ISO Tank lease - specifications for North American market
We have been busy putting together packages here in Houston Texas for the inquiries coming in and one of the most frequent questions is the type and spec of ISO tank for lease / rent that is available in either Houston, New orleans, or Chicago.
"What specifications can you provide with your ISO tank lease rates in Houston or New Orleans?
The simple answer is that it depends on the product; we can guide you through the process in trying to figure the correct spec ISO tank for your lease / rent project. For this entry, the most common will be the IMO-1 ISO tank container or T11 ISO tank container.
IMO-1 / T11 ISO (hazardous) tanks:
These units are designed for the carriage of:
• Liquids with a flashpoint of less than 0 deg C
• Certain high-hazard toxins or corrosives
• Spontaneously combustible materials
• Cargoes which are dangerous when exposed to moisture
• Oxidising substances
• Liquids with a total containment pressure of not more than the maximum allowable working pressure of the tank
Note: Corrosive or unstable cargoes may require the vessel to be constructed from special types of steel or specially lined. In no circumstances should liquids be carried if the vapour pressure is at 65 deg C, plus other pressures induced at this temperature, plus 0.35kg/sq cm (15 psi) exceeds the design pressure of the tank.
The standard IMO-1 / T11 ISO tank is provided with both a top and bottom outlet.
What do we mean by a ‘standard tank’? The most common tank type (IMO-1 / T11 ISO tanks) within the Lessors fleets has the following specification:-
a) 4 Bar working pressure and a 6 Bar test pressure.b) Minimum shell thickness of 6mm in mild steel or the equivalent in stainless steel.c) a bottom discharge valve with a 3” BSP, plus a provision for top. d) steam heating.e) 1 PVf) Tare weight between 3,750 – 4,200kg.g) Insulation of 50mm.h) Design temperature – typically 120°C, but could be as low as 93°C.i) Capacities ranging between 17,500 – 26,000 litres.j) Within ISO (20ft x 8ft x 8.5ft tall)
This tank type will generally carry more variety of products than any other.
