This 40’ tank container, has dimensions and valve terminations identical to a standard tank truck. It is suitable and approved for a wide range of chemical and liquid cargoes. The standard configuration comes fitted with ground level actuated valves, dual steam heating facilities – enabling glycol heating during transport and steam heating at destination.
