ISO Tank Container Specifications

Our fleet consists of IM01 and IM02 ISO tank containers ranging from 17,000 litres – 26,000 litres. All ISO tanks are fitted with steam pipes and insulation for temperature sensitive products and are pressure rated between 3-4 bar with bottom discharge outlets of 3″ BSP thread fitting. A full range of fittings and accessories are also available to ensure we meet your all your requirements.

  • IMO1 ISO Tank Containers: Predominantly used for dangerous goods and chemical grade work, this is the workhorse ISO tank of the industry and sizes range from 17,000 litres to 26,000 litres with heating and insulation built around a 316 stainless steel barrel.
  • IMO2 ISO Tank Containers: Built for less hazardous products such as food grade bulk liquids. Sizes range from 17,000 litres to 26,000 litres with heating and insulation built around a 316 stainless steel barrel.

All our ISO tank containers are built with a standard 20 foot ISO frame, constructed to absorb the stress of a full ISO tank. This ensures our ISO tanks can be handled by gantry crane straddles and side loader fork lifts. The ISO tanks are also constructed with low tare weights in mind so your total load can be maximised.

By choosing one of our tank containers you know you are in safe hands. All ISO tanks meet strict regulations (International Maritime Dangerous Goods Code) for safe transport by rail, road and sea.

Safety

ISO tanks are the safest, most efficient, economical and environmentally friendly way for the transportation of bulk liquids both hazardous and non-hazardous products.

The high standards of our ISO tanks come as a result of maintenance undertaken in accordance with the international standards.
