Sigle Wall Generator Base Tanks


This is E&CA’s standard Generator Base Tank. The tank is of a single wall construction, and the rails have been designed to support the weight of the generator set. Each gusseted bolt hole has been designed and tested to support up to 4000 lbs. If this tank is UL Listed, it will include an emergency vent connection. This connection can be fitted with an optional back pressure relief valve set at 8 oz. A tank which is to meet NFPA-30 of the National Fire Protection Association requires that the tank be built to “Recognized Standards of Design”. E&CA has elected to use UL-142, 1995 as its standard.
