CIM-TEK Tank Dryer - Check for water in your tank!

Fuel Tank Shop CIM-TEK Tank Dryer - Check for water in your tank!

Product Description

Absorbs water out of Fuel, Diesel, Petrol, Bio-Diesel, Fuel Oil. The Cim-Tek Tank dryer is a water filtration device which sits at the bottom of your tank removing any water. Manufactured from a super-absorbent polymer, the device rests on the base of the tank and is attached to the fill area via the attached cord and clip.

How Tank Dryer works
Simply lower Tank Dryer through the fill point or inspection chamber of your fuel tank, letting it sink into place at the bottom of the tank and secure using the attached cord. When the Tank Dryer becomes saturated it begins to swell and when fully swollen, the Tank Dryer should be removed and discarded responsibly. It is recommended that each Tank Dryer should be inspected weekly and replaced at least every three months.

Features and Benefits:

  • Absorbs 350ml of water
  • 600mm long, 40mm diameter (when full)
  • Versatile - Fits in most 2' fill points on both steel and plastic storage tanks
  • Highly Absorbent - Reduces the risk of contaminated fuel and 'Bug' formation that can cause vehicle and machine damage
  • Cord attached - Very quick and easy to use
  • As a passive system, the Tank Dryer does not interfere with flow rates, making it ideal for use with tanks connected to fuel delivery systems
  • Ideal for preventative maintenance programmes

Bio Diesel Bugs
Water can enter your tank and contaminate the fuel stored inside. Due to it's density water sinks to the bottom and is a fundamental cause of bacteria growth when in contact with new Bio Diesels. Commonly called 'Bugs in Fuel', if not removed these 'Bugs' reproduce and create a Bio Film which contaminates the inside of your tank. Their waste produces more water and a sludge that is the main cause of machinery damage and failure leading to costly downtime and loss of productivity. Using Tank Dyer can limit the risk as its clever design means that it attracts water and absorbs it.

Returns Information

Customers may return items within 14 calendar days (as per our Terms & Conditions) - refer to 4.6 & 4.7. **

Please be aware that returning a tank can be complicated and expensive so please check that you are ordering the correct item (we suggest checking the dimensions very carefully).

Delivery Information


The delivery of a tank can be confusing as each manufacturer offers a slightly different service and lead time. Please refer to our Delivery Information page.  Standard tank deliveries are "kerbside" which means the tank will be delivered to the kerb only and not positioned further. Should you have specific delivery requirements or restrictions, please contact us to discuss.


Most accessories will be delivered within 1-3 working days. If you require them quicker, we can on occasions offer a next day service (please contact us to discuss). If the item(s) are out of stock we will advise you of the expected lead time and you will of course have the opportunity to cancel with a full refund.
