  • Baffles: Two internal baffles, also constructed from Aluminum 5454 (.249 in. thick), help prevent cargo surge and maintain stability during transport.
  • LED Lighting: Grote DOT approved, sealed LED lights with an aluminum light box provide excellent illumination and long-lasting performance.
  • Sandblasted Steel Parts: Steel components undergo sandblasting for a smooth surface and improved paint adhesion.

Durable and Reliable Components

  • Central Discharge: A 4-inch discharge line with a 90-degree curbside orientation facilitates easy offloading.
  • Butterfly Valve: A reliable butterfly valve controls the flow of crude oil.
  • Emergency Shut-Off: An Emco Wheaton emergency valve with air operation provides a crucial safety feature in case of emergencies.
