About Brown Davis Fuel Tanks
Fuel Tank Construction Material
All Brown Davis long range and auxiliary fuel tanks are constructed from high grade 2mm 14 gauge – Aluminum coated cold rolled steel, to ensure maximum strength and durability. This gauge of steel is sufficiently resistant to damage by impact, and therefore additional tank guards are not necessary (most standard tanks are less than 2mm in material thickness). This material is specifically imported by Brown Davis based on critical specifications. Unlike aluminum, steel is not prone to fatigue from vibration and twisting as seen in off road conditions. This fatigue resistance far outweighs any weight advantage aluminum may offer. However, the aluminum coating on the specific steel used by Brown Davis, offer’s the strength of steel with the anti corrosion properties of aluminium.
When dealing with fuel tanks, safety is of the utmost priority. Brown Davis goes to extraordinary lengths to ensure that the structural rigidity, and production quality of each tank not only meets, but surpasses all current regulations surrounding fuel tanks and impact protection.
A critical aspect of design is to ensure the tank is structurally strong enough to withstand large impact forces. With a current ADR fuel tank test license, Brown Davis is able to carry out specific, yet brutal testing of new tank designs. Current test procedures include a drop test with a fully laden tank from a specified height of 9m (30ft). During this test the tank must not show any signs of splitting or potential hazard upon impact. With such testing and data acquisition, each new tank design incorporates vast experience in structural design knowledge to ensure designs not only to exceed civilian vehicle safety standards, but those of many worldwide armed forces currently using Brown Davis tanks out in the battle field.
As another critical stage of the fuel tank manufacturing process, ensuring that each tank is perfectly sealed and leak free is paramount. As with any form of welding, there is a chance of porosity in a weld seam, which even though mostly invisible to the naked eye, can leak and pose a potential safety hazard. It is for this reason that Brown Davis incorporate several leak tests in order to ensure each tank is 100% leak free prior to leaving the Brown Davis facility.
With the tank sealed and pressurized to a set level, a preliminary test is carried out as an early leak detection measure on all weld seams. This involves painting the seams with a soap based mixture which reveals bubbles at leak locations. Upon completion of this test, the tank is then fully submerged in a testing tank, and again under a set pressure level, will indicate even the most minute of air leaks via bubbles in the water.
Warranty and Surport
For total peace of mind Brown Davis offers a 3 year warranty on all its fuel tanks. With an Australia wide network built over the 30+ years in the industry, you can go away on your longest journey knowing you will have full support with any issues.
