Bulk fuel test unit (BFTU)
Our Bulk Fuel Test Unit (BFTU) is available for hire by customers anywhere in the UK. The BFTU is used to test/verify the accuracy of bulk fuel road tankers often used to deliver large quantities of heating oil to domestic and commercial premises. The BFTU consists of a calibrated reference meter mounted within and enclosed trailer. The trailer is towed behind our Land Rover.
The unit is towed to site and operated by an officer from Cheshire West and Chester. The driver/operator carries all relevant documentation including risk assessment and calibration certificates.
