Fire Rated Fuel and Chemical Storage Tanks
The Liquip Fireguard® Tank design incorporates lightweight thermal insulation encased between two walls of steel. The double wall steel design provides secondary containment. The lightweight interstitial insulation material is 75% lighter than concrete reducing the overall tank weight significantly when compared to competing concrete encased products.
This tank is UL 2085 Labelled as a "fire-protected" and "fire-resistant" secondary containment aboveground tank with a 2-hour fire-rating.
FIREGUARD Tank Features:
- Insulates product in tank from ambient temperature variations, reducing emissions to the environment.
- Primary and secondary tank can be tightness tested on site with standard testing procedures.
- Steel outer wall provides low cost maintenance and protection from weathering.
- Primary storage tank and secondary containment compatible with a wide range of fuels and chemicals, including biodiesel and ethanol.
