A Bowser is a generic name for a tanker of various kinds.
A diesel bowser is the ideal solution for construction, civil engineering, agricultural and mining companies looking to re-fuel vehicles and machinery on site safely and efficiently.
Ideal for refueling Plant & Machinery in the Agricultural, Construction, Marine, Ground care and Civil Engineering industries.
Bowser also describes a Fuel Tanker used to deliver fuel to Aircraft at Airports or Airfields. The term also describes refueling boats that supply seaplanes, army fuel tankers used for combat resupply, and vehicles that fill heavy construction equipment such as Hydraulic Excavators and Bulldozers. Even aircraft have been described as "flying fuel bowsers" when configured to ferry fuel to support a forward operation.
The related verb, "bowsing", is used in the fuel distribution industry to refer to the practice of customers of one fuel distributor to be able to collect fuel from a depot (including retail stations) of a second fuel distributor, at the prices of the first distributor. As such, it is a method of mutual distribution, improving fuel access for customers while reducing the main costs of each distributor. Being a commercial service, it normally applies to DERV (road vehicle Diesel fuel) rather than petrol.
Mobile water tanks deployed to distribute fresh water in emergency situations where the normal system of piped distribution has broken down or is insufficient.
The driving force behind a successful agricultural project is the use of water tankers and bowsers for fast and consistent water distribution. Farmers utilize every way possible to get water to their crops when the need arises. The convenient mobility of the tankers and their smaller counterpart, the bowser, help to transport small, medium and large amounts of fresh, clean water to any area. From large units designed to move water on the highway to smaller tractordrawn watering bowsers that distribute water to large areas in a short time. Without these lifebringing resources farmers would be hard-pressed to provide a consistent supply of water to their crops.
They come in many shapes and sizes to fit any agricultural need. A large capacity water tanker is steel-hulled container that has been shaped on a steel sheet bending machine to the optimum angle. All tankers at this size have baffles inside to compartmentalize the water and prevent dangerous shifts in weight. The steel container sits atop a trailer that is oftentimes equipped for highway travel and is pulled by a trailer (rig.) In large agricultural operations, a tractor-drawn tanker could be used to safely and easily transport water where the need exists. Manufacturers design 10,000 litre lorry tankers in which the rear chassis of the truck is designed to accommodate the tanker. These become one unit during installation, with easy access points on the tops and sides for access to the water or to refill the container. For any large operation demanding a significant and mobile access to water suppliers, tankers provide that assurance.
There are many excellent bowsers on the market that provide a full spectrum of benefits for agricultural companies. Some are smaller than tankers but drawn the same and also highway ready. Multi-purpose bowsers help to get water to those hard to reach locations, between rows of planted crops or through groves of trees. Others can be hitched to a truck or tractor and pulled behind to transport or water crops. With side spray nozzles and the pressure from a pump, farmers can maneuver the bowser for irrigation or watering purposes.
Bowsers typically range in size from 1000-4000 litres/maximum capacity and feature tough, durable construction that meets or exceeds international standards of production. Along with the water tanker or bowser is a certificate of compliance that authenticates the thorough and rigid adherence to quality standards during every phase of development and production.
All agricultural operations require a supply of water to be regularly and consistently applied to the crops. For optimized growth, many farmers regulate and schedule watering for the time of year. Tankers provide a way for the farmer to meet their goal by delivering the water where it needs to be. Businesses that use a water tower will require a tanker for refilling; otherwise the tanker can be used to supply all of the various bowsers or watering tanks on the property.
The presence of a pump forces the water out faster allowing the operator to distribute the water over larger areas. This addition is extremely helpful when performing dust management over a dry field after a harvest. The high powered jets provide more reach for the user while maximizing the coverage area.
The availability of a wide variety of water storage and distribution options makes finding the right size tanker for the job easy. For large companies the use of a commercial sized steel-hulled tanker is perfect for their increased production needs. Other, smaller operations utilize various versions of a tanker or bowser to easily transport water to the various areas of the business. For agricultural operations with frequent watering needs, the drawn bowser with side spray nozzles is the perfect tool. Regardless of the size of the business or their specific needs, water tankers provide a valuable service that many owners find indispensable.
