The HotShot is the most innovative
heated product storage tank system in
the industry. The HotShot is designed
specifically for the safe storage of
heavy residual fuel oils (RFO), such as
No. 6 fuel oil. Since No. 6 fuel oil is so
thick and viscous, users heat the oil
to over 150 degrees Fahrenheit before
burning it. Due to the complexity of
storing the heated fuel, RFO users
must be on constant guard against the
environmental hazards brought about
by faulty storage tanks.
The HotShot design and construction is
multi-layered for optimum performance
and safety. We begin with a steel
storage tank designed and constructed
in accordance with UL-58 standards
and certifications, as well as to
customer specified design criteria. The
tank surfaces are protected against
corrosion with a firmly bonded, damage
resistant coating. An industrial high-
temperature, two-part catalyzed interior
coating is applied over a grit blast for
maximum interior surface protection.
Additionally, a high temperature
resistive exterior coating, coupled with
a pre-engineered cathodic protection
system, creates a dependable dielectric
barrier between the tank and the
underground environment.
