MINIBULK®

Bunded tanks provide the safest way to store hazardous and flammable products.

All MINIBULK® Systems are supplied complete with safety bund and associated pipework providing safer chemical storage.

Every MINIBULK system is designed for its specified application. Bunded tanks of thermoplastic construction will usually be black to protect the contents from the effects of UV light. The tanks are externally pigmented to customer specification from the BS4800 range.

MINIBULK PLUS bunded storage tanks are invariably designed to BS4994:1987 using a thermoplastic/GRP dual laminate with a polypropylene or UPVC inner shell as appropriate to the specified duty.

Major chemical suppliers offer guidelines regarding the safe storage and handling of their products. Forbes works closely with these companies to ensure that MINIBULK systems satisfy their recommendations.

Many of the dangers associated with manual lifting and opportunities for exposure to chemicals are reduced and the system provides the assurance of bunded storage tanks and safe chemical storage.

Virtually any liquid can be stored safely in a Forbes MINIBULK® system.

Optional Extras

  • Ultrasonic level detection
  • Pneumatic level gauge
  • Level switches
  • Bund alarm systems – Detecting liquid in the bund

.

Where contents need to be protected from freezing we can offer the following:

  • Thermal insulation
  • Immersions heaters
  • Trace heating

Weather shrouds span the gap between the tank and bund walls to prevent the ingress of rainwater, if the system is being used outdoors. This can be supplied with access hatches as necessary for pipework and valves.

Access steelwork, as standard comprises of a platform above the bund, with ladder and safety gate. The platform would be 1000mm below the tank roof, allowing safe access to nozzles close to tank edge, which may require regular maintenance and access.
