TK-PSAXSS Petrol Station Anti-Explosion Safety System

TK-PSAXSS TechnoKontrol-Petrol Station Anti-Explosion Safety System

As there are millions of explosions every year within our Towns and Cities, the Technokontrol´s Research & Development team has designed a new VI Generation patented product in which via utilizing our new safety technology our TK-PSAXSS can prevent any fuel discharge explosion from occurring within a petroleum depot´s environment.  These explosions normally are initiated by the concentration of gas, heat, fuel-gas leaks, sparks and / or electrostatic discharges.

The risk of discharging fuels at petrol stations

Discharging fuel

We have all heard that underground fuel deposits do not explode under any circumstances but our scientists can assure you that no matter how small the risk, fuel deposits can explode with some explosions creating the same damage as that of a semi-nuclear explosion.

Therefore petrol stations are areas where explosive atmospheres can be present even under normal operating conditions. The reason for this is that petrol or gas fumes are heavier than air and when a customer refuels their vehicle with petrol or gas, fumes can be leaked. These fumes are invisible to the naked eye and when leaked they will drift downwards (due to their weight) or they can also be pushed upwards from underground tanks due to overpressure and when mixed with air can form a very dangerous explosive atmosphere.  Thus one single spark or electrostatic charge can make these fumes turn into a fireball explosion.

TK Alloy

To alleviate this risk factor or possibility of an explosion, a petrol station can use our specially designed alloy which is 100% anti explosive.  Our product is not only non combustible and easy to maintain, but as is already used within many different chemical safety applications under EU Safety Directives.

What is TK-PSAXSS?

It is a unique system which enables the petrol-chemical industry to avoid the possibility of any explosions taking place within their fuel deposit communications infrastructure and studies show that it is both cost effective and easy to incorporate into any corporations existing operations budget.

The TK-PSAXSS System will enable any Petrol Station or Depot to operate safely and to naturally discharge their fuels with total security that no explosion will occur as any fumes leaked will not be diffused and therefore will not be able to ignite.

Other Benefits of TK-PSAXSS

  • It is easy to adapt/modify so as to attach onto any existing maintenance hole cover (if required)
  • It contains a unique anti theft system which does not interfere with the entrance or exit of authorized personnel.(optional)
  • It is 100% transferable and reusable
  • It is 100% eco-friendly and 100% recyclable
  • It is easy to clean and maintain

TK-PSAXSS- How to apply the safety system?

In order for our TK-PSAXSS system to 100% protect against a petrol station or depot from exploding, the entire volume of the respective chamber or chamber shafts must be entirely protected with our safety technology. Once protected, the possibility of an explosion occurring within one of these spaces is non-existent.

In addition to this, we recommend that at the time of installing TK-PSAXSS that the respective petrol station or depot incorporates into their operations budget the installation of our Technokontrol Valve System.  These systems will not only further increase the safety of the petrol stations tanks, but they will also provide the client with an increase in fuel discharged (i.e. reduce the time needed to unload the product) by up to 40%.   These savings will enable our clients to recover the cost of installing both the TK-Fuel Valve System and our TK-PSAXSS safety systems.

Installation of TK-PSAXSS

Chamber system construction

As with any business, if a particular section of a business is closed for any length of time, it can become extremely costly. For both the operator and owner if an explosion takes place they will have to deal with two costs, the first and more important cost is that of the loss of life or social costs and the second costs are those of an indirect nature such as closing down the business, loss of earnings, legal action, investigations, rebuilding etc.  However, as TK-PSAXSS takes away the threat of any explosion occurring, all the above costs are automatically eliminated.

The installation process is extremely quick. Once we have the details of the discharge unit, size, capacity and design we will produce a suitable unit to be installed. We always recommend that our clients conduct a pre-order inspection so as to ensure the correct details are obtained and thus enabling any changes to be dealt with at a pre-manufacturing stage.

Once the above details are established and confirmed the manufacturing process will begin.  After which as the units are pre- constructed to meet every client´s individual needs the TK-PSAXSS can be installed with minimal disruption or closure of the tanks taking place.

Technokontrol International Safety & Quality Standards

As Technokontrol operates all of its facilities (i.e. research, development and manufacturing) within the European Union we can ensure that our clients will receive a finished product which meets (if not surpasses) the highest possible International Accident, Health & Safety Standards.

Standards such as

  • US NFPA-69-2008-Standards on Explosion preventing Systems
  • UK- SI 1982/630 Petroleum spirit for use in both motor vehicles & plastic containers.
  • EU- ADR Directive 1999/36CE
  • ISO 9000, ISO14000, ISO18000, 1SO23000 (2012)
  • CE Certified Manufacturer.(2012)

Maintenance

As our TK-PSAXSS System is made by means of a new VI generation alloy mesh it is both easy to clean and to maintain however most importantly our mesh is both 100% eco-friendly and recyclable.

Studies show that our TK-PSAXSS system is both a cost effective and efficient system and therefore any operator can easily incorporate it into their operation program.

Because our TK-PSAXSS system comes with a low level maintenance system it can be lifted, cleaned (by hand or by compressed air) and replaced within 5 minutes.
