Chemical Container services in India
Did you know that ISO Tanks are environmentally friendly. It has a long lifespan and leaves a carbon footprint that is almost 50% less than that of an equivalent drummed shipment on certain long-haul routes. The most effective way to transport liquids, gases, and hazardous materials is in a tank container. Fulcrum Shipping & Logistics is a known ISO tank container manufacturer in India.
An international standard called ISO 6346 outlines how to identify a shipping container. Every tank container gets an ISO code
The BIC (International Container Bureau) maintains the standard, which includes information about each shipping container's serial number, owner, country code, and size.
ISO Tank containers are mostly manufactured from stainless steel which has natural corrosion resistance. The containers can withstand variations in pressure and temperature and can maintain a specific temperature for temperature sensitive cargo. Around 95% of tankers have 20ft dimensions despite the fact they come in other sizes, including 10ft, 30ft, 40ft and 45ft.
The concept of having all the containers with mechanically stable frames around them, common connections and methods for locking them securely in place- means cranes and other material handling devices are built to quickly connect to the tank and securely move it from vehicle to vehicle. This makes the containers more convenient to move around and also get stacked.
The ISO Tank Container’s development has allowed the carriage of all types of products ranging from, but not limited to, portable (food grade) liquids, hazardous and non-hazardous aqueous materials, including corrosives, explosives, toxics and flammables. Utilizing an ISO tank container helps eliminate the risk in transferring solutions (liquids) from one vessel to another. This provides a cost-effective, secure and extremely safe viable mode of shipment.
