McCloskey introduces the Fuel Hub product line—secure, environmentally friendly, transportable bunded tanks that allow for fast, efficient refueling at worksites around the world.
MADE FOR RUGGED CONDITIONS
The new Fuel Hub is available in eight sizes with capacities ranging from 450 to 10,000 liters and is perfect for use in a broad range of industries and on any terrain. Along with features to suit the unique needs of each project, the durable galvanized base frame and hatch plates ensure the McCloskey Fuel-Hub is suited for rugged conditions, whether on construction sites, in quarries, or in mines.
McCloskey’s fuel tanks have 110-percent bunded capacity, ensuring compliance with environmental standards and ensuring they are PPG compliant. They feature an easily removable inner tank and outer lid for maintenance, cleaning, and quick bund area viewing.
SPEEDY FUEL CONNECTIONS
Fuel Hubs feature primary and secondary manway access for speedy fuel connections. Equipped with three letter box openings for convenience and neat hose and cable entry, these openings also offer extra security on-site as the tops can be left closed and locked while in use. The two hatch plates are uniquely positioned on the McCloskey fuel hub range of tanks and are designed to allow the user true ease of handling. The primary hatch plate doubles up as an access manway and the secondary smaller hatch plate is designed and positioned to fit the user’s desired on-site usage requirements.
Unlike other tanks, the outer top lid has a 6-degree pitch running down its center to allow for rain and dust regress. It is fully removable to allow for full access to the bunded area, allowing the inner tank to be completely independent of the outer lid.
EASY TO HANDLE
The Fuel Hub is highly maneuverable, certified to be lifted when full (up to 4,500 liters), and features bidirectional forklift pockets, internal baffles, and four galvanized lifting hooks uniquely positioned to ensure balance for safe and easy handling. With its galvanized hex corners, the Fuel Hub is also space efficient, and can stack on-site, inside of shipping containers, and across truck beds two-high when full or three-high when empty.
With all connections, ports, hoses, and nozzles housed within the tank’s containment area and the 110-percent tank capacity, the Fuel Hub is environmentally friendly and has certifications across a broad range of industries worldwide. These include: UL 142, ULC S601, ULC 653, Transport Canada CGSB 43.146-2002, TSSA B139ON-2006, AS 1940, AS 1692, PPG 2 & PPG 26 compliance, and BS 799.
A full line of accessories are available for the Fuel Hubs, including flow meters, tank alarms, pumps, nozzles, hoses, reels, and tank level gauges.
