Compact Stations are CGH’s answer for an effortless, uncomplicated and fast to construct operational petrol station and is ideal for service
stations located in remote and rural areas. The design of a Compact Station is driven by two main objectives:
- Fully pre-assembled and tested in the factory.
- Straightforward on-site installation.
Total fuel storage capacities ranging from 30 up to 60 m3 are obtained with a single storage tank or with two tanks, installed side by side in the excavation. The tanks are always double-walled and multi-compartment to accommodate 3 to 4 different fuel grades. The tanks comply with the EN 12285-1, SANS 1535 standard.
A polyurethane coated steel central chamber, welded onto the tank, houses all station components including manway lids, mounting frames for one or two dispensers and fill connectors. The chamber is divided in gastight sections to limit the volume of potential vapor accumulation. To offer maximum fuel distribution flexibility, a builtin manifold is also possible.
The tank with access chamber is strapped onto a speed chassis, which also supports the frame that allows the installation of a customer-specified canopy. The frame is designed to absorb the weight and wind loads exerted by the canopy, without transferring forces onto the tank. In a two-tank Compact Station, a smartly designed alignment frame facilitates and ensures the correct positioning of the main and secondary tank in the excavation. All interconnecting pipes, cut to length and with fittings installed, are part of the delivery, as well as vent pipes, manhole covers and other accessories.
