5 Top Applications of Flexitanks
Flexitanks are extremely flexible storage containers for storing and transportation of bulk liquids. These containers are of varying capacities ranging from 50 litres to 26 tonnes depending on the specific gravity of the liquids. The flexitanks have their own advantages over the other different types of containers for bulk liquid storage. Flexitanks offer the best ratio for capacity to weight as compared to any other type of containers.
In addition to this, after emptying, the flexitanks shrink down to occupy a minimal space, thereby making these ideal in case where there is a space crunch. Most importantly, the flexitanks are the most cost effective option for bulk liquid storage and transportation. Additionally, the flexitanks are both safe for the environment and the liquid stored in them. The flexitanks find a wide range of applications and the top five applications are as listed below.
Storage of Fuels
Flexitanks are great for storing of fuels like diesel, oil, liquid fuel, and similar others. For the storage of fuels, flexitanks are coated with a protected lining and berm which offers additional containment safety to the surroundings, thereby extremely suitable for storing fuels without any kind of hesitation.
Storage of Food Grade Liquids
Flexitanks are ideally suited for extremely safe as well as efficient storage of all food grade liquids such as milk, wine, oils, juices, syrups, and many more. At the time of using the flexitanks for storing or transporting of food grade liquids, the flexitanks require some specialised coating for the avoidance of microbial contamination, along with maintaining the cleanliness of the tanks itself. In addition to the coating materials are made up of approved food grade materials to keep the quality of the inner contents intact.
Industrial Chemical Storage
Another of the major application of flexitanks is to store different industrial chemicals that are non hazardous in nature. The flexitanks are ideal to store and transport fertilizers, lubricants, detergents, paints, and liquid latex are to name a few.
Storing Portable Water
Flexitanks are readily used to store portable water, particularly in cases of all disaster relief as well as emergency operations as per the requirements. The flexitanks occupy a minimal amount of space and can be transported to different places with utmost ease. Portable water storage is extremely significant in case emergency airports, field hospitals, and natural disasters where the flexitanks have an important role to play.
Temporary Storage of Liquid or for Single Use Storage
There are a number of applications where storage of liquid is temporarily required. In these situations, buying a steel of a composite rigid tank is not a feasible solution. In this regard, the flexitanks are appropriate for temporary storage or only for a single use storage. The flexitanks are ideal in case of sudden droughts, industrial uses where the requirements are not fixed and can fluctuate. The flexitanks are ideal in these cases readily reduces the overall costs of storage and transportation, hence ideal.
