Common types of heating oil tank we install
Tankology can install a myriad of heating oil tanks for both domestic and commercial applications. Typically, there are two types of tank for storing heating oil. Both of these tanks can be installed above-ground or buried below-ground. OFTEC guidelines mean only integrally bunded tanks can be installed in Wales.
Integrally bunded heating oil tanks
Bunded tanks have an additional outer tank layer. This is called a bund and is a safety measure for better containment. Additionally, the bund will also provide protection from exposure to the elements.
Single skinned heating oil tanks
These can be plastic (usually green) or metal. Typical single skinned tanks do not have a protective bund. As a result they are the cheaper option of the two, but are subject to much tighter Government regulations.
