Features of a Tank Container
A tank container is a large stainless steel pressure vessel held within a 20-foot ISO frame that is used for the transportation and storage of bulk liquids. The 20-foot ISO frame ensures that tank containers can be transported using most modern inter-modal transportation options, including container ships, trucks and rail. The tank container provides a safe, reliable and cost-effective way to transport bulk liquids to most locations around the globe.

The typical Stolt Tank Container conforms to UN T11 specifications for the carriage of hazardous products in bulk. Capacity ranges from 20,000 and 26,000 litres, depending on the cargo, with a working pressure rating of 3-4 Bar. The external appearance of STC’s tanks does not vary significantly, and fittings are generally standardised. However, a variety of features is available to meet each customer’s special product requirements.
The 20-foot ISO frame is constructed to absorb the stresses of a full tank container and to facilitate its handling and stowage by gantry cranes and straddle carriers.
