ATLAS Fuel Tankers are specifically designed and fabricated in cylindrical
ATLAS Fuel Tankers are specifically designed and fabricated in cylindrical, elliptical & "D" shape to suit specification of truck chassis manufacturer and customers requirements for self loading/unloading and transporting hydrocarbon fuels such as Aviation Gasoline, Petrol, Diesel and Petroleum/Organic solvent over primary/secondary roads and cross country terrain conditions. The tank superstructure is fabricated of high strength heat treated fine grain steel which gives extra strength and durability.
A wide range of ATLAS fuel tanker covers capacities from 1000 I.G. to 5000 I.G. and capacities from 6000 I.G.to 12000 I.G. are made in form of semi-trailers.
THE TANK :
The tank shell is precisely rolled on CNC Plate Bending Machine from steel plates. The ends of the tank are closed with dished and flanged ends. Internally fitted with transverse anti surge baffles with manholes for access between compartments. The tank is designed with a minimum lateral slope longitudnally and a full length valance is provided on top of the tank to eliminate spillage due to over fill. Drain off pipes are provided at rear of the tank.
MAN HOLES :
Man holes with lockable covers are provided on top of the tank of size 18" dia.with filling hatch of 10", with provision for safety features such as pressure/vaccum vent, over turn protection, emergency venting, weather & tamper proof and self latching.
Positive displacement type - Power take off driven pump is fitted on the tank which is easy to start and use, more efficient , economical operation with low noise and vibration level. Capacities ranges from 25 usg/min to 150 usg/min.depending upon the capacity of tank, viscosity of fluid, density of the fluid and flow rate.
BOTTOM LOADING :
A) Emergency valve comprising of vortex breaker, water deflector and stainless steel wire mesh filter is fitted at the bottom of the tank and is cable operated with fusible link through quick release bottom operator lever housed at control station.
B) Automatic bottom loading fitments includes out-let valve, piping routed from emergency valve to outlet valves, bottom lever operator, quick release cam lock couplings & faucets.
C) Dip Tube Assembly made of strong diecast aluminium alloy with quick release dust cap is provided on top of the tank in accordance with callibration in USG/liters.
Following accessories are std. on ATLAS Fuel Tankers.
Steel reinforced discharged & filling fuel hose with quick release cam lock (al) couplings 3 mtrs length 4 nos. Hose box on either side of the tank for storage of hoses. Steel mud guards with rubber mud flaps. A non slip walkway is provided on top of the tank to provide access to the man-holes. Side lamps along the left and right side of the tank. Fire extinguisher with mounting brackets.
SURFACE TREATMENT :
Blasted to S.A.2.5 Swedish Standards.
Internal Painting : Diesel wash for standard tanks. Special Epoxy linning suitable for AVGAS & JET FUEL.
External Painting : Primed and finish coated in single color enamel/epoxy pain system to clients specifications.
SURFACE TREATMENT :
METER - rotary vane type positive displacement large numerical reset counter and totalizer reading in USG/liters per min. Hose reels - spring rewind/hydraulic rewind or explosion proof electric rewind hose reel with collapsible steel reinforced fuel hose & overwing swivel type discharge nozzle Filter Monitor, Air Eliminator, Differential Pressure Gauge, Thermal Pressure Relief Valve. Scully overfill protection system. Safety brake interlock system High intensity, 360 degree rotating beacons.
