Hydrex® Fuel Storage and dispensing systems
Hydrex has a variety of fuel storage and distribution solutions that are predominantly used on mines, industries and municipalities that are located in remote areas. We cater for the off-loading, filtration, storage and pumping of the fuel to the desired usage location. Temporary and smaller systems typically use fuel bladders for storage, while the more permanent sites will generally use a fabricated steel tank for the storage with a fixed loading and off-loading arrangement. Metering, anti-theft and user / machine accountability are integral part of our design process.
Hydrex® Container sized distribution and storage tanks.
Hydrex manufactures container sized high volume diesel fuel tanks. These are transportable in open top containers or flatbed trucks allowing for the efficient transport of diesel tanks to any site. Tank base supports are shipped inside the tank and are placed into the bund when installing. This design allows for the most economical shipment of a 55-65KL storage tank where transportation to site is a large cost factor of the total project value.
