For gasoline stations or fuel storage applications where a direct fill into the tank is not feasible, Fibrelite offers a complete line of remote and direct fill sumps for nearly any piping application. Available in a wide variety of configurations, all sumps are designed to create the maximum space for maintenance teams and installers to work. Fibrelite’s fill sumps are available completely pre-piped, allowing installers to simply connect the fill piping to the exterior of the sump. If preferred, Fibrelite can also ship sumps unassembled for field installation.
All sump surfaces are made of fully moulded fibreglass which provide a flat sealing face for the installation of penetration fittings.
To ensure a watertight installation, Fibrelite vacuum tests all fibreglass components of its sumps prior to shipment (fill sumps are factory tested to 24” water column). This provides customers with a high level of confidence that the sump will be watertight upon installation and throughout the lifetime of the site.
GRP (glass reinforced plastic) is very strong, non-corrosive and requires minimal maintenance during its working life. Chambers can be produced to be resistant to specific chemicals by using a special resin during the manufacturing process. We can also add an antistatic material within the surface of the chamber, to ensure it is fully conductive. Enclosures are guaranteed not to warp, bend or break after installation. A uniform moulded exterior allows for easy installation of bulkhead fittings.
All sumps are vacuum tested in one of our factories for tightness, ensuring against water ingress.
Our covers are designed with a watertight seal and are flush with grade level to prevent trip and fall injuries. Our ergonomically designed lifting handle provides safe removal and replacement of covers without risk of injury to the back and fingers.
When installed as a system, our remote and direct fill sumps will provide maximum protection for your fuel lines while allowing easy secure access for fuel delivery, maintenance and inspection for the lifetime of the site.
