Baffle Cutting

Baffle Cutting

DP Fuel Tank provides a safe and highly efficient baffle cutting service. Dual and multiple-compartment tanks were popular on forecourts in the days when service stations had to sell three or four grades of petrol, plus diesel.

These days, with fewer grades to deal with, the trend is towards fewer but larger tanks. 

During our baffle cutting process, we can safely cut holes in the baffle plates that separate the compartments in multi-compartment tanks. Thus creating one large tank.

This type of cutting can be safely carried out with the tanks in place. Tanks are drained and gas-freed, with the perforations in the dividing bulkhead being created by hot or cold cutting. This is depending on safe working conditions.
