Reefer Tank

Flexible Reefer Transport Tank

The Flexible Reefer Transport Tank is designed to help transport bulk liquids that needs to be stored in specific temperatures. Unlike the flexitank, these collapsible reefer tanks are self-supporting and do not require the use of a bulkhead container.

During the construction of these tanks, specific coated fabrics are used to help ensure the tank is self-supporting and has minimal contact with refrigerated container. This design has expanded the types of the liquids that can be stored in the tank to include several new juices, concentrates, and fortified wines.

The reefer tank focuses on providing a bulk liquid transportation tank that is cheaper and more effective. As mentioned before, these tanks are designed specifically for use in temperature sensitive conditions. The reefer storage tank is often used as an alternative to IBC drums and refrigerated tank containers.

Reefer Tank Options

Flexible tanks for refrigerated containers are designed as a self-supporting tank and typically do not require the use of a bulkhead. This has allowed for increased air movement around the tank and underneath the unit. Lining materials are required and can usually be obtained in local areas.

Shipping Two Liquids in One Container

While a majority of our reefer transportation tanks fit in refrigerated box containers without the use of bulkhead, some choose to ship two of these tanks in a standard 20 ft. container with a bulkhead in order to transport two liquids at once. This type of transport is limited to 10,000 liter tanks and offers huge savings in transportation costs.

See How The Reefer Tank has been Used:

reefer tank in containerFlexible Tanks in 20 ft. Reefer Box Containers: The smallest reefer transport tank is designed to fit in a 20 foot refrigerated container. These tanks are self-supporting and do not require the use of a bulkhead. Linings are required to help ensure a safe transportation. Capacity for these tanks is limited to 16,000 liters.

Flexible Tanks in 40 ft. Reefer Box Containers: Larger tanks are made for use in 40 foot refrigerated containers. Like the reefer tank for 20 foot containers, these units require lining material for the containers but do not need the support of a bulkhead. Capacities for these containers is limited to 25,000 liters.

bulkhead for flexitankFlexible Reefer Storage Tank in 20 ft. Standard Container: Reefer tanks are also made for use in a standard 20 foot container. This design is intended to help with versatility and can ship up to 18,000 liters without a bulk head.

The main advantage to this type of shipping is that the shipper can use this container with two 10,000 liter tanks. Each tank can store a different liquid allowing you to move two liquids in the same container. This type of transportation does, however, require the use of a bulkhead.
