Heat Pads

Does your product require heating before discharging the flexitank? No worries, we provide heat pads for to our customers. Discharging those products with high viscosity has never been easier.

Flexitank heater pad techno tanks

“We transport oils with Techno Tanks™ Flexitanks and using their heat pads makes our job simple.”   Chris Seal

What is a heating pad?

Techno Tanks™ Flexitanks are a versatile tool for transporting bulk liquid; however, some products that have a higher viscosity are harder to discharge once they have cooled down during transit. The heat pads were developed and engineered to safely heat highly viscous products to achieve the viscosity levels required to discharge from a flexitank. In short, heat pads provide a safe and efficient way to lower the viscosity of a product and ensure that liquids can be pumped at destination. Contact us to find out which is the appropriate heat pad for your product.

Strong and dependable

Our heating pads are made out of vulcanized rubber making them strong and reliable.

Safe and efficient

The sealed circuits allow steam to flow properly and lower the viscosity of the liquids without any risk.

Simple to use

The pads are simply placed below the flexitanks and they work with universal fittings for steam or water.

Even heating

The multiple circuit design provides even heating facilitating a quick and safe discharge.

Unload only heating

The heat pads are designed to be used only at the dischare point. Not for heating during transit.

Iso-Flex Tank Compatible

The heat pads are compatible with our Techno Tanks™ Iso-Flex reusable Iso Tanks.

heating pad operation

  • Upon container arrival, open the right hand door of the container, untie the rubber hoses attached to the bulkhead, straighten the hoses and connect one to the supply of  steam or water hose you will use.
  • Ensure that steam or water is properly discharging from the outlet hoses and slowly increase the steam or hot water pressure into the heater pad.
  • Check the melting temperature of the product and ensure that you are not overheating the product.
  • Once the product has been sufficiently melted, initiated the discharge process without removing the heat source. Keep the heat source connected until 1/4 of the product remains and then slowly begin to decrease the steam or water pressure.
  • Allow the heat pads to cool off before disconnecting all hoses and dispose of the pads once the operation is completed.
  • Typical products that require the use of a heating pad are: Oils, Fats, Organic Compounds and Sweeteners.
