According to Favia, the secondary containment design gives his customers the versatility to place tanks wherever needed on a project, rather than having to locate them in specially designated fuel containment areas that are common on construction sites. "The fire department or an inspector might drop by to check on a fuel tank setup and ensure it's contained," added Favia. "Transcube has extensive, built-in secondary containment. That really gives the customer peace of mind."
Flexibility and versatility have been key aspects of AmeriTemp's experience with Transcube, particularly when working with customers who have multiple heaters or generators to fuel, or for those who are fueling that type of equipment while also requiring a fuel pump to fill up vehicles.
"You can run multiple lines from the Transcube," said Favia. "One customer operates a large tractor shed where they maintain vehicles. We've had oil-fired heaters on rental for more than a decade, but a year ago we sent one of our 528-gallon Transcubes and it's been there since. The tank is set up where a heater is running off a quick connect, and we also have a transfer pump in there. They can fill up any equipment they want and keep the heater going simultaneously."
Favia noted that tank and equipment setup takes about 10 to 15 minutes, compared to a four-hour process with some traditional style tanks - a significant difference for productivity-conscious clients. The tanks also give AmeriTemp the flexibility to shop around for better fuel prices, or to use a certain supplier of his customer's choosing, without worrying about the potential hassles of a tank coming along with the fuel.
"Our customers are more satisfied," said Favia. "The tanks are easier to use and are so much cleaner than anything else out there."
