New 40ft flexitank for bulk liquid transport, compatible with temperature-controlled containers
Hillebrand is well-known for its integrated end-to-end services and innovative solutions in creating the best bulk shipping solutions to meet each liquid’s requirements.
The latest release is a new versatile 40ft flexitank that can be used in both dry and temperature controlled containers.
Designed to carry bulk liquid products in to-the-degree conditions, this flexitank also increases supply chain efficiency and saves emissions because it allows larger quantities to be moved in one container.
Now customers can fix the exact temperature their liquids depending on their thermal sensitivity and specific requirements during loading, shipping and unloading.
“We have successfully transported beverages around the world since Hillebrand was founded in 1844. We will continue to evolve the services we offer our customers, constantly innovating to answer industry needs and deliver a service that exceeds expectations.” Cees van Gent, CEO and Chairman of the Executive Board
Thanks to the logical design of this flexitank, the liquid carried can also be loaded and discharged from a single point, with minimal residue remaining. It also incorporates unique and patented wave-breaking technology to mitigate risk by dampening the surging of the liquid during transport and preventing container bulging.
Jacob Moe, COO of Hillebrand’s Bulk Division, says: “This new flexitank is the result of careful research and our promise to always build bulk shipping solutions in response to customers’ needs. Born from the original request from a fruit juice-producing customer – to find a solution for moving product in frozen conditions and a latex customer to move product in hot conditions – this flexitank was designed to manage any non-hazardous product; whether cold, warm or ambient. This is a sustainable option for customers wanting to move large quantities of liquid in a flexitank that is 100 percent recyclable.”
