The fuel bladder the fuel storage bladder is a flexi-bag that acts as a fuel container.They are collapsible flexible storage bladders (also known as tanks) that provide transportation and storage (temporary or long-term) for bulk industrial liquids such as fuel.Standard bladder capacities range from 100 US gallons (380 L) to 200,000 US gallons (760,000 L) and beyond.Custom fuel storage bladders and batteries may be used, but there is an increased risk of fuel leaks above 50,000 US gallons (190,000 liters).To minimize the risk of leaks, and to contain catastrophic leaks, all fuel bladders should be housed in secondary containment (dikes).Using fuel bladders without taking precautions is risky and should not be performed.EPA has established clear guidelines for the use of secondary containment in relation to fuel bladders and fines for releasing fuel into the environment.
Fuel bladders are used in various fields such as agribusiness, public works, humanitarian, military and industrial.Standard tanks are designed for use and operation on land, but with proper support they can also be used in marine environments and aviation.Fuel bladders are also commonly used in oil spill recovery operations.The high-end fuel bladder provides a high degree of protection for the stored liquid, ensuring that the contents never come into contact with the air.This ensures that there is no risk of evaporation or explosion due to gas formation.To prevent liquid contamination, a neutral barrier membrane is added to the interior of the fuel bladder.
Fuel bladders are most useful in situations where critical infrastructure is damaged or non-existent.The benefits of using flexible storage systems like fuel bladders include their ability to be shipped and installed quickly.GMA Cover Corp. advertises their pillow-shaped airbags as being collapsible and occupying less than 5% of their overall volume.Fuel bladders are highly resistant to climatic conditions, making them ideal for disaster zone and wartime desert operations.
High-end fuel bladders are made from elastomer-coated fabrics, usually manufactured by homogeneous vulcanization in one operation. The fabric ensures the mechanical strength required for transport and storage.Coating and design engineering provide compatibility with intended content (fuel).Fuels are generally classified as hazardous and therefore have strict regulations on container construction, field performance and marking.
