fireguard® UL-2085 tanks

thermally protected steel storage tanks

Fireguard® tanks are thermally protected, double-wall steel storage tanks and are the best alternative for safe storage of motor fuels and other flammable and combustible liquids aboveground. They are used where a fire-protected tank is needed because of setback limitations or regulatory requirements. Each tank is constructed with a minimum 3” interstice around the inner tank. The interstice is completely filled with a lightweight, monolithic material. This high efficiency insulation protects the inner tank in the unlikely event of a fire or extreme heat. It is porous to allow fluid migration through the interstice to the monitoring point.

Unlike concrete encased tanks, Fireguard® tanks’ steel outer wall protects the insulation, eliminating the problem of cracking and spalling concrete. Because of its unique construction, each tank is pressure-testable in the factory and at the jobsite. With Fireguard®, there is no question of compliance with fire codes; the tank is shipped with factory-installed emergency vents on both the primary and the secondary containment tanks for protection if exposed to fire or excessive pressure. All Fireguard® tanks carry a 30-year limited warranty

cylindrical fireguard

Cylindrical construction provides superior “ribbed” strength with flat-flanged heads and continuous exterior lap welds on all joints. Seal-welded bulkheads can be added to create compartments for multiple fluid storage options. Available in 300-60,000 gallon capacities, they are supplied with primary and secondary emergency vents. Fittings of various sizes and styles enable connections to external piping systems. View diagram

fire-hopper

Ideal for the storing flammable and combustible liquids affected by setback limitations, the UL-2085 listed Fire-Hopper’s unique domed top prevents accumulation of rain, snow, and other debris. Small footprint and optional pump / equipment packages make the Fire-Hopper tanks economical and easy to install.
