Bulk Oil Storage
When it comes to storing oil in drums or in oil tanks, it’s important to be aware of a few precautions. First, ensure that the drum or oil tank is sealed at all times, as the oil can become contaminated. Make sure the bulk oil is stored in a cool place that will be free from moisture and condensation. For those who often purchase bulk oil, it’s better to store the oil in an oil tank than keep it in drums. Oil drums are known to leak, and are more vulnerable to spills. If an oil spill should occur, it’s important to clean it up as soon as possible. If even a small amount of oil washes into the sewer or permeates into the ground, it can have serious effects on the water. Even a few drops of oil can contaminate several gallons of fresh water, and it also makes said water near impossible to filter back into fresh water.For owners of all different kinds of engines, purchasing oil in bulk makes a lot of sense.
For owners who use the same engine for a significant period of time and need to purchase oil often, it’s possible to cut costs when purchasing bulk oil.
