Double Walled Steel Fiberglass Jacketed Fuel Storage System
Aviation Fuel Tanks
Plasteel® Elutron® Double Walled Steel/Fiberglass Fuel Storage System
Steel fuel containment systems have a proven history of providing reliable and safe storage of fuel products. With the addition of a fiberglass reinforced “FRP” outer, secondary containment layer the Elutron® fuel storage system creates a high performance, seamless and durable underground storage solution. The 360º interstice between the steel and FRP secondary containment is created by incorporating an aluminum foil layer which in turn provides a system for monitoring inner tank integrity. The steel inner tank provides the highest level of structural stability while the outer FRP layer provides complete protection from underground environmental conditions. The UL Listed Elutron® Double Walled Fiberglass Jacketed tank system meets the EPA 40 CFR subpart B, 280.20 standards for new underground storage tanks.
TrueNorth Steel’s Elutron® underground fuel storage tanks are compatible with gasoline, jet fuel, methanol and ethanol in varying concentrations, E 10, E-15, E-80, E-100 and kerosene commonly used in a variety of applications such as fuel stations, emergency power generators, and farm and residential operations and can incorporate multiple compartments. Installation of Elutron® diesel underground storage tanks is uncomplicated and due to the inherent, long term strength of steel are less dependent upon backfill for support when compared to non-metallic underground tank systems. Non-metallic underground tank systems require high-quality gravel backfill and a greater distance between adjacent tanks.
Each Elutron® system is supplied with a factory-established interstitial vacuum. Prior to delivery, our team cleans and levels all the fittings and marks the center lines on each tank. These details save installers several hours of work normally spent on the pre-installation testing and cleaning of non metallic tanks.
Quality is built-in to every tank system TrueNorth Steel fabricates and our production facility is certified and regularly audited by the American Petroleum Institute and Underwriters Laboratories.
TrueNorth Steel is a reliable partner with over 70 years of experience fabricating superior steel products including a wide array of storage tanks such as above ground fuel storage tanks, Fireguard® fire rated fuel storage systems, modular agricultural fuel storage tanks and petroleum storage tanks for oilfield applications.
