QCan I load 16,000 litres in a 24,000 litre flexitank?

No. If it is not fully loaded, the movement from transportation causes a wave action in the liquid inside the flexitank and it can cause a tsunami-like force from within the container. Under-loading will destroy any flexitank. The load tolerance of our flexitanks is +200 / -500 litres. Within this load tolerance you would stay still within Container Owner Association (COA) guidelines.

QCan the Flexitank be supplied with different valves/fittings/layers to suit a specific application?

Yes, in most instances we are able to supply different valves bearing in mind that the international standard is either 2″ or 3″ camloc valve fitting. Should the application require a “burping valve” this too can be supplied. Flexitanks can be manufactured to the number of layers required per unit at clients cost. In the instance of shipping solids in Flexitanks (ie. Tallo) we supply heater pads which are fitted upon installation of the flexitank to aid the liquefaction prior to discharge.
