Delivery of Fultonsyrup

FULTONSYRUP is delivered in bulk loads up to 35 tons. Tanks should be built to hold and dispatch bulk liquids, with at least 40 tons capacity to take in the load while there is still some product in the tank.

Loads are pumped from the delivery truck, either by using the top door or by pumping in through the outlet pipe. If your tank is underground, the top door is adequate. However, if your tank is free standing in your
yard, then the outlet pipe must be used for delivery. If your tank is underground, it is important that the pump can handle sufficient
quantities of the product. The fittings on the outlet of your tank must match those on the delivery vehicles.

Please talk to us in advance if you need any further details.

Storage Tank Maintenance & Cleaning

Storage tanks should be well maintained and cleaned out regularly, typically monthly, to prevent any build-up of sediment. The tank should be angled towards the outlet to stop sediment build up and for ease of cleaning. Some tanks come with self-cleaning systems, but most tanks need to be washed with an approved disinfectant and a power hose.

Make sure you follow appropriate safety procedures for cleaning and have suitable safety equipment to hand. If you are putting up your tank outside, then it must be insulated, have an agitator, and be sufficiently raised so that the diet feeder can get under the outlet. FULTONSYRUP is delivered hot so be careful around the tank directly after it’s delivered.
