Transformer Oil Containment Bund Tanks
The product range includes both painted and galvanised steel metallic tanks for both new installations and retro-fit situations. For new installations the tanks are in one piece, completely factory built and tested, designed for the specific transformer oil volume, to contain at least 110 percent of the oil. Retro fit tanks are designed and supplied in several parts: a base plate which must be slid under the transformer (which needs to be lifted a few cms) and fitted with stud bolts; the sides are then bolted on using pre-formed silicon seals to form a complete durable tank. Bund tanks can be supplied for distribution transformers of all sizes.
Flexible plastic tanks are offered for temporary transformer storage, which may be weeks during removal work or a few years. These are again factory tested and supplied on pallets complete with ground sheets and metal support frame. Installation is quick and simple and usually completed in half a day. They can be supplied for up to 100 000 litres of oil or more, over 20 metres x 10 metres in size with wall heights of up to a metre.
All these tanks can be fitted with siphons to prevent overflowing, drain valves, and the unique Filtrelec® transformer bund rainwater drainage system. The Filtrelec® system will keep the bund free of rainwater and ensure that water discharged contains less than 1 ppm of oil, far better than a class 1 interceptor or a pumped system and far lower maintenance.
