Tag: fuel truck

A tank truck or tanker truck (United States usage) or petrol tanker (United Kingdom usage, both commonly shortened to tanker) is a motor vehicle designed to carry liquefied loads, dry bulk cargo or gases on roads. The largest such vehicles are similar to railroad tank cars which are also designed to carry liquefied loads. Many variants exist due to the wide variety of liquids that can be transported. Tank trucks tend to be large; they may be insulated or non-insulated; pressurized or non-pressurized; and designed for single or multiple loads (often by means of internal divisions in their tank). Some are semi-trailer trucks. They are difficult to drive due to their high center of gravity.

Job Site Support Equipment

Grading and excavating sites typically bring to mind big iron, but it also takes a lot of support equipment to complete a job—and even to begin one. The typical job site is home to job trailers for the foreman’s office long before utilities arrive. Trailers are filled with power-hungry systems.

Planning to Succeed

“If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail” is a quote credited to Benjamin Franklin. Perhaps nowhere is this more critical than a construction site, with its various inherent components needed to ensure success from compact equipment, to generators, lighting, signage, and pumps.

With a growing number of severe weather events, power outages are on the rise, notes Kyle Nelson, vertical marketing manager for Generac Power Systems.

Summertime arrives with its notorious slate of challenges, with the Atlantic hurricane season spanning June 1 to November 30, heat waves that tax air-conditioning systems, and the possibility of tornadoes.

Fuel Efficiency and Engine Options

Is your genset making the most efficient use of fuel as it creates power? There’s much to consider, and it’s more than just a choice of diesel or natural gas. How about biodiesel, or gas from landfills, steel mills, coal mines, anaerobic digesters, or waste to syngas? And how about

Technology in Construction: Mining Machine Data

The “academic” definition of data mining is the ability to discover patterns stored within data, using them as a catalyst to enhance business processes by avoiding failure patterns and exploiting success patterns. When applied to mining data from construction machines, this information may (when used to its potential) be employed
