Container Fuel Stations

Container Fuel Stations

Krampitz has been manufacturing fuel station modules in containerized form since 1998. The first fuel stations were still without container transport frames in ISO standard dimensions. The production of container fuel stations started with the mentioned ISO transport frame at the end of 1999.

The first major customer for these systems was the German Federal Armed Forces. To this day, Krampitz produced and delivered more than 1,000 container units of the most diverse types and for a wide range of applications worldwide.

Based on the experience gained in this area, we began to reclassify and standardise our fuel station variants last year. As of today, we distinguish between professional, industrial applications for bulk consumers and logistics companies on the one hand, and professional, commercial fuel stations on the other hand.

In addition to the design details, the requirements for excellent corrosion protection are very important. In this area, we have gained deeper insights by the worldwide use of our devices in different climate zones. This also applies to UV resistance of the topcoat. With regard to UV exposure, it makes a big difference whether the product is used in Europe or, for example, in the Sahara.

Fuel station equipment is also subject to particularly high requirements in extremely cold regions such as Scandinavia and Canada. This applies to the central control system as well as to the pumps and switches.

However, in extremely hot regions you need design elements such as sunroofs to prevent the fuel in the tanks from heating up excessively.

Most containers are used as diesel fuel stations.
We also produce straight gasoline or kerosene fuel stations.

The structure differs in:

  1. One-compartment, two-compartment and three-compartment systems;
  2. Containers with and without transport frame;
  3. Compact fuel stations
    (tank and all equipment components in one container shell)
  4. Universal modular-type fuel stations
    This means: separate storage tank container combining one or more 20 ft combo equipment platform/s that can house several equipment. Universal modular-type fuel stations are increasingly being used for highly professional, commercial vehicle, boat and airfield fuel stations.

Based on our experience, we developed the following designs as standard for container fuel stations:

1. Smart Fuel Stations

This design is characterised by a simple, functional construction. The tank shell is cubic, double-walled, made of steel, and equipped with electronic vacuum leakage monitoring. The tank shell is positioned on a robust container floor assembly of box sections. This design has no circumferential transport frame.

An equipment niche is arranged in the front wall accommodating various components such as controls, filters, pumps, dispensers, etc.

A compact, lockable hatch compartment is mounted on the roof above the connecting flanges and the dome access point.

The tank shell is sandblasted (SA 2.5), primed and painted from the outside. The total layer thickness is 160 μm.

The inner tank can be fully coated or equipped with a coated floor trough.

The dimensions of a smart fuel station are selected in such a way that an optimum transport by truck is possible as well as loading into an HC freight container. This will also guarantee trouble-free transport with container ships.

Smart fuel stations are produced with the following volume: 5,000 litres, 10,000 litres, and 20,000 litres.

In case of annual maintenance and adherence to service intervals, the service life of the shell will be at least 30 years.

Smart fuel stations are primarily designed for simple applications such as company fuel stations. They are only available as a one-compartment system for the following media: diesel, gasoline, urea, engine oil, used oil, kerosene.

2. Minotaur Compact Fuel Stations

This series is characterised by a complex structure of the tank shell in an ISO container frame. The tank shell is cubic, double-walled, made of steel, and equipped with electronic vacuum leakage monitoring.

On one side of the container, there is a large dispenser niche, a narrow transfer pump niche and a narrow electric installation niche. The electric installation niche houses in addition to the central control system the back office (computer, remote communications module, CCTV, etc.) of the fuel station. The transfer pump niche houses up to two transfer pumps.

The tank equipment (connection flanges for the filling and fuelling fittings as well as the tank fittings) and the dome access point are arranged on the tank roof in one or two compact, fully lockable hatch compartments. There is one hatch compartment per tank compartment.

The compact fuel stations are manufactured as one-compartment and two-compartment systems.

The tank shell is sandblasted (SA 2.5), primed and painted from the outside. Depending on the coating system and application area, the total layer thickness is 160 to 240 μm.

The inner tank can be fully coated or equipped with a coated floor trough. The internal coating is approved for fuels.

The dimensions refer to the Krampitz Minotaur grid of 20 ft and 40 ft high cube frames.

The compact fuel stations can be provided with CSC labels by the GL (Germanischer Lloyd) approval. This means that they can be shipped worldwide as fully-fledged containers.

The volume of the 20 ft HC compact fuel station as a one-compartment tank is approx. 29,000 litres as opposed to the two-compartment version: compartment 1 – approx. 21,460 litres and compartment 2 – approx. 8,370 litres.

The volume of the 40 ft HC compact fuel station as a one-compartment tank is approx. 60,500 litres as opposed to the two-compartment version: compartment 1 – approx. 44,650 litres and compartment 2 – approx. 15,030 litres.

In case of annual maintenance and adherence to service intervals, the service life of the shell will be at least 30 years. This information refers to the tank shell made of steel.

This series is suitable for company fuel stations as well as for simple commercial fuel stations.

The compact fuel stations may be used to dispense diesel, fuel oil, kerosene, gasoline, and Avgas.

3. Minotaur Universal Modular-Type Fuel Stations

This fuel station system is characterized by combining several system containers. Krampitz offers storage tank containers in one-compartment, two-compartment, and three-compartment versions installed into the 20 ft HC and/or 40 ft HC ISO transport frame.

The tank shell is cubic, double-walled, made of steel, and equipped with electronic leakage monitoring. A large equipment niche is arranged in the front wall accommodating the transfer pumps and the central control system. When storing gasoline and diesel, the equipment niche can be divided into a separate compartment to accommodate the gasoline transfer pump and into a larger compartment to accommodate the diesel and fuel oil pumps.

The tank equipment and the dome access points are arranged on the tank roof in fully lockable hatch compartments. There is one hatch compartment per tank compartment.

The tank shell is sandblasted (SA 2.5), primed and painted from the outside. Depending on the coating system and application area, the total layer thickness is 160 to 240 μm.

The inner tank can be fully coated or equipped with a coated floor trough. The internal coating is approved for fuels.

The universal storage tank containers can be provided with CSC labels by the GL (Germanischer Lloyd) approval. This means that they can be shipped worldwide as fully-fledged containers.
