Flexitanks for liquids

Flexitank overview

Flexitanks are bulk liquid containers constructed from multiple layers of food grade polyethylene and enclosed in an outer layer of high strength abrasion-resistant woven polypropylene.

This construction allows for the transport in standard 20-foot sea or railway containers of non-hazardous liquids of volumes ranging from 14,000 to 24,000 litres. The Flexitanks are designed for single-trip use, are environmentally friendly and can be recycled. They are a safe and cost effective solution for bulk liquid transport.

They are approved by the US Food & Drugs Administration (FDA), and other relevant international bodies, for the carriage of bulk liquid products.
