New additions to the Eurotainer fleet: Specialized tank containers capable of maintaining products with a maximum temperature of 220 degrees C!
These innovative containers are stainless steel construction, 24000 liter capacity tanks built with several components that have delivered the ability to maintain this high heat. They include an electric heat traced system for the barrel and bottom valve, 100 mm of multi-layer insulation and 8 to 10 mm of GRP cladding. The GRP cladding is a distinctive black color to match the loaded product color. Additional components include full coverage walkways, ladders on both ends of the tank, high capacity digital thermometer, a thermowell to measure the product temperature in the middle of the tank, top valve and siphon tube and collapsible handrails.
These custom designed and built tank containers are fitted with Trans Heat SMHI cables for electrical heating to maintain temperatures between 180 and 220 C, as requested by our client. These low power density on cables (35W/m) have a significant advantage in that the heat is very well distributed on the surface, preventing overheating of the product. The containers will be used in road and rail transport in far northern Europe where extremely cold temperatures are common.
Eurotainer worked with our client, tank manufacturing partner and an experienced heating system provider to design, engineer and build a tank container to meet the extreme requirements of the product to be transported and the environment where it will operate. The product stored in the tank will be utilized in the production of aluminum and transform the storage and transport of raw materials for aluminum manufacturing.
Please contact your local Eurotainer representative for information on this tank container, its specifications and availability.
