Bulk Fuel Storage
& Distribution

During the initial stages of facility design, Fuel Storage and Distribution Systems are often overlooked or minimized. While the use of a standalone day tank for testing engines is practical for short duration tests of small engines, large industrial engines often require more sophisticated Fuel Storage and Distribution Systems.

That’s why Taylor Dynamometer provides custom design and implementation of robust bulk systems for your test cell.

System Setup

Test cell size, local building codes and safety concerns often prevent you from storing enough fuel in your test cell to efficiently run your operation.

Bulk fuel storage tanks located away from the test cell area (typically outside), combined with an automatic day tank (or fuel measurement unit) in the dynamometer room, allow for an adequate and safe supply of fuel.
