Benefits of Using Portable Fuel Trailers for Industry and Agriculture

Portable fuel trailers are an essential resource for fuel management. Their job is to store, transport and dispense fuel efficiently and safely. Unlike stationary tanks, fuel trailers are built for transportation. They have specific design features such as towable hitches, baffles, double walls and strong single or dual-axle support to ensure excellent safety, management of load and stability of fuel when being moved. Here we consider the different benefits of using portable fuel trailers.

Convenient on-site accessibility
Having fuel readily accessible where you need it when you need it is one of the primary functions of portable fuel trailers. For industries such as mining which can often be remote or for large rural agricultural properties, this is especially advantageous. Agriculture, construction sites, mines and other industries are major beneficiaries of portable fuel trailers, ensuring their important equipment has adequate fuel and operations can continue without interruption.

Improved Efficiency
Fuel trailers are kitted out with different size storage tanks from 1,000L to 5,000L depending on regular fuel transport requirements. Having portable fuel supplies enables more efficient distribution of fuel to vehicles, machinery and equipment and prevents the need for off-site refuelling. Time saved can be utilised elsewhere in the business enhancing overall productivity.

Cost Savings
Portable fuel trailers also enable bulk purchasing and storage of fuel which opens the opportunity for cost savings when buying larger quantities of fuel in one go. When this is consistently done over a period of time, it can lead to significant cost savings. View our fuel savings calculator for more information on cost savings through bulk fuel purchasing.

What kind of fuel would you require for your fuel trailer? Durotankers can accommodate different fuels with diesel being the most popular option. Trailers are available in a range of tank sizes and with different pumps including 12v Flow meters with solar, electric start diesel pumps, Honda petrol pumps and air pumps. If you are based on a mine site, fuel trailers can also be fitted with mine spec options to ensure compliance.

Fuel trailers are fitted with a number of different safety features to ensure fuel is not leaked causing environmental damage. These included self bunded walls to ensure any spillage is contained within double walls, valves that shut off fuel flow in an emergency, baffling for stability of fuels whilst transporting, and heavy duty rollover protection rails in case of an unlikely accident.

To maximise portability, fuel trailers are fitted with quality tyres, allowing them to be easily towed by utes and similar vehicles to different locations and a heavy-duty jockey swivel wheel for enhanced ground clearance. This mobility makes them ideal for construction projects, farming operations, and other events where fuel needs can change rapidly.

Portable fuel trailers can positively impact a variety of industries and businesses. Their ability to provide on-site fuel accessibility, increase efficiency, save costs, and ensure compliance with safety regulations makes them a valuable asset. Streamline your operations, reduce downtime, and enhance your environmental responsibility with portable fuel trailers.

quote-01I purchased a Poly Tank Fuel Trailer from DUROTANK in April 2018. DUROTANK builds one of the best fuel trailers I have ever used. The build quality, engineering and attention to detail is unreal. The fuel trailer is rock solid, it tracks extremely well full of fuel at 100km/hr and its road worthy. All of the fittings are hoses are high quality hydraulic hose and crimped fittings so there are no leaks. The Durotank team is very easy to deal with and more than happy to help with any enquiries. The staff are friendly and it is a pleasure to do business with them. I’d buy another one in a heartbeat, that’s for sure
