Adler and Allan partners with Hoyer over road tanker testing
The contract will include holding their fleet details on a secure database to ensure that all tests are carried out on schedule. Clients have password-protected database access to view their fleet information, including test results and certificates.
The integrity of the barrel and tank on road tankers should be tested every two years according to the Road Traffic (Carriage of Dangerous Substances in Road Tankers and Tank Containers) Regulations 1992.
Adler and Allan is approved by the Department for Transport to provide road tanker testing across the UK and issue Safe Loading Passes as well as meeting strict UKAS standards (0311 Type C Inspection Body Accredited to ISO/IEC 17020:2012).
The company is also approved and accredited for testing general purpose and bitumen tanks as well as meter and fire extinguisher testing, which is required annually.
Andrew Clarke, forecourt services managing director, Adler and Allan, said: “We are delighted that HOYER Petrolog UK has trusted us with their road tanker testing in the UK. As well as road tanker testing we are accredited to perform vapour tightness testing, intermediate and periodic inspection and testing.
“We are also experts in chemical compliance and have a 24/7 hazardous materials advice line. If you are transporting any bulk liquid in the UK, we can ensure you remain compliant and safe.”
The news follows the latest announcement that Adler and Allan has extended its leak detection capability by offering Leighton O’Brien’s Automatic Tank Gauge Alarm Management solution and Wetstock Live fuel management software to the UK petroleum industry.
