A fast and economical solution for the temporary storage of oil
AutoTanks, made by Egersund Markleen, are a cost effective solution to the problem of the temporary storage of oil following a spill clean-up operation.
These lightweight tanks are made of PVC-coated polyester and come in sizes of 2, 6 and 10 m3 storage capacity. They are easy to carry by hand and do not require any assembly, as they have no rigid structure.
A floating ring on the top of the tank rises as the tank is filled with liquid, giving the tank its shape. And the tank can be emptied using a ball valve with a Camlock coupling located near the bottom of the tank.
The only requirement for this versatile and easy to use product is that it is installed on a flat surface, such as a dockside.
