Forecourt Trader - 30 years at the heart of the fuel retailing community

Suresite's new solution

Suresite has launched a new wet-stock management solution, which it claims has zero tolerance to water, the catalyst for accelerated tank corrosion due to modern fuel formulations.

Biofuels and ultra-low sulphur products have turned the tank maintenance rules upside down with microbial activity, facilitated by the presence of water, causing acidic secretions that attack metal components in the wet and dry space of the tank, according to Dan Gibson, Suresite's wet stock manager. "Historically, forecourt owners accepted that their underground tanks may contain some water deposits at the bottom of a tank," he explained. "Acceptance of water in the latest fuel formulation fuels could create very costly problems for forecourt owners and operators further down the line. The goal has to be zero tolerance."

Suresite, through its licensed service partnership with Leighton O'Brien, claims to offer the most advanced wet-stock management system available in the UK. It's an independent, certified, real-time solution which the company believes leads the industry in accuracy for leaks and fuel losses.

"Our solution means that a water reading will trigger a liquid level alert as it happens and we will take immediate action to remedy this," said Gibson.
