Why Flexitank?

The Flexitank is a versatile and cost-effective alternative to solid tanks. A Flexitank can fit into any standard dry shipping container of 20 feet. Flexitanks are good for one-way liquid transport. Flexitanks can have a capacity between 14,000 - 24,000 liters. A Flexitank is basically a multilayer polypropylene bag. They weigh about 60 kilograms when empty and folded. Every Flexitank comes with state-of-the-art accessories, linings, and bulkheads - everything you need to ship your bulk liquid product.

Flexitanks are completely sterile, and they won't damage products. Also, Flexitanks remove any possibility of cross-contamination. This advantage is significant if kosher and halal product transportation is needed. Flexitanks are also ideal for any other products where you can't risk cross-contamination. Flexitanks are also a great choice for non-hazardous chemicals.

They also answer the expensive problem of repositioning empty tanks. Over $20B is spent on empty repositioning each year, according to analysts. Flexitanks can be sent anywhere in the world with the need for empty tank repositioning.

Flexitanks Compared To Solid Tanks

Solid tank containers should be used for transporting hazardous materials in bulk. Solid tanks are also good for liquid cargoes that need larger sizes compared to a Flexitank. Traditional tanks are stronger than dry containers fitted with a Flexitank. Solid tanks can be modified for hazardous chemicals. They offer more stability, too.

Flexitanks should only be fit inside containers by certified personnel. Of course, KriCon Group obtained certifications for fitting depot locations worldwide, assuring its personnel are properly certified to install Flexitanks.

KriCon does offer traditional solid tank containers, too. These can be modified to suit specific needs, such as size or extra stability. Tank containers used to transport chemicals cannot be used again for food products. There is a risk of cross-contamination by previous cargo when reusing tanks. To avoid that risk, use a Flexitank instead.

If you are unsure which way to store and transport your liquid cargo, KriCon Group offers technical consultancy. They can analyze your supply chain and your current shipping methods. Both the KriCon Group tank container and flexitank divisions are great container solutions. The KriCon Group is risk averse themselves. So, they can offer you the safest solution to load and ship your product.
