Tank Servicing

Our standard annual commercial tank services include a visual inspection of the tank and pipework and clearing of the oil feed pipe with compressed air. Subsequently followed by leak pressure testing of the pipe, cleaning or replacing oil filters and a water dip test to see if any water is present in the oil which can be a costly experience. Because water entering the fuel system will cause mechanical damage, repair bills and unexpected downtime of appliances and machinery which is costly and inconvenient. For system critical fuel tanks such as back-up generators for data centres and hospitals, more frequent inspections and water tests are highly recommended.
