Best Bulk Oil Storage Dispensing System

Bulk Oil Storage System

Selecting the right bulk oil storage and dispensing system is critical for efficiency, safety and environmental requirements. This article will highlight a few of the important factors to consider when purchasing a bulk oil storage system as well as a few of the best oil storage product options. 

Key Oil Storage Factors to Consider

Capacity - Make sure any oil storage system you are considering offers adequate capacity for the amount of oil you need to store.

Space - Understand exactly how much space you have for storage and consider options for maximizing your space. Stackable oil storage containers typically offer more efficient space utilization than traditional oil barrels. 

Types of Oil - Make sure you check compatibility of the type of oil you will be storing to make sure any bulk storage solution provides the right match.

Usage Requirements - Carefully evaluate how quickly you need to dispense your bulk oil. Standard valves may dispense at much slower rates than pump options.

Bulk Oil Storage Materials 

Plastic Tanks - These options are typically made from polyethylene.  Plastic tanks are lightweight, more portable and offer better corrosion resistance than steel tanks.

Steel Tanks - Can be ideal for large quantities of oil storage and provide secure storage.

Setup Options 

Single Tank Setup - Single tanks or barrels are typically setup side by side in a storage area. The main limitation is a single tank setup does not offer the ability to be easily stacked on top of each other.

Stackable Tank Setup - Stackable tank systems allow you stack individual units on top of each other. You can stack single tanks on top of each other all the way to the top of your ceiling. This offers you the ability to maximize your available space and minimize the overall footprint of your bulk oil storage.

Secondary Containment - Environmental regulations frequently require bulk oil storage tanks to have secondary containment to prevent oil spills from reaching the ground and potentially contaminating the area.  Many of the bulk oil storage systems offer an easy cost effective option for providing secondary containment directly below the stackable tanks.
