Flexitank transportation is the most common type of liquid tank shipping. These containers can transport a variety of chemicals and liquids, including food-grade liquids. These tanks are typically loaded into 20′ food-grade ISO containers, transported by truck or rail. The sizes of the Flexi-bags range from 16,000 to 26,000 liters. A variety of companies can use them for various purposes, and they are suitable for all types of transport.
A flexitank is placed inside the container, and the liquid to be transported is pumped into it. The flexitank is then sealed with a bulkhead to prevent the tank from moving inside the container. It is also secured with steel bars to prevent movement within the container. This means that there is no chance of contamination during the transit process. The flexitank is an environmentally-friendly and cost-effective solution to liquid shipping, and it is ideal for many different types of industries.
Depending on the nature of the liquid to be transported, a flexitank may have to be heated before discharge. This is especially important if the liquid has sediments that make it difficult to empty. A special flexitank made of three layers of polyethylene is designed to withstand heat and remain stable during transportation. In addition, the valves are located on the lower level of the flexitank, so they are safe from damage or pressure from the container’s door.
The flexitank is a highly efficient way to transport liquids in bulk. A Flexitank can move almost any liquid. They are also a cost-effective alternative to ocean shipping. The sturdiness and efficiency of these containers make them the preferred choice for non-hazardous chemical and food-grade liquid transportation. However, there are some things you need to remember when you’re transporting a bulky substance in a flexible tank.
Professionals should install a flexitank to ensure its safety is at the highest level. It must be installed correctly to avoid any potential accidents. The shipping container must be clean and free of sharp objects. Any rust or lingering odors should be removed from the container before putting the tank into it. A durable material should be used on both walls and floors of the container to avoid the risk of snagging the flexitank.
In the UK, a flexitank is 100% recyclable. It must be approved for rail and sea transport, and the manufacturer must adhere to COA guidelines. Depending on its viscosity and pump capacity, it may take 30 to 60 minutes to empty a flexitank. However, it can be reused many times. The flexitank is also certified for use in hazardous regions. It is a green alternative to traditional tank transportation.
A flexitank is a good option when it comes to fuels and chemicals. Most flexitanks can be recycled, which is an environmentally friendly way to reduce emissions. In addition to that, the tanks are reusable and will reduce the amount of waste generated. In addition to oil and chemical products, flexitanks can transport non-hazardous chemicals, mineral oils, and petroleum products.
The flexitank is suitable for a wide range of liquids. The flexitank is designed to accommodate most liquids, including food, animal and vegetable oils, and juice concentrates. Unlike drums, a flexitank is easier to handle than a standard dry container. Its high-quality material is recyclable. Its lightweight design makes it an ideal choice for transporting dangerous liquids.
Flexitanks are particularly suitable for the transportation of bulk liquids. These tanks are made of food-grade polyethylene and are airtight. Despite their large volume, flexitanks are not very heavy and can be easily handled by a team of people. For example, a flexitank is often used in the pharmaceutical and beauty industries, and the benefits of flexitank transportation are numerous.
The flexitanks are usually loaded into a shipping container. The container must be in good condition before the loading process begins. In addition, it should be easy to move. This means that the tank must be in perfect working order. When a shipment is loaded into a 20ft container, the company will load the drums into the container. It will also be cheaper to transport the flexitanks than a standard drum.
