FUELING SOLUTIONS ARE IN THE TransCUBE Fuel DOT Approved
selected Transcube fuel transportation tanks from Western International Inc.
Based in Johnsburg, Ill., AmeriTemp supplies portable climate control and power products for rent to construction contractors, industrial and manufacturing facilities and event organizers. Western International, Norwalk, Conn., produces the Transcube fuel tanks, which are UL and DOT approved, the company said. “With a lot of jobs, and big heating jobs especially, there’s a need to keep equipment going continuously,” said Al
Favia, president of AmeriTemp Ltd. “It’s inconvenient for the customer to constantly have fuel delivered to a site. Having heaters and generators hooked directly to a fuel tank to keep them going makes much more sense.”
To date, AmeriTemp has three 264 gal. Transcube tanks and three 528 gal. units in its fleet. The Transcube tanks use quick-connect fittings for installation, allowing a fuel hose to plug into the fuel supply. AmeriTemp has converted its entire fleet of machines with a quick connect for use with the Transcube fuel tanks. Western International has designed its Transcube tanks to be doublewalled, with an outer wall that offers 110% secondary containment of the total capacity of the inner fuel tank. All fill ports and connections are located within the secondary containment area to contain any fuel drips.
According to Favia, the Transcube’s secondary containment gives customers the versatility to place tanks wherever needed on a job site, rather than having to locate them in a specially designated fuel containment area.
“The fire department or an inspection might drop by to check on a fuel tank setup and ensure it’s contained,” said Favia. “Having a tank with builtin containment gives the customer peace of mind.” The Transcube tanks feature forklift pockets on all four sides, which are intended to make moving the tank simpler. The rectangular shape of the tank also allows units to be stacked,saving space if more than one is being
hauled or stored, the company said. With a DOT approval, the Transcube tank can be transported while completely full of fuel.
“Our operation doesn’t carry full tanks too often,” said Favia. “But we’ve worked some week-long events where that type of need does arise, so road transport is a nice option to have. And knowing the tank is certified also gives our customers the flexibility to move the
tanks around on-site without worrying about spilling fuel.” AmeriTemp has several customers renting multiple pieces of enginepowered
equipment — all of which require a fuel source for operation. “You can run multiple lines from the Transcube,” said Favia. “We have
one customer who operates a large tractor shed where they maintain dozers, tractors and other vehicles.
We’ve had oil-fired heaters out there on rental for more than a decade, but a little over a year ago we sent one of our 528 gal. Transcubes and it’s been there since. “The tank is set up where a heater is running off a quick connect, and then we also have a transfer pump in there. So they can fill up any equipment they want that runs off diesel and keep the heater going at the same time.”
According to Favia, tank and equipment setup can be accomplished in about 10 to 15 minutes. “The tanks have simplified life for us,” said Favia. “They’re easier to use and are so much cleaner. And ultimately, what really matters is that our customers are more satisfied.” dp
