Along with other fiberglass containers, our company produces tank trailers and semitrailers for various chemically aggressive liquid cargo. The main purpose of such tanks, regardless of design, is the transportation of chemicals, oil products and other liquids.
Unlike transport containers intended for transportation on a truck chassis (which do not have their own chassis), trailers and tank semi-trailers are more widely used due to the possibility of quick disconnection from the tractor. While the tank is being drained, filled or serviced, the tractor can do other work.
The difference between the design of trailers and semi-trailers tanks is determined by the corresponding method of attachment to the tractor. The configuration of the tank in each case ensures stability and secure positioning on the trailer / semi-trailer chassis.
Tank trailers have their own independent truck chassis and can move independently under the influence of mechanical force on them. The tank semitrailer is supported on the tractor by means of a special device called a “saddle”.
Thus, most truck tractors are suitable for moving a tank trailer, and only truck tractors for a semi-trailer. If a company uses a fleet of tractors with a universal coupling device ("hitch"), then the choice in favor of a tank trailer is obvious. At the same time, the coupling between the tractor and the trailer is less rigid than with the semitrailer.
A tractor with a tank semi-trailer has great maneuverability and stability on the road, while driving a tank trailer requires more attention and caution when driving, especially on the highway.
The production of Helyx chemistry composite tanks for tank containers is carried out on a winding line by means of continuous winding of fiberglass with the addition of binder resins and quartz sand. To increase the strength characteristics, the container material is reinforced with glass threads.
The tank of a tank container, equipped with the necessary technological openings, hatches, valves with reliable shut-off valves, is placed inside a metal frame with the dimensions of a standard ISO container. Frames must have lower and upper corner fittings, from additional structures they can be equipped with service platforms and ladders.
