Isotank Structure

While we have already mentioned the advantage of the use of Isotanks for the transport of hazardous and non-hazardous chemical liquids (you can read more of this here) in terms of costs it is also important to know the manageability that they have.

The isotankeper container was designed to transport all kinds of liquids, the variety of which includes drinking liquids (food category), non-hazardous and hazardous liquids, including corrosive, flammable, toxic and explosive, to name a few. This container eliminates the risks that may arise when transferring liquids from one vessel to another and provides an extremely safe, cost-effective and viable means of transport. Once emptied, the tank is moved to an accredited washing station, thoroughly cleaned and left ready for the next load. Although the tanks have a fairly uniform external appearance, the building materials, internal coating and accessories vary.

Tanks are classified according to the specification of the skeleton and the attachments it has attached. This classification determines the type of product that can be transported.

Structure of an Isotanke

The support frame or structure is intended to hold and protect the tank, as well as facilitating stowage, clamping and handling with the standard isotank material. If handled properly, the frame is able to withstand the stresses to which a fully full tank is subjected.

Tank number: Each container has a unique identification code, composed of 4 letters and 6 digits. The check digit (7th digit) is obtained from a formula involving the tank number.

Temperature indicator: It is placed on the back of the tank and offers an indicative reading of the temperature of the products.

Frames: ISO-sized frames are made of high tensile strength carbon steel and meet the stide of these dimensions.
