Waste Oil Storage Tanks

Waste Oil Storage Tanks

Make your waste oil heater or boiler even more effective

Everything about our used oil storage tanks is designed specifically for used oil, which means they're engineered to support waste oil heating. For example, our tanks are the only ones with fuel pick up six inches from the base. Because oil rises to the top, this guarantees that your fuel line will never pick up the wrong liquid (such as water or antifreeze). Also, the tanks' low drains make it easy to eliminate naturally separated liquids. Our used oil storage tanks also include a low-fuel cut off the keeps the furnace from calling for fuel when the tank is empty. The result? Your furnace doesn't lose prime and you don't have to deal with the associated nuisances.

4 Levels of Oil Disposal

The best way to appreciate the value of reusing waste oil as a heating fuel is to understand what the alternatives are. As you already know, every gallon of used oil not burned onsite requires alternative disposal. What you may not know is that each alternative comes with its own potential business and environmental costs. (Keep in mind, the business that generates the oil is liable for any problems that happen during transportation of that oil.)

On-Site Recycling
Used oil is stored onsite and burned as heating fuel. It's the most environmentally friendly alternative with the lowest environmental and business risks.

Unregulated Disposal
This happens when oil is dumped down a storm drain, into a stream or onto the ground. Obviously, this is by far the worst option and no one thinks this is a good idea.

Industrial Plant Fuel
In this case, used oil is removed from the site where it was generated by a hauler. It's transported to a collection facility (use of energy, generation of emissions), processed (use of energy, generation of emissions) and then hauled (use of energy, generation of emissions) to an industrial burner where it's reused as fuel. This option accounts for where 70% of used oil ends up.

Re-refining
With this option, used oil is removed from the generator site by a hauler (use of energy, generation of emissions), transported to a refinery, processed (use of energy, generation of emissions) by a refiner and resold as base stock (use of energy, generation of emissions).Up to 40% of the used oil that is not re-refinable still must be disposed of.
