What is an ISO Tank?

An ISO tank container is a standardized shipping container designed specifically for the transportation of bulk liquids, chemicals, powders, and gases.

Constructed according to International Organization for Standardization (ISO) specifications, made from materials such as stainless steel.

ISO tank containers feature a protective outer shell to ensure the safe and secure transportation of their contents.

They are equipped with standardized fittings and valves for easy loading, unloading, and handling.

These containers are widely used in various industries due to their versatility, efficiency, and compatibility with different modes of transportation, including ships, trains, and trucks.

How do ISO tanks work?

Filling an ISO tank container involves a series of steps to ensure the safe and efficient transportation of bulk liquids, chemicals, or gases. Initially, the container undergoes thorough inspection and cleaning to prevent contamination and ensure compatibility with the intended cargo.

Once deemed suitable, the container is positioned securely for filling, typically using specialized equipment such as pumps or hoses. The cargo is carefully transferred into the container, with precise monitoring to prevent overfilling and maintain proper handling procedures.

Throughout the filling process, valves and fittings on the container are utilized to control the flow of the cargo and maintain safety standards. Upon completion, the container is sealed to prevent leakage during transport. This meticulous process ensures that ISO tank containers are filled efficiently and securely.
