Tailor-made solutions for end-to-end success
Stolt Tank Containers is here to help solve every challenge related to shipping bulk liquids. Even before your cargo begins its journey.
Bridging the gapA recent example of this is a project we undertook for a client who needed a way of loading highly sensitive raw materials into ISO tank containers for transport. They needed a temporary solution at their site, prior to their plant undergoing a significant upgrade.
Our expert team achieved this by designing and building a custom-made load rack with a direct connection between the discharge facility and the to-be-loaded ISO container. In principle, a straightforward idea. However, this had to be done within a number of challenging constraints such as the need to load from the side, not being able to use flexible hoses, inflexible loading arms from the discharge facility and limited loading space, as the tank container needed to remain on the weighbridge at all times.
Every precaution taken
The nature of this client’s product requires very strict measures for ensuring safety and assuring product quality is not impacted. This includes extensive flushing of containers with Nitrogen before each load, and sampling product quality before/after loading.
After extensive testing and several pilots, the project was completed in just under two years. The technical solution built by Stolt Tank Containers is now being used to successfully load five tank containers per week.
