A flexitank in simple terms can be explained as a liquid bulk container meant for storage and transportation of bulk liquid and which is generally made of polyethylene materials. Depending on the specific gravity of the liquid, these flexitanks are available with capacities ranging from 16000 to 24000 liters.
Loading and Discharging
A reputed flexitank manufacturer, Rishi FIBC provides useful technical assistance with every load. The Flexitank is available with a fitted 3” male cam lock connection and valve for the purpose of discharging and filling. Depending on the specifications of the pump, viscosity of the product and available facilities – loading and discharging of materials can take anywhere from half an hour to 2 hours.
Loading and discharge of the materials is taken care of by opening the right hand door of the flexitank while the left hand door is always kept closed. Discharging, filling and handling time is lowered by up to 90% when compared to similar operations which make use of drums instead of flexitanks.
