Northern Ireland Fuel

and Oil Storage

Regulations explained -

The Control of Pollution (Oil Storage)

Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2010 came

into force on 20 March 2011. These

regulations mean that all business owners

must ensure that all fuel and oil storage tanks

on their premises are bunded by December

2015. Those who don’t comply with the

regulations may face a fine of up to £20,000.

These regulations are enforced by the

Northern Ireland Environment Agency to:

Promote better oil storage

Protect the environment against

contamination from oil and fuel tanks

Minimise the risk of oil loss and spillage

How do I comply?

All oil storage tanks affected should be

provided with a secondary containment

system, commonly known as a ‘BUND’ or a

tank within a tank.

An integrally bunded tank consists of a

primary tank, which contains the oil or fuel.

The primary tank is then surrounded by an

outer bund area capable of containing at least

110% of the volume of the primary tanks

capacity.

Full details of the regulations can be obtained

from the Department of Environment (DOE)

Making your existing

heating system more

effective

Noisy or unreliable boilers, clunking pipes and cold radiatortops and bottoms are all symptoms of an inefficient heating system. Power flushing will remove the sludge and corrosion deposits which cause these problems and enable it to function effectively, giving you a warmer, quieter house. You may also find that you save money due to the systems' improved efficiency. Power flushing, also referred to as jet flushing and hard flushing, involves pumping water at high velocity through the heating system to force out accumulated deposits. The process is made more effective by the addition of powerful cleansing and mobilisation agents and the addition of corrosion inhibitors after flushing protects the system from future rust damage. Gilmore Plumbing uses Fernox chemicals. A system power flush by Gilmore Plumbing Coleraine takes less than a day and we aim to cause as little disturbance as possible.

Boiler Servicing

Boiler ServiceOil boiler servicing consists of a full service to the burner , boiler and oil tank. We clean the combustion chamber and check all seals and gaskets. On the burner we:- Replace The nozzle, Clean the blast tube Check / test solenoids Check clean photocell Test the ignition transformer Disassemble the oil pump off the burner and  replace any worn drive couplings Open pump clean internal filter Lubricate the motors shaft and bearings Check and adjust electrode settings Reassemble the burner and test, adjusting oil pressure and air settings to the manufactures recommended settings. On the oil tank we:- Clean/replace filter or strainer Inspect tank isolation Complete tank risk assessment Ensure remote and internal fire Valves operate correctly. Inspect for excessive corrosion and leaks on tanks and pipework Inspect location for safety
