What is an IMO TANK CONTAINER?
An IMO TANK CONTAINER is primarily a frame mounted pressure vessel mounted. The frame dimensions comply with the recommendations of the International Standards Organization (ISO). The ISO tank container is designed and constructed in accordance with international codes for the worldwide carriage of bulk liquids on land, rail and water.
IMO tank containers are the intermodal tank containers which are containers used for shipping internationally various bulk liquids and gases and which you can used for transportation on land, sea or rail both domestically and internationally for safe and smooth transportation with low cost.
Comparison of IMO tank containers with Drums: As compared to transportation of liquids and gases in drums, the transportation in IMO tank containers are easier, less costly and safe and smooth in all means i.e. Land, sea or Rail. Other advantages are easier loading / unloading, low risk of contamination and spillage and easy to monitor.
Construction details of IMO Tank Containers: IMO tank container consists of two main parts: the outer structural frame and the inner pressure vessel made of steel to hold the liquid or gas. The frame design must meet strict standards, including stacking, longitudinal and lateral inertia. This storage tank also has several accessories like:
Walkway on top of the tank container: For easy access to various valves
Ladder at the rear of the container: For easy access to various valves
Dip stick to measure liquid level with calibration chart: For measurement of liquid volume in liters
Document-tube: The document-tube is water tight and secured area to avoid document theft during transit
Label holder: The label holder is secured to the tank and displays the safety labels required to identify the tank contents.
Identification plate: The tank container has an identification plate or certificate plate, with general information on technicalities and origin of the tank.
Safety fittings like Pressure relief valve: To release excessive pressure in case of pressurised containers
Temperature Gauge: To monitor temperature of liquid / gas being transported
Pressure Gauge: To monitor Pressure of liquid / gas being transported
Outlet valve and hoses
USES OF IMO Tank Containers:
IMO Tank Containers are used in industries like
- Food industry
- Oil and gas industry
Types OF IMO Tank Containers:
- IMO 5 tank containers: Mainly for gases like LPG, CO2, Ammonia, VCM, Propane, Butane, Ethylene oxide etc
- IMO 7 tank containers: Mainly for Cryogenic liquids like Liquid Oxygen, Liquid Nitrogen, Liquid Argon, LNG
IMO Tank Container is used for transporting gasoline, diesel oil, all kinds of chemical liquids, LPG, LNP, cement, bitumen, and other powdery and granulated materials, etc. The ISO tank container has all advantages of the containerized transportation. It is ideal equipment for the transportation of terrified products. As regard to the transportation of terrified products and the liquefied gas, this tank container has following advantages when compared with the traditional railroad tanker and the barreled transportation. It is manufactured with advanced technology and Production skills. It possesses advantages of reasonable structure, reliable performance, artistic contour, easy operation and so on.
Advantages OF IMO Tank Containers:
1. The ready use of conventional container handling equipment already in place for safe and reliable.
2. Transport among road, railroad, Inland River, ocean, which may greatly reduce the loading and unloading time at the station wharf. It holds the location to be small.
3. It can also server as vessel in the situation of Production or using.
4. The tank container can use tank or truck separately, the enterprise does not need to have oneself vehicle at the same time, or they may realize a vehicle flexible.
5. It can save packing costs in barreled products.
6. Faster transfer at ports and terminals
7. Convenient storage option at destination
8. Secondary packaging costs eliminated
9. Tank containers have the added benefit of stainless-steel cleanliness and strength, pressurization and integral heating systems.
10. Tank containers can carry a far greater quantity of liquid for the equivalent shipping space and cost compared to an ISO container filled with drums.
- Volume: 10ft, 20ft, 30ft, 40ft
- Effective capacity: 10M3-51M3
- Working Pressure: 0.7Mpa~3.44Mpa
- Design Code: ASME, AD MERKBALTTER, PD 5500, CODAP 2000 AND OTHERS
Why IMO Tank Container was developed?
The IMO Tank container was developed for carriage of all types of liquids ranging from, not limited to, portable, non-hazardous, flammables, and explosives. This type of container eliminates risk in transferring liquid form one vessel to another and provide for extremely safe, secure, cost effective and viable mode of transportation. Once the tank container has discharged, it is taken to recognized cleaning station thoroughly for that product and then ready for its next load.
