The Andel BundGuard system was developed in 1992 specifically at the request of the UK electricity industry who faced serious water removal problems at substation sites all over the country. Since then many thousands of BundGuard units have been installed nationwide protecting the environment and the operator of the site.
Andel ReBund™ is a tried and tested, easy to install, low-cost bunding or containment system. Developed along with the Green Business Network, ReBund™ not only makes a major contribution to second-life, recycled products but is also a first-class, strong, durable and economic long-term solution.
Worried about abnormal use of stored liquids or maybe even potential theft? Andel’s TankGuard RMS makes the job simple for end users. Using GSM technology, this monitoring solution based on cloud services can give warnings of potential thefts and leaks of your stored water. An ultrasonic sensor is installed on the tank and this pairs with a GSM modem to relay back to our online service the levels of water in the tank.
The sensor is capable of also monitoring oil, fuel, grain and indeed most products that aren't high risk or volatile.
If you are storing fuel to power back-up generators, you may have a problem if you store fuel for more than 6 months, have not had your storage systems inspected in a long time, operate in places with extremes of weather or cannot determine the quality of your delivered fuel. Fuel and oil sampling can give an early warning of any potential problems and remedial polishing, if possible, is more cost-effective than having to dispose of contaminated supplies.
The Control of Pollution (Oil Storage) (England) Regulations 2001 set out the requirements to be met for the safe storage of oil in containers above ground. As of September 1st, 2005, all oil storage containers above 200 litres are required to comply with these regulations. Andel has been carrying out Oil Storage Compliance Inspections throughout the UK for over 25 years with customers including the Environment Agency, Royal Mail, Arriva Buses, County/Borough Councils, MoD sites, and over 80 NHS Hospitals and Trusts. Andel customers have annual contracts in place to ensure that they achieve and maintain compliance with all current regulations.
Continual product development and listening to customer feedback sees the greatest future improvement to the BundGuard. The information provided here is to demonstrate the improved operation compared to the Issue 4 unit including an array of onward communications options. Not all features are standard – the modular design means customers pay for what they need.
