Hopper Tanks
Hoppers are low profile, secondarily
contained, aboveground storage
tanks. They are suitable for the
storage of all types of motor fuels,
biofuels, new and used oils, waste
solvents and antifreeze. The Hopper
consists of an inner tank placed in
a second tub-like steel container,
which provides a minimum of 110%
secondary containment. Hoppers
are manufactured to UL-142
specifications; UL-2085 for Fire-
Hoppers. A limited number of options,
such as pump mounts, pump and tank
accessories and finish paints
are available.
