Dura-Cast provides rendering company managers with innovative solutions: when they told us they needed better options for their on-site used oil storage, we started our product development process.
RENDERING COMPANY’S CHALLENGE
“Because existing tanks are not secured, we are losing hundreds of gallons of oil each year to theft. Fabricated metal tanks are heavy, rust, and don’t look good in a short period of time. Couldn’t a plastic tank be developed to solve our problems?”
THE EQUIPMENT PROBLEM
Securing the contents of existing collection tanks has been a problem. Tank distribution and maintenance requires two people due to the weight of the tank. Fabricated metal tanks require maintenance, and plastic barrel replacements are poor substitutes.
- Manufactured with High Density Polyethylene, Collector Tanks are lightweight & won’t rust
- 8″ Secured Access to Contents protects oil from theft
- Built-in Fill Basket contains spillage & keeps large debris from tank
- Molded-In Tank Calibrations allow visual confirmation of oil level
- Wide Selection of Standard Colors to match your company’s or your customer’s colors
Dura-Cast developed the Collector Tank™ family of tanks specifically for on-site storage of used cooking oil.
Collector Tanks are designed to provide either indoor or outdoor containment for 80, 125, 200, 275, or 325 gallons of used cooking oil. These polyethylene tanks are designed to be lightweight, strong, durable, and attractive. After many years of use, it will still clean-up easily and look good.
The Dura-Cast Design Team created tanks that are pounds lighter than comparable fabricated metal tanks, and developed structural models that permit tanks to withstand hot oils up to 140°F. Ergonomic principles were applied with a lower fill area for easier pouring. The built-in recessed filler basket and splash panels help contain spillage and prevent large particles from entering the tank.
Covers and lids were designed to minimize odors, keep out rain, and provide secured access through an 8″ pump-out port. Optional secured access ports on the 200 and the 275 gallon tanks permit easy pump-out from the opposite end of the tank or easy access to the inside surfaces for cleaning.
The tank and the lid can have different colors, and can be matched to your company colors or your customer’s colors. Company name, logo, and phone number can be permanently embedded with molded-in graphics to increase company and brand exposure.
