So, the announcement that Kingspan is launching a domestic oil tank which is tough and unobtrusive is expected to be welcomed by all tank installers.
The new Kingspan Titan ESLP1200 Compact oil tank is the latest addition to the brand’s EcoSafe bunded oil tank range.
Its sturdy, low-profile design and high-quality, polyethylene construction means it’s well-suited to exposed sites, persistent strong winds, temperature fluctuations, and/or high levels of UV radiation.
Plus, along with the rest of the EcoSafe tank range, the ESLP1200 is HVO-ready, signifying that it can safely store Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil (HVO), a next-generation, low-carbon fuel that is attracting huge market interest. HVO is fully compatible with existing oil-fired boilers making it easy for property owners to switch to greener energy.
How Easy is the ESLP1200 tank to Install?
The ESLP1200 is very easy to install, thanks largely to the fact that it has one of the smallest footprint on the market – just 1200 x 1800mm. This means that it will fit on just 12 concrete slabs (600mm x 600mm), significantly cutting the time needed by an installer to lay a slab base.
But that’s not all. The tank has many other built-in attributes to help make installation as quick and easy as possible.
For example, it weighs just 130kg, which will help with handling and manoeuvring, as well as a Watchman Sonic Advanced Tank Pack to give installers everything they need to complete an installation.
The ESLP1200 Compact comes with a bottom outlet as standard while top outlet versions are available on request. Channels moulded into each side of the tank are designed to contain any top outlet pipework.
All EcoSafe tanks are double-skinned, made from recyclable polyethylene, and include a Spillstop mechanical overflow prevention device to safeguard against leaks and spills when the tank is being filled. The tanks have full regulatory and environmental compliance, and their durability is underlined by a 10-year manufacturer warranty.
Free SENSIT device with every EcoSafe tank
Finally, all EcoSafe tanks now come supplied with the Watchman Sonic Advanced Oil Level Monitor, which allows customers to view their oil levels via a display plug. This unit can be upgraded to a SENSiT Smart Wifi device by purchasing a dongle. Customers can then download an app free of charge and monitor their tank levels using their smartphone or tablet. Users also get access to additional features such as sudden-drop alerts, predicted run-out date, plus the device is compatible with Alexa.
And, for a limited time, Kingspan is giving away a SENSIT device free with every EcoSafe tank.
