Close Top Diked Generator Base Tanks


The Closed Top Diked Generator Base Tank is a single wall constructed tank secured in a covered dike (or rupture basin), and the rails of the dike have been designed to support the weight of the generator set. The cover for the dike is vented at one end and is designed to keep rain and debris from entering the dike. Each gusseted bolt hole on the dike has been designed and tested to support up to 4000 lbs. If this tank is UL Listed, it will include an emergency vent connection on the inner tank only. This connection can be fitted with an optional back pressure relief valve set at 8 oz.
