Features of the selection and application of tank containers

Sea tank containers are easily recognized by their design features. In most cases, they are a massive tank, which is in a metal frame to prevent damage during transportation, storage, unloading, etc.

Tank modules are used to move, transport liquid and gaseous substances that need to be moved within a certain temperature range. Design features make it possible to move storage facilities not only by sea. They can travel by air or by road or rail.

The classic container consists of:

  • Rigid metal frame of the tank;
  • Strong steel frame that fixes the tank and protects it from various damage during transportation;
  • Drain and filler system;
  • Accessories for maintenance and inspection of tanks: stairs, lifts, platforms, handrails, etc.

Fasteners are located directly on the base of the container, in most cases they have a welded type of connection. Among the variety of shapes and sizes, the most popular are the 20 'and 40' tanks. The mass is 2.2 and 3.6 tons, respectively. The internal volume of such a container is 33 cubic meters and 67 cubic meters, respectively.

Most often, such containers are used to transport hazardous chemical, toxic, flammable elements that need reliable protection during transportation. The module itself must be made exclusively of steel capable of withstanding the internal pressure of the contents. For acidic materials, AISI 304 steel is used, it has increased resistance to destructive effects due to special additives, from the outside each tank is covered with an anti-corrosion coating.

Features of purchase / lease
