Cistern barrel, thermos
Do you need to transport milk to a dairy plant without it going sour on the way? Do you need to deliver vegetable oil to a pastry shop? Or perhaps order alcohol for the production of wet wipes, but do not know how? A cistern is the perfect vehicle for transporting any liquid cargo. Including very dangerous ones such as sulfuric acid.
BODY TYPE. So what is a cistern? It is an all-metal stainless steel drum, mounted on an ordinary truck or semi-trailer. Barrels can be single-section or multi-section (up to 6 sections). This makes it possible to transport liquids as part of a combined cargo for different customers. Tanks can be heated, cooled and thermally insulated. Nowadays they often make specialized tanks, designed only for one liquid. For example, even single-type substances, such as petroleum products, cannot be transported in one barrel. For example, crude oil and gasoline. Therefore, now produce a lot of different modifications of tank trucks. In our company will help you choose the right barrel specifically for your bulk cargo. We have great experience in this.
DIMENSIONS. Useful volume of the barrel – from 20 to 46 cubic meters.
Carrying capacity – up to 22 tons.
TYPE OF GROWTH. Cargoes are divided into: food and hazardous, chemical.
The following products are transported in tanks: alcohol, mineral water, food coloring and additives, vegetable oils, juices, dairy products and even live fish. Constantly heated tanks carry chocolate, syrup, glucose, molasses, and animal fats. Food barrels have heating and cooling. They often work like huge thermoses and are good at keeping cargo quality and freshness on the road.
Now for the dangerous liquid cargoes. These are gasoline, bitumen, formalin, brake fluid, etc. The list of hazardous liquid substances is very large. They come in combustible and flammable, poisonous and caustic. It is always important to consider the ability of a hazardous substance to corrode metal. Such cargoes are transported in highly specialized tanks; some of them have heating, detectors for gas, vaporization of hazardous substances, vibration sensors, etc. For example, bitumen or acrylic acid tanks are equipped with such devices.
SAFETY AND COMFORT. Organizing the transportation of liquids is difficult and troublesome. This applies to both food and hazardous liquid cargo. There are a number of strict safety requirements, and they are paramount. For food products, first of all, these are sanitary and hygienic standards accepted in CIS and EU countries. According to the sanitary protocol, the tank must be kept perfectly clean, rinsed and dried after each trip. It is even stricter with hazardous substances. When they are transported, the tank must be perfectly clean and airtight, sealed and specially marked.
ADVANTAGES. Transporting liquids in tankers is more expensive, but by ordering such transport you save on containers. Embezzlement en route is virtually impossible. The loading and unloading process is fully automated and eliminates manual labour.
REFERENCES. Liquid concentrate for juices, syrups and molasses are imported from Moldova to the EU. From Bulgaria and Romania wine is transported to the CIS and Baltic countries. In EU countries, for example, liquid chocolate, coca-cola, beer, wine are transported in tanks from Belgium to the UK. There is almost no use of road transport for international transportation of dangerous liquid cargo.
DOCUMENTS. When transporting bulk food products, a number of additional permits must be issued. The driver and the vehicle must have health certificates. Only drivers with a special license are allowed to transport hazardous substances. Draw up all the documents, including insurance, and set the optimal route, will help our company with a well-coordinated and experienced team of professionals. Let me remind you, our company has extensive experience in transporting such cargo and will always be able to pick up the necessary modification of the tank exactly under your ordered liquid cargo.
