Patterson’s Garage in Dungannon, just off the M1, was looking for a safe and effective solution for bulk AdBlue storage for their forecourt.
The company wanted to stock bulk rather than packaged AdBlue because bulk storage was more cost efficient. They had no existing underground tanks for AdBlue, and no plans to install them because of the cost and disruption of groundworks.
The garage proprietors approached Kingspan’s Energy Management Solutions team for advice on installing an overground terminal tank that could be incorporated into their existing stand-alone dispensing and fuel management system. This area gives drivers direct and easy access to their AdBlue supplies.
The tank needed to be fully compliant with industry regulations and hold up to 5,000 litres of AdBlue safely and securely.
Kingspan’s engineers recommended the owners of the petrol station install a BlueMaster Standard Terminal AdBlue 5000L tank.
The Kingspan BlueMaster Terminal Tank range conforms to the highest manufacturing and material compliance standards for AdBlue storage. Each tank is bunded (double-skinned) for environmental protection and to safeguard against fluid contamination.
The Standard tank also includes a pre-installed Tank Management System (TMS) for improved logistical savings and better stock management. The TMS features an easy-to-read LCD display and offers content measurement, a leak detection alarm and overfill prevention.
BlueMaster Terminal Tanks feature a submersible pump and stainless-steel fill-line which can be connected to an external AdBlue dispenser. In this instance, the tank has been placed around 50m from the dispensing system, with a standard pipe connection to the dispensing unit. A 2” stainless-steel dry coupling connection creates a closed fluid path and ensures no impurities can contaminate the AdBlue while filling the tank.
Niall McArdle, Kingspan’s Area Sales Manager, says: “Feedback from the customer since the tank’s installation has been very positive, and we continue to conduct periodic checks to ensure the tank maintains its optimal performance.”
BlueMaster Terminal AdBlue tanks are backed by Kingspan’s renowned technical expertise and customer support, and all come with a 10-year tank guarantee.
