We specialise in the replacement of oil storage tanks using our own Oftec trained and registered engineers, we carry out all types of oil tank installations and replacements from small domestic tanks to larger commercial installations. All of our work is carried out in accordance with the Oftec and Environmental Agency guidelines.
AFM is an approved Atlas Tanks installer.
We recommend a tank inspection every two years, which include a visual inspection of the oil tank for integrity, the oil line/joints for weepage and test the tank for water.
The presence of water in oil can damage the burner and encourage a bacterial growth in the oil tank, this can block oil lines, damage the burner and contaminate the fuel.
We recommend the oil line if buried be pressure tested every five years for integrity.
A free of charge site survey is carried out to discuss your requirements from upgrade to compliance issue, an Oil Storage Tank Risk Assessment is carried out and we explain what is required to comply with current regulations, should it be necessary, a written fixed quotation is then provided.
