Pumps for a range of fluid & chemicals
We offer a range of pumps for the transfer of chemicals. Very specific construction materials and seal types are required when for use with chemicals so we recommend that before purchasing material compatibility is checked with the chemical in question that is being dispensed.
Water Transfer Pumps
Submersible, manual, and engine driven water pumps
Depending upon the application at hand, you can select from submersible pumps, engine-driven water pumps, and manual hand pumps. Within the range is a trash pump for pumping away dirty water that may contain solids popular within heavy-duty, construction environments, and an emergency water pump for moving floodwater away in domestic applications.
Power take off pumps for tractors
A PTO pump, otherwise known as a power take off pump, is commonly utilised for agricultural use as it is powered by the tractor’s PTO shaft. There are two main options of PTO pumps designed for two alternative applications; PTO water pumps or PTO pressure washers for cleaning down agricultural machinery after use, and tractor PTO air compressors for inflating agricultural machinery tyres.
Fuel Management Systems
Piusi B.SMART Cloud Fuel Management
B.SMART is the first cloud-based fuel management system from Piusi, providing the fleet manager with remote and real-time data on their fuel use. It works by using a licensed app on the driver’s iOS or Android mobile device to activate the dispensing via Bluetooth, and its network to send the data to the cloud once the transaction is complete.
This enables the real-time monitoring of multiple dispensers across unlimited geographical sites through a single user-friendly online web portal via the PC, tablet, or smartphone wherever you are, saving the need to compile separate reports or visit all of the sites.

We also offer a system that goes into greater detail and can help you to analyse your data with ease combined with the Self Service Desk Software. This offers an efficient way for you to monitor and compile your data.
Fuel Flow Meters
Diesel Flow Meters
Diesel flow meters are often utilized within fuel transfer pump installations to count the amount of diesel that has been dispensed into the vehicle when refueling. The products in the diesel flow meter range from Italian manufacturer Piusi are known for their accurate results when used within a non-resale, fuel transfer environment. When making your purchase decision, it is important to consider the flow rate capacity you require the meter to deal with, and the display type of the flow meter to ensure that it best suits your application.
Oil Flow Meters
Accurate lubrication and engine oil flowmeters
Designed to accurately measure the quantity of lubrication and engine oil that is being dispensed in a particular transaction, the Piusi range of oil flow meters are a great addition to any garage or workshop. Options for these oil meters include digital or mechanical displays, differing flow rate capacities, and the ability to install the oil flow meter onto an oil dispensing nozzle for an instant quantity reading. Before making your decisions as to which oil flow meter to purchase, be sure to look at the oil viscosity compatibility with your known fluid.
Adblue™ Flow Meters
AdBlue™ flow meter features a digital display for you to clearly and accurately read the amount of fluid that has been transferred in that particular transaction. This flow meter is the model used on all of our AdBlue™ pumping kits that include metering as an option.
Petrol Flow Meters
Equipment used within a flammable environment requires special approval in order to be deemed safe for such an application. With petrol having a higher flash point than diesel, petrol flow meters need to be ATEX certified, which our range if Piusi meters are. As well as petrol, this range of ATEX-approved flow meters can also be used to measure how much kerosene or diesel has been dispensed in an individual transaction when in a zone one environment.
Heating Oil Meters
Domestic oil meters for heating oil tanks
Domestic heating oil meters are commonly installed in oil-fired heating systems as a way to monitor how much fuel oil/kerosene has been used. A heating oil meter is able to accurately measure even the smallest quantity of dispensed oil thanks to its extremely low flow rate capacity in comparison to a standard oil meter. The benefit of all of these heating oil meters is that the amount of oil used can be clearly read off the display, making them easy to use.
Water Flow Meters
Quality range of water meters
Fuel Delivery & Suction Hoses
Diesel Delivery Hoses
Diesel Hose and Nozzle Kits
Ready to fit fuel hose and nozzle kits
Diesel & AdBlue Gravity Hose Kits
Some fuel storage tanks are installed at height in order to run off a gravity feed refuelling system, a cost effective alternative to relying on a pump to transfer the fuel. Gravity fed fuel tanks refuel vehicles using a gravity hose kit, which is essentially a locking valve to stop/start the flow of diesel, the hose itself and a nozzle.
Adblue™ Delivery Hoses
Depending upon the individual installation, we offer a selection of different AdBlue delivery hose options. It is vital that only hose designed for use with AdBlue (or DEF as it is known in the US) is used with the fluid to prevent contamination. Available is AdBlue hose for use with electric pumps, models for use with manual pumps, as well as the cost-effective option of an AdBlue gravity hose kit for dispensing from a gravity-fed tank or IBC.
Grease/Lube Oil Delivery Hoses
Diesel / Oil Suction Hoses
Adblue™ Suction Hoses
Heating Oil Lines
We provide a selection of flexible oil lines for use in domestic heating applications. Included in the range are long life thermoplastic versions as well as braided models.
Fuel Hose Reels
Retractable fuel hose reels complete with hose or bare
Storage tank installations that have a large length of delivery hose connected often have a fuel hose reel fitted for easy, convenient and neat storage of the hose. They are primarily used where the tank is situated away from the dispensing point, to ensure that the hose isn’t left dragging along the floor when the dispensing of the diesel, oil or AdBlue is complete. Our fuel hoses reels are spring rewind, meaning that they automatically retract rather than having to be wound back up after use.

Fuel Nozzles & Grease Guns
Gravity and fuel pump nozzles for dispensing
Our extensive fuel nozzle range provides solutions for the dispensing of diesel, petrol, oil, AdBlue™ and grease. When selecting a fuel dispensing nozzle you need to decide whether you require an automatic or manual model. An automatic fuel pump nozzle shuts off when the vehicle being refuelled becomes full, preventing further fuel from being dispensed and an overfill from occurring. Whereas a manual refuelling nozzle is a cheaper solution when the user is not too concerned with automatic shut off, and is popular within the agricultural and plant market.
Also included in our range are high flow fuel nozzles specially designed for refuelling larger vehicles and machinery and models with in built flow meters for identifying the amount of fluid dispensed. It should also be noted that whilst some fuel dispensing nozzles work on both gravity and pump installations, there are specially identified fuel pump nozzles and gravity fed nozzles.

Fuel Tank Alarms & Overfill Prevention
Tank level alarms, overfill prevention devices and level alerters
Fuel tank alarms and overfill prevention devices are common pieces of equipment required on most fuel storage tanks. Tank level alarms provide the user with three function; to alert them of a low level, overfill or bund situation. We have a variety of models available depending upon the functionality that is required. An overfill prevention valve ensures that a tank cannot be overfilled, as when the fuel level reaches a certain point, no more can be added.
Fuel Tank Gauges
Tank level indicators & fuel tank level gauges
Centre Tank Services are a leading supplier of drum and fuel tank gauges. Designed to visually display the contents of a tank, a fuel tank level gauge is a must have piece of equipment on a storage tank to provide the owner with information on how much fuel is left in their tank, and consequently when they need to order more. Generally speaking, fuel tank gauges provide a simple and easy visual indication on when the fuel is running low, however they are often combined with a fuel tank alarm that will let off a sounder when a pre-set low level is hit.
Within our range are tank level indicators designed for both commercial diesel and domestic heating oil tank gauge applications. For easy reference, our fuel tank level gauges are categorised by their methods of measuring the tank’s contents into float gauges, hydrostatic gauges, electronic gauges and sight gauges. Popular models include the Piusi Ocio and Unitel fuel tank gauge for commercial use, and the Apollo tank level gauge for domestic oil tank owners.
Fuel Tank Filters & De-Aerators
Fuel storage tank filters for removing impurities
The cleanliness of fuel in your storage tank is becoming increasingly problematic, both in regards to the presence of particles and water. Contaminated fuel can have disastrous consequences, with costly downtime and maintenance of vehicles being refuelled with dirty fuel. Some vehicle manufacturers are now even voiding warranties should the dispensing system not have a fuel tank filter installed
