Fabrication of a Steel Fuel Tank for a Mining Equipment Application
For more than 50 years Fabri-Tech has been offering high quality steel fuel tanks to OEMs in a wide range of industries. Their outstanding construction and long-term performance makes them desirable for heavy-duty applications, where quality and reliability are of paramount importance to production and safety.
This large capacity circular tank is used to store fuel for heavy earth moving equipment mainly used for mining applications. Fabricated from hot rolled pickled and oiled steel for strength and durability, it features dimensions of 57.5” in width, 84” in diameter, and was built within tight ± 0.120” tolerances. We used a variety of fabrication methods, including laser and saw cutting, as well as forming, rolling, and welding to manufacture the components. Post-assembly, we sandblasted the tank, then primed and painted it with a high-visibility gray coating.
The combination of high quality materials and expert craftsmanship ensured that this fuel tank would stand up to the stresses of a mining environment without exhibiting any cracking or fatigue. The flexibility of our operation enabled us to build 5 of these units in within a short, 4 week turnaround.
