The Atkinson TankTop, Top Off Take Valve

Draw oil from your tank safely with the new Atkinson Tanktop, Top Offtake System.

Leading the way into the world of Top Offtake, the Atkinson Tanktop is the WORLDS FIRST DRAW Top Offtake device with all of the necessary features and functions to responsibly draw oil from the top of a tank. EC Reg. Des. No: 000472493-0001.

Steel and Plastic tank versions now available

New Steel Tank version for Rigid Pipe – This unit comes with a 8mm connection and an 8mm-10mm compression fitting to enable the installer to connect a 10mm copper pipe as the suction tube.  This will be of particular benefit in tanks with cross beam support struts that a flexible tube could get caught on.  This variation also comes with self drilling bolts which can be used with steel tanks.  Note when fitting a rigid suction pipe the draw will be near the bottom of the tank, this means more likelihood of drawing debris from the bottom of the tank.  The Tanktop is fitted with a filter but we recommend a small bend is put in at the bottom of the rigid pipe and it is run to a determined point above the bottom of the fuel tank to help avoid this.

This innovative product has all the components required for drawing fuel oil from the top of the storage tank in one unit (no joints to leak oil out or air in). It incorporates all of the following into one neat, easy to install, unit:

  • Floating Suction Head
  • Floating Suction Tube (1.6M)
  • Non Return Valve
  • 50 Micron Filter
  • Diaphragm Anti-siphon Valve
  • Anti-spill Valve
  • Tank Inlet Fitting 1″ BSPM
  • Purging / Priming Button
  • Surface Gasket
  • Totally Waterproof

With Top Offtake it is imperative that joints are well made so with only one joint to make, the Atkinson Tanktop is the answer to an Engineer’s dream.

This product draws on over 40 years experience of manufacturing products for the oil heating market. The product incorporates an anti-siphon valve to prevent fuel siphoning from the tank in the event the oil line is broken thus avoiding environmental pollution (incurring heavy fines and clean-up costs).

Designed for the 21st century, where the demand is for a system that avoids breaching the bund on an oil storage tank and thus minimising the risk of environmental pollution, as supported by the Environment Agencies and OFTEC.

Now with 10mm push-fit hydraulic connector for simple fitting (blue connector shown in photograph) inside the restrictive space of the bund – simply push the 10mm oil pipe into place. No screwing and making the joint air-tight required whatsoever.

Important Note: The pressure is pre-set in the factory at a 1.5m negative head and this is not adjustable by the user (suitable for all known boilers on the market).  If you require this to be pre-set to any other pressure between 0-5.5m then you will need to let us know at the time of your order and we will pre-set this for you before dispatch.

TIP – It is also recommended you have a Deaeratorin your oil line.
