Now let's all examine what are the technical features of the fuel tanker.


What are the General features of Fuel Tanker?


The fuel tanker is used both underground and above ground for the purpose of storing products such as fuel and then oil, which is a fuel derivative. They're completely open to the atmosphere. All tankers produced are manufactured in full according to TS EN 12285 standards.

Due to the great danger of the fuel to be transported or stored; production should be paid 2 times more attention than other tankers. Professional companies should not be directed towards external productions. Because the slightest error may result in leakage after a certain period of use. And when the infiltration occurs; explosions, fires.b, etc. disasters can be encountered.


What are the Technical Features of Fuel Tanker?


Fuel tanker specifications; is the most refire fighting trucked topic among its general features. To see the standards by which a tanker is produced and what sizes of product is obtained as a result of production, you can take a look at the white table below:

  • Body diameter varies from 1000mm to 3000mm.
  • Its length can be from 1500mm to 16000mm. This length varies according to usage area and customer demand.
  • 304 stainless steel is used with the S235JR, which is also specified in TS EN 12285 standards for body and dome crown.
  • The diameter of the fuel tank's manhole varies from 600mm, 700m and 800mm.
  • Fuel tank feet are generally stationary and manufactured in saddle type.
  • The preferred type of paint for fuel tank paint is epoxy paint. For its coating, tar coating is preferred to prevent robustness and leakage.
  • For heater, steel pipe sprinkler and electric resistors are preferred.

The technical features of the fuel tanker are listed in this way. In addition, there is also the issue of capacity. Teknik Tanker acts according to customer demand in terms of capacity and can produce tankers with a capacity of up to 100,000 liters. These tankers have a minimum capacity of 1000 liters.

It can be implied as 1000 liters, 2000 liters, 3000 liters, 5000 liters, 7000 liters, 10000 liters, 13000 liters, 30,000 liters, 35,000 liters, 40,000 liters, 80,000 liters and 100,000 liters. The most preferred fuel tanker is the tanker with a capacity of 13000 liters.


How Many Tons Does a Fuel Tanker Take?


Another question asked within the technical features of the fuel tanker is how many tons the tanker will receive. For this, it is impossible to give clear and precise information that it will take "X tons". Because as we mentioned immediately in the next paragraph, capacity is determined according to the need and customer demand. The calculation is not done on a ton basis, but on a liter basis. Starting from 1000 liters, the capacity in question can increase up to 100,000 liters.


How to Manufacture Fuel Tank?


Fuel tank manufacturing is a very sensitive issue, as we mentioned at the beginning of the article. The manufacturing stages go through 9 steps. At least 5 times in each step of these 9 steps, general checks and tests are carried out to produce a completely flawless product.

After receiving the order related to the fuel tank, the manufacturing process begins. The first step of the process is to cut stainless sheet and S235JR 4mm sheet and combine with MIG/MAG resources.

The mirrors in both the front and rear parts of the fuel tank are placed in the 30mm body by applying skirt curling. This process is the most demanding process of tank production and must be welded continuously both internally and externally. In order to prevent the turbulence in the tank on the move, enough breakwaters and compartments should be placed in this process. Their level varies according to tank capacity.

If the stages in question are completed without any problems, they are tested. If the test results do not show a problem; other stages are proceeded. The other stage is to make special aluminum casting on the tank. Aluminum casting, which is made on each eye with a diameter of 50cm, must be supported by air valve mehol covers with neoprene rubber seals and mechanical springs in order to ensure full sealing.

When manufacturing fuel tanks; A number of procedures determined according to TSE Standards are applied. The first of these procedures is; from the pipe, which has a size of 2 1.5" which opens from the bottom of the tank to the atmosphere, that is, the natural environment, with a loss of fuel when the tank is fully loaded; air, rainwater, drainage and the addition of overflow pipe. Unless this is added, the vehicle will not carry an official qualification.

A protective chamber is made to the upper part of the tank, from one end to the other. This chamber prevents situations such as overflow. At the point where he can't block it; does not pose any risk. After the production of the tank is carried out, a ladder is added to reach it from the back of the tank. This ladder opens – must be closed.

The chassis of the tank, i.e. its skeleton, has to be welded to the tank from every point. For this, points that lack resources are welded. Then rubber sheet placement is made in the intermediate area of the tanker and vehicle squint. After rubber treatment, the connecting ears should be placed and the bonding process with steel stud bolts should be applied.

Fuel tank manufacturing is technically like this. After these processes, the tanker is fully manifested. What to do after this process; superficial processes. The first process is the paint process of the tanker. It is painted the desired color and then the editorials are performed. Digital printing products are available.

Discharge hose and hose locations are built directly in both areas of the tanker. This process should be done after the paint process. This is the last operation. After that, the projects are delivered with the plan approved by the Ministry of Industry together with the tanker.
