For fuel storage applications, our tanks are designed with unique fabrics to accommodate aviation and jet fuels, diesel, JP 8, JP 4, AV-GAS and gasoline (MOGAS). IPI supplies industrial, power and energy companies worldwide; and our tanks are used in oil spill recovery operations, for bulk liquid transport and the storage of bilge slops. Standard tank models are designed for land based, stationary operations, but can also be used on the decks of boats and large marine vessels with proper support. Our standard fuel bladder tanks sizes range from 100 gallons to 150,000 gallons capacities and larger, with custom manufactured fuel storage bladders and cells also available to exacting specifications.
Our military style fuel bladders are built with military grade materials and may also be fabricated to meet US Mil Spec requirements using a variety of flexible, fuel resistant fabrics which provide ultraviolet light and chemical resistance. Collapsible storage tanks are suitable for unblended diesel fuel for long term storage or unblended gasoline less than 1 year. Interstate Products offers a variety of secondary containment solutions, including spill berms, which should be used for all fuel storage operations to facilitate compliance with various SPCC and EPA regulations. To meet SPCC regulations, spill berms are typically used for storage applications of less than 5000 US gallons; berm Liners are recommended for use on any tanks over 5000 gallons for secondary containment. Users should check with all local regulatory agencies before deploying collapsible storage systems in public areas.
