water. If this has been tested and approved as potable water then it should only need a suitable tank with […]

Focusing on Plastic Water Tanks

Potable and Non-Potable water – why have different tanks? Firstly, what do the terms mean?   Potable water, in short, is drinking water.  Non-potable water generally would be rainwater or other untreated water – used for cleaning, irrigation or possibly livestock drinking water, but not safe for human consumption or personal hygiene. Potable water tanks are […]

For instance, higher speed nozzles available, which are useful for refuelling large vehicle fuel tanks on farms or transport depots. The nozzles can be […]

Effluent Treatment systems

When you think of effluent treatment you probably think of sewage treatment plants.  But this is not the only type of effluent which requires treatment before it is allowed to be discharged. Industrial process liquid waste is also effluent requiring treatment. As discussed in an earlier blog post, the word ‘effluent’ means waste outflow, generally […]

Rainwater Harvesting – invest ready for next summer

Want to keep your garden green in a hot dry summer – even if there’s a hosepipe ban? Want to reduce your water bills? Need a ready supply of water on the farm or nursery for irrigation or livestock? The answer is to take advantage of a free resource when it falls from the sky […]

Storing AdBlue® in bulk

Fleet users of diesel powered vehicles will almost certainly need to store AdBlue® in bulk as well as diesel. Mostly this would be a dispensing tank (see our earlier blog post here). However, there are reasons why you might want a plain storage tank. One illustration of this is where the customer put in a […]

Effluent Bulk Storage Tanks

The definition of effluent is basically ‘an outflowing of waste liquid’. But rarely can liquid waste from farms and industry literally outflow directly into a watercourse, the ground, or even a soakaway drain. If not treated at source, there will be an environmental requirement for storage tanks for safe containment prior to collection by a […]

Chemical Bulk Storage Tanks

In industry, agriculture or horticulture there is often a need for safe bulk storage of chemicals and often this requires a means of dispensing as well. Of course, ‘chemicals’ is a very broad term, and could include many low hazard, non-toxic substances such as molasses used in animal feed; as well as the more hazardous […]

Bulk storage of fuel

Whatever type of fuel you need to store, the tank must meet all relevant regulations for oil storage. In this context ‘oil’ would include: Kerosene (also called paraffin or heating oil) Diesel HVO (Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil) Petrol AvGas (Aviation fuel) Bulk storage includes non-domestic storage of any of the above, for instance on construction sites, […]

Water tanks for bulk storage

Bulk storage water tanks could be required for a number of purposes and the requirements will often be very specific to the user. Considering the different uses for bulk water storage, and what is most appropriate in the circumstances, is where Tanks-UK can help. Firstly, we need to ascertain what type of water needs to […]

Portable Dispensing Tanks

Bowsers, ADR Tanks & Portable Fuel Tanks There are a lot of situations where refuelling of vehicles and equipment can’t be done from a static tank. Wherever petrol or diesel powered equipment has to be away from the main base, for instance on larger farms, construction sites, landscaping and local authority maintenance support – some […]

AdBlue® Dispensing Tanks

What exactly is AdBlue® and why does it need a special type of dispenser? It is basically a solution of urea and demineralised water, which works within a diesel vehicle’s catalytic conversion system to reduce toxic exhaust emissions. The reason why it needs specific tanks is because it is corrosive, so most metal dispensing equipment […]

Large Steel Dispensing Tanks

Large steel fuel dispensing tanks from Tungsten Tanks. There are plenty of situations when only a steel tank will do. Steel tanks are better suited to the larger capacities required where there is a fleet of vehicles to be refuelled. Another advantage of choosing steel tanks is that they can be manufactured in bespoke sizes […]

Large Fuel Dispensing Tanks

Large capacity plastic fuel dispensers – ideal for agricultural or logistics depot requirements. Whether on the farm or in a transport depot, you need to be able to have a safe, secure and easy to use means of refuelling vehicles. Obviously this calls for large capacity storage when you have a number of large vehicles […]

Portable skid-mounted bowsers and cube tanks

Sometimes a bowser doesn’t have wheels… If you need to move fuel and/or AdBlue® around a site for refuelling; or you need a portable source of water, it is often more convenient to have a tank on the back of your vehicle rather than towing a bowser. There’s a wide range of different versions available […]

Dust Suppression

Farm tracks, Construction sites, Equestrian arenas/ménage areas, Quarries, Private estate roads, e.g. gravel roads – in the drier months these locations can all create a huge amount of dust from vehicle or animal movements. This is not only a nuisance but it is also a health and safety hazard. Dust clouds from vehicle movements can […]

Watering Bowsers

Now that the summer season is upon us, watering of plants becomes an essential task. Wherever plants are grown, they will need water in dry weather. Watering bowsers are used wherever it isn’t possible to use mains fed sprinklers or sprayers. Therefore the variety of options for watering bowsers includes small gravity feed manual trolleys […]

Monitoring your fuel and heating oil tanks

Don’t run out of oil! One of the worst things in cold weather is to find your heating oil has run out unexpectedly. Not only does it leave you without heating until you can get a delivery, but the tank sludge may enter the fuel lines and can cause damage to your heating system. This […]

Maintenance of fuel tanks – time for Spring cleaning?

Spring Clean your Fuel Tank Now is a good time to check your fuel tank over and give it a spring clean. Cleaning down the outside will enable you to see if there is any weather damage, such as splits in plastic tanks; paint chipping off or rust appearing on steel tanks. For steel tanks […]

Protect your fuel with security tanks

Diesel is a valuable asset – are you protecting it from theft? The changes in use for red diesel bring challenges for the construction industry in particular. Diesel fuel on site is now much more valuable and prone to theft, so there’s a need for secure, restricted access. This is especially so currently with high […]

Fabricated Plastic tanks and accessories

Sometimes tanks need to be supplied as complete bespoke projects. For instance, you may need industrial chemical tanks to fit in a specific space. Or maybe you need to fit a plastic water tank into the back of a vehicle or a boat, and none of the standard ones are suitable. Bespoke plastic fabricated tanks […]

Focusing on Adapting Plastic Tanks

Got an idea for something that doesn’t look quite like the standard plastic tanks? The concept of welded metal fittings and pipes is well known. But did you know we can adapt plastic tanks using plastic welding? Plastic welding involves joining thermoplastic surfaces using both heat and pressure. Tanks can be supplied with non-standard large […]

Focus on GRP tanks and custom solutions

Glass reinforced plastic tanks Glass reinforced plastic, commonly known as GRP, is just that – an immensely durable material in which glass fibres are permanently bonded into a plastic resin substrate to strengthen the plastic. These tanks are suitable for anything from chemical storage to potable (drinking) water. The added bonus is that they can […]

Twin material tanks and bowsers
