AMSTEL undertakes the role of both carrier and operator in the trade between buyer and seller by reserving empty tank equipments from all ports of the world by means of specialized liquefied cargo agencies only in liquid cargo transportation around the world. Liquid chemical substance tanker which is certified by the world's most specialized institutions Offers a superior quality of service in the field of liquid chemical transport and creates solutions around the world with its fleet of "ISO Container Network", multi-purpose container carrier chassis and suitable attractors spread in almost every region of the world.
AMSTEL is active in all kinds of hazardous and non-hazardous liquid chemical substances as international and domestic bulk.
WHAT IS ISO TANK?
In the container industry, the term "tank" is usually used in stainless steel, a pressurized horizontally cylindrical container and a steel frame with a 20 foot-long tank container.
Tank containers are containers that are suitable for multiple haulage used to transport bulk liquids, gases, some powdered materials and granules. They are built according to international regulations to carry hazardous and non-hazardous cargo in various classes. The vast majority of tank containers are designed as an ISO (International Standardization Organization) unit of stainless steel in the form of pressure receptacles (the dimensions of the tanks are the same as those of the lifting points and as specified in the ISO standards).
The cubic capacities of ISO tank containers can range from 10,000 liters to 26,000 liters (www.atcoasia.com, 22.09.2014). 49 ISO tank containers have been developed to carry all liquid bulk loads from harmful substances such as flammable, explosive, abrasive and poisonous liquids to harmless ones such as vegetable oil and wine. Tank containers are equipment that offer a safe, safe, cost-effective transport option by removing the risk that liquids can be transferred from one transport system to another. The tank consists of a cylindrical tank with containers, a discharge valve in the middle and various means and a frame supporting it. The function of the frame is to facilitate stacking and handling by supporting and protecting the tank (www.intermodaltank.com, 22.09.2014). Tank containers should be loaded no more than 80% to prevent sudden agitation of the liquid inside during transport and not more than 95% in principle so that sufficient space for thermal expansion can be maintained.
WHAT ARE FLEXIBLE?
Equipments used vary according to type of goods. The loaded product and transport conditions play an essential role in determining the packaging and transport units. Generally, liquid and liquid loads are solidified with a package suitable for their type, and dry container types are generally preferred. Together with the growth of global trade, technology has benefited from the transport of non-hazardous bulk liquid loads with solid-strength packaging and transport units.
The purpose of this equipment is; is to provide a bulk liquid cargo carriage to the operational convenience of a normal dry container. At this point, transportation is carried out at a safe and low cost.
FlexiTank on; odor, liquid and permeability against external influences, and with high efficiency, it is preferred for transporting vegetable oil, fruit concentrate, beverages and dangerous bulk liquid loads.
FlexiTank; IBC has 15% more capacity than equipments, 44% more than barrel and 50% more than bottles. Tanks with carrying capacity up to 26 thousand liters are produced.
Filling speeds, load capacities, the cost of fixing within the transport unit is very low, and they are disposable without the cost of cleaning, which reduces the cost of using this equipment. Also, the equipment used is not suitable for recycling.
Flexitanks are suitable for the use of mixed transport types in terms of availability for intermodal transport and multimodal transport. In addition, the ability to carry more sheltered products that can cause environmental pollution can be described as a green logistics solution, thanks to the high efficiency and cost advantages offered by the capacity.
