What is a UL 142 fuel tank?

UL 142 tanks are steel aboveground storage tanks designed to safely store combustible, flammable liquids. UL 142s must meet construction standards enforced by the Underwriters’ Laboratories (UL) and National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). Important design considerations include using durable materials, allowing pressures up to 1 psig and installing safety controls like vents and leak detection.

All of WINBCO’s UL 142 chemical and petroleum storage tanks are custom-built within the parameters of the UL 142 code, with the option to request the orientation and shape of the tank based on your facility's needs. Whether horizontal or vertical, cylindrical, rectangular or round, we ensure compliance with all safety regulations established by the NFPA while curating a quality vessel unique to your processes and chemical compounds. All UL 142 tanks must be shop-assembled and cannot be erected in the field like other custom tanks we can build on-site for you. Once we talk through your specifications, our team gets to work fabricating your project in our 80,000+ square feet facility, where our highly trained technicians build, test and provide regular project updates to ensure our guaranteed on line, on time delivery.

UL 142 Aboveground Storage Tanks for Petroleum & Hazardous Chemicals

At WINBCO, we know UL 142 petroleum storage tanks pose a big risk to your facility, your employees and surrounding patrons if poisonous chemicals leak into the air or catch fire from an improperly constructed tank. That’s why we’ve established and innovated our own technology and automated welding equipment to provide the strongest quality, performance and finish, only possible through our specialty tools and expertise. We specialize in stainless steel fabrication for superior longevity and limited maintenance needs over the tank's lifespan. WINBCO minimizes the risk inherent to flammable liquids by procuring the sturdiest materials and parts to keep your tank firmly sealed and chemicals safely stored.

After completing assembly in our shop, our aboveground storage tanks undergo extensive testing in line with the UL 142 requirements. No tank leaves our site until we’ve proven it fits the criteria for the necessary hydrostatic strength, top loading, buoyancy and tank support load capabilities as determined by the NFPA and our own stringent quality assurance policies. We ensure no leaks are present and no structural damage exists so your risks of an explosion or chemical exposure are greatly reduced. Our custom UL 142 tanks range up to 80 feet long with 14 feet for a maximum diameter. With that in mind, we are happy to talk through your requests and provide customization for the following specifications:

  • Diameter
  • Height
  • Construction material
  • Internal and external design pressure
  • Design temperature
  • Design-specific gravity
  • Tank support
