What Are FlexiTanks?

FlexiTanks are storage solutions made from layers of polyethylene. The bladders are coated in a final layer of woven polypropylene to improve structural integrity. They are used as direct replacements for drums and IBCs that are typically used for container shipping.

FlexiTanks can store up to 24,000 liters and are suitable for shipping containers measuring 20 ft. in length. With a flexible tank, you can convert a standard container used for dry goods into the perfect liquid container.

Because tanks expand to fill space within a container, they maximize efficiency, which can help to reduce your overall costs.

See all the benefits and find out why a FlexiTank reservoir could be the perfect solution for your business.

1: Improve Cost Efficiency with FlexiTanks

When shipping goods, cost management is essential. When you reduce costs, you must ensure that the integrity of the product is never compromised. FlexiTanks perfectly fit in with this philosophy.

Cost efficiency increases because you won’t need to use individual totes and drums. You maximize the space within a container so each container can carry a higher volume of your product. You will learn that handling speed is increased, which can also reduce your costs.

Overall, the efficiency gained by using flexible bladder transportation is unrivaled in the shipping industry. If you are moving nonhazardous cargo, there’s simply no better option on the market today.

2: Eliminate Contamination Risk

FlexiTanks are single-use, so there’s no chance of contamination.

3: Improve Handling Speed

When using drums and totes, it’s necessary to use manual or machine-assisted labor to transfer containers at the shipping destination. FlexiTanks don’t suffer from this problem. Handling speed is reduced because flexible bladders can be emptied directly to tankers or other storage solutions. Because the entire cargo is held in a single bladder, the loss is reduced to negligible levels.

4: A Better Solution for Food Products and Pharmaceutical Liquids

FlexiTanks are manufactured using materials that are approved by the US Food & Drugs Administration (FDA). This means you can transfer liquid foodstuffs and even pharmaceutical grade liquids while remaining fully compliant. This can drastically increase the efficiency of your shipping operation when compared to drums and totes.

Some examples of products and base materials that can be shipped in a FlexiTank include:

  • Animal and vegetable oil.
  • Beer and wine.
  • Milk.
  • Soybean oil.
  • Water.
  • Industrial oil.
  • Motor oil.
  • Biodiesel.
  • Shampoo and cosmetic liquids.
  • Detergents.
  • Glycerin.
  • Latex.
  • Paper pulp.
  • Emulsions.
  • Glues.
  • Adhesives.
  • Sauces ready for packaging or processing.

This list is by no means extensive, but it shows the versatility of using flexible tanks for your liquid shipping needs.

5: Eliminate Cleaning Costs

FlexiTanks are single-use, however, they are recyclable, which reduces environmental waste. Because the tanks don’t need to be shipped back to base, you will cut a significant amount of cost from your annual shipping budget. You will only need to hire a container for a one-way journey, which further helps to reduce costs.
