WHAT IS A FLEXITANK
Flexitank is a bulk liquid transport equipment. It is made of several layers of polyethylene, with an outer layer of polypropylene woven, with a volume of liquid transported from 14 to 27 thousand liters. It can be used for the transport of non-hazardous liquids using standard sea containers, trucks or railway cars.
Flexitank is a disposable equipment and offers a dynamic, flexible, safe and efficient solution for all bulk liquid transport requirements.
Flexitanks can be used both for transporting non-hazardous liquids in containers and semi-trailer trucks as well as for storing liquids in quantities of up to 70000 liters.
COMPATIBILITY OF LIQUIDS
Flexitanks can carry liquids of any nature provided they are not classified as dangerous liquids.
Liquid products regularly carried in flexitanks include wine, flat water, juices, vegetable oil, polyol, glycol, food additives, latex, glycerine and so on.
By using flexitanks with heating pipes, viscous liquids, which are in the semi-liquid state at ambient temperature, can be transported.
For the transport of liquids that require controlled temperature, flexitanks specially designed for refrigerated containers are used, this transport method being one of the most commonly used options for transporting unpasteurized orange juice from Brazil to Europe and Asia.
