Recent trends in major oil company tenders have seen a shift in emphasis on protecting the environment and hence a more detailed analysis of equipment integrity is required. In some cases, even the integrity of a service station as a whole.
Tokheim leverages its experience in both equipment manufacturing and technical services on the forecourt, to integrate what we call “ENVIRONMENTAL SERVICES”.
As part of the Total Cost of Ownership approach, Tokheim can help customers on its TCOstrategy to have peace of mind that all equipment integrity exists, detecting and/or preventing any leaks visible or invisible at the forecourt.
The ENVIRONMENTAL SERVICES package consists of:
Ø 3D Lazer Tank Calibration
Ø Ultrasonic Line & Tank Testing
Ø Product Filtration
Ø Tank Lining
Ø Manhole Cleaning
By exercising the above, one would not only comply with local fiscal and environmental legislations but also enjoy the benefits of not having to face the cost of civil works and remediation, should the environment accidently be contaminated.
Cleaning The Tank
Measuring The Tank
A 3-D laser calibration tool is used to create an exact 3-D model of the tank. The 3-D drawing of the tank is used to create a custom-made tank liner.
Installation Of Key Components
Firstly, a protective mattress is lowered into the tank and inflated. It acts as a cushion for the liner to be placed on top of. The operators then feed the liner into the tank.
Inflating The Liner
The Mattress is removed and the protective liner is then inflated. It acts as a “second skin”. The final shape and dimension is exactly that of the tank.
Commissioning The Tank
Thorough testing is carried out via a vacuum leak detection solution. After a final inspection via camera system the pipework and tank cover are reconnected. The tank is now ready for use once more.
Tokheim, in partnership with Fenotec, introduce a pioneering tank solution. Using a patented mounting system the durable leak protection lining solution is installed in just a few days to provide years of protection to underground tank units. It is suited to situations where a tank leak has occurred, if an alternative new fuel is to be loaded, or if tank coating is not an option due to high internal corrosion. The solution reduces costs, increases safety and provides long-term environmental protection for your forecourt.
Key Benefits To Your Business
Tokheim’s tank lining solution reduces labour and material cost by up to 75% versus tank replacement and 35% versus an epoxy liner system.
Reduced Site Downtime
The tank lining solution takes just a few days to complete. The method ensures that downtime is reduced and your site can be operational quickly once again.
The liner gives old tanks new capabilities, so that they can handles a variety of fuel types and bio-fuels in the future.
The tank liner is made of high quality materials that comply with current regulations for a long lasting life.
Improved Safety On The Forecourt
The process is unmanned with no requirement for personnel to enter the tank, making this a safer solution.
