The safe transport of non-hazardous liquids and dry cargo is all attributed to Flexitank. Flexitanks serve the needs of customers by ensuring a secure transfer of liquids in bulks around the globe. These flexible tanks are much lighter and more efficient as compared to other storage containers. They have a fair advantage of convenient storage setup and rustproof material. Not only that, the liquids stored in Flexitanks can easily be discharged without the possibility of wastage. The material of the tank does not contain any organic proportions in order to keep the liquids safe from any reaction. Since the whole tank is made of flexible material; it can be easily disposed of after transportation of liquid bulks.
Storage Capacity and Usage
Flexitank container has different sizes of storage area. It majorly depends on the type of liquid which is required to be transported through tanks. The storage area of a Flexitank is the space available inside the flexible walls of the storage tank. If the liquid is to be transported through the sea, the size of the storage container used standardly is 20ft high. Usually, liquids such as fuels and pharmaceutical substances are transported by means of the sea. The Flexitank for sea transportation contains a storage capacity of more than 20,000 liters of liquid bulk. However, the capacity for different Flexitanks varies as per required. The tanks with most common fluid capacities include 16,000 liters to 24,000 liters of bulk storage. Usually, oils are transported through Flexitanks. Other liquids include drinking water, malt extracts, detergents etc.
The Flexitanks can be used in several ways. Several liquids or dry cargos are transported by road as well. Flexitanks can be loaded on various transport vehicles based upon manufacturer’s approval. Flexitanks are not specified for a certain method of usage or transport. If the bulk of a certain liquid is to be shipped through the sea, then the installation process takes place at container depots. On the other hand, if the bulk is required to be transported by road, then the Flexitanks are installed over a specific transport vehicle in warehouses or industries where the liquids are produced.
Usually, the loading system of a tank is fitted to the bottom. There is a storage valve present in the Flexitank. The valve enables the inward and outward flow of liquids within the container. Once the liquid is loaded inside the tank, the door of the container is closed after tightening the valve. It is quite important to check the doors of the containers once the liquid is stored in the Flexitank inside the container. The loaded bulks are transported safely without the possibility of leakage inside the container. However, it is also very important to make sure that none of the precautions indicated by manufacturing company is violated.
Flexitanks are the most convenient fluid transporting containers used globally. These wonderful flexible tanks allow the transportation of hundreds of kinds of liquids in bulks in the easiest way possible.
