Western Global, Clawson, Mich., a manufacturer of fuel and fluid storage solutions, introduced the EnviroCube, designed for convenient, secure, and economical on-site refueling and fuel storage. The tank is for refueling equipment and fleet vehicles as well as reducing downtime and lessening fuel costs, the manufacturer said. A lockable cabinet keeps fuel secure and controls access to hoses, ports, and fittings, protecting them from the elements and theft.
Barry Truan, Western Global general manager, said, “With the EnviroCube, customers can reduce expenses by taking advantage of lower per-gallon rates by purchasing fuel in bulk and scheduling deliveries when prices are low.”
Western Global said it engineered the box-shaped fuel storage system for easy and inexpensive movement. The EnviroCube stays within height, length and width standards for over-the-road transport, the company said. It also occupies less space on site compared to round tanks of similar capacities, the company said. Once the unit is on site, contractors can move the tank via crane lifting hooks or four-way forklift pockets.
The system’s full-height cabinet secures all pumping equipment, which enables Western Global to install components prior to shipping, reducing on-site setup time. Additionally, in-cabinet shelving provides convenient space for customers to store extra tools and supplies.
The weatherproof, double-walled design provides fluid containment, eliminating the need to own and clean a secondary pan or basin while ensuring environmental compliance, the manufacturer said. A top access hatch simplifies inspections, cleaning, and routine maintenance.
To increase fueling flexibility and efficiency, Western Global equips the tank with multiple ports to simultaneously fuel as many as three pieces of equipment. Letterbox-style openings on the tank’s side allow it to act as an auxiliary fuel source for equipment such as generators, pumps, and light towers while the cabinet remains locked.
Western Global offers the tank in four models with capacities ranging from 4,966 gallons (18,800 liters) to 12,329 gallons (46,672 liters) to meet the fuel demands of a variety of commercial operations.
