Heated and insulated bottom discharge | carbon steel | C22.080D


Designed for the transportation of liquid goods in RID classes 3, 6 and 9.

Products can be heated to as much as +190°C to ensure there is no residue from discharging.

Can be filled via the bottom discharge. Top discharge can be fitted as an option.

The addition of a riser can convert it to a chemical tank wagon, e.g. to carry phenol, benzene and vinyl acetate monomer.

Uncomplicated and inexpensive tank cleaning thanks to externally mounted heating system.
