Impurities in waste oil tanks

What You Need to Know About Waste Oil Holding Tanks

Waste oil holding tanks are specifically designed to store waste oil. Sophisticated waste oil holding tanks are sustainable and highly effective at maintaining the cleanest possible waste oil by reducing the potential for contamination. These tanks help to remove excess impurities from the oil that naturally settle and separate. Preserving waste oil quality is critical for efficient recycling as fuel.


What to Look for in a Waste Oil Tank

Managing waste oil should only be done with the right equipment and know-how. Start by reaching out to an expert, like EnergyLogic, that can advise you on some best practices. As you move forward and consider purchasing an oil tank, look for the following:

An elevated fuel pick-up capability—this apparatus sits six inches above the bottom of the tank. Since impurities will invariably settle after sitting for a period of time, this feature keeps them from being reintroduced to the oil—leaving you with cleaner oil than what you started with. Low fuel cut off technology. Certain tanks can detect low levels of fuel, which signals the system to turn off. This feature helps eliminate problems and keeps the tank from running unnecessarily. In turn, this can help you save energy and money.

A drain valve will make cleaning a breeze. Drain valves allow easy removal of impurities, contaminants, sludge, and other impurities, which tend to settle at the bottom of the tank over time. A tank without this feature calls for an incredible amount of maintenance!


The correct size. Tanks that come in various sizes (such as 130–500 gallons) are going to give you more options and adaptability. A tank that comes in a smaller size is a better fit for your personal home needs. Additionally, the size and type of tank can potentially affect how efficiently your tank and waste oil heater work together.


A warranty. You can never go wrong with a product with a great warranty. A timely, money back guarantee also suggests that a company is confident in the quality and performance of its products—and that you can be too.


Energy Logic gives customers the option of purchasing a tank emergency vent, which provides extra protection against flame combustion. We also offer an additional filtering option that helps remove excess particles from oil before it enters the tank, saving your drain valve and tank some extra work in the future.


The right provider. A provider that adapts to your installation needs and provides continued phone and field support is a valuable resource. In addition to phone, email, and field support, Energy Logic also provides in-depth how-to videos on its webpage to help customers get started and feel confident about their investments.
