Southern Tank is a leading manufacturer of fuel storage tanks and has been since 1937. We fabricate carbon and stainless steel fuel storage tanks that are compatible with all types of fuels including biodiesel and ethanol. Optional interior linings ensure compatibility with specialty fuels and petrochemical feedstocks.
Some of the products stored in the fuel storage tanks manufactured by Southern include all grades of gasoline, diesel, kerosene, avgas, commercial and military jet fuel, racing fuel, asphalt, waxes, ink, chemicals, and a wide array of petroleum based oils and lubricants. With the ethanol (E85) and biodiesel markets expanding, alternative fuels are fast becoming a major player in the demand for new fuel storage tanks.
Southern’s fuel storage tanks come in a wide range of capacities and can be aboveground or underground, horizontal or vertical, cylindrical or rectangular, single-wall or double-wall, all with many options available. Our fuel storage tanks can be built to the following aboveground specifications: F921 double-wall, UL 2085 Fireguard®, fire resistant Flameshield®, single-wall UL 142, or small non-labeled farm tanks. Underground fuel storage tanks built to sti-p3® or ACT-100-U provisions can be fabricated as single-wall or double-wall. Compartmentalization of your aboveground or underground fuel storage tank by a single or double bulkhead divider allows for storage of multiple products in one tank. Other support options and accessories are available as well (see Tank Accessories.) Custom exterior painting and product specific interior linings can be provided.
Safe fuel storage is important for environmental protection, to help reduce and control business insurance premiums, to protect your investment in the product stored, and to ensure that the stored product is there when you need it for whatever process it is used in. With today’s rising fuel prices and environmental regulations, you want to know that your fuel storage tank is safe and sufficient with regard to EPA and other ruling jurisdictions.
