Stainless steel enclosures specified for specialist vehicles

Eldon has supplied stainless steel enclosures to Fuller Tankers for protecting electrical components mounted on the exterior of the vehicles.

Founded in 1947, Fuller Tankers manufactures innovative vacuum tankers, jetting equipment and recycling equipment for local authorities and water authorities throughout the UK, Ireland, Europe and the Far East. The company's vehicles require stainless steel enclosures to protect electrical and electronic equipment from the extreme conditions in whcih the vehicles operate. Fuller Tankers' main products are the Jet Vac3, sludge tankers and combination unit gully cleaners, but the company has also built groundbreaking equipment including the Channel Tunnel cleaning machine and high-pressure runway washers.

In 2012 Fuller Tankers became the first tanker manufacturer in the UK to achieve European Whole Vehicle Type Approval (ECWVTA) with the Fuller Recycler - based on a Volvo FM 6 x 2 Chassis Cab. Available as either 18-tonne or 26-32-tonne versions, both trucks use the latest technology that enables them to filter and recycle the dirty water collected from the drain for re-use in the jetting system.

Fuller Tanker prides itself on delivering the best tankers with quality and innovation second to none, backed by its over 50 years' expertise in building vehicles acclaimed for their long life and optimum reliability.

High-quality enclosures

Nathan Jones, managing director of Fuller Tankers, states: "We are bespoke body-builders and our customers are generally blue-chip buyers such as councils, water authorities and private contractors, which means we put high emphasis on the quality of materials supplied to us." He also said the company began working with Eldon in 2002 due to the fast-growing introduction of electrical components to drive parts previously powered mechanically.

Jones continues: "We first bought wall-mounted mild steel enclosures from Eldon, but changed within a couple of years to stainless steel to avoid corrosion problems as the externally mounted boxes are very exposed to harsh conditions."

Reasons for Fuller Tankers purchasing from Eldon include cost, quality and a personal relationship, as Jones explains: "The quality of Eldon's stainless steel enclosures is very good and it is clear that Eldon keeps up to speed in new technologies. We always feel Eldon will step up to the mark if we need help, which is a good reflection of the personal relationship they have developed with us."

He also says that a big advantage of working with Eldon is been its ISO 9001:2008 quality certification and other certificates, which is something Fuller Tankers' customers now expect from all its suppliers. "Having full approval documentation for all the parts of the Fuller Recycler was the reason we were successful in gaining ECWVTA accreditation," Jones concludes.
