Are Steel Oil Tanks Better Than Plastic?
There is no ‘best’ material when it comes to oil tanks, steel and plastic each have their own advantages and disadvantages over one another when it comes to storing oil, so in order to gain a better understanding of what’s best for you and your property, we will discuss some of the said pros and cons in more detail:
Pros And Cons Of Steel Oil Tanks
One of the key benefits of steel as a material is its durability and resistance to damage, even from extreme weather. Steel is also UV resistant; these properties allow for steel to be more resilient to accidental damage than plastic. However, steel tanks are far heavier than their plastic alternatives, making them harder to move around and install.
Pros And Cons Of Plastic Oil Tanks
Plastic tanks are easier to manoeuvre and install than steel tanks due to their lighter weight. They are also not prone to rust like steel tanks, though the risk of rust on steel is very low. Since plastic is an insulator, external heat takes longer to infiltrate into the oil inside, providing better protection. The seamless makeup of plastic tanks makes them less prone to leakages.
Plastic tanks are not as easy to recycle as steel unfortunately and are also less secure from a potential theft point of view. As mentioned when discussing steel gutters, plastic is not as resistant to accidental damage and can also be weakened over time if constantly exposed to sunlight.
What Is A Bunded Tank?
A bunded tank is essentially a tank within another tank, creating a double layer between the contents stored in the tank and the outside. This means that the oil or fuel stored inside is highly protected and would need to break through two layers before it could become an issue, which also makes them more environmentally friendly than single skin tanks.
How Far Away Should An Oil Tank Be From A House?
An oil tank should be no closer than 1.8 metres to a building or property that is not fire-resistant.
