Optimized for the transportation of viscous liquid goods such as heavy fuel oil. Products can be heated to as much as +190°C to ensure there is no residue from discharging.

• Bottom valve, DN 100, heatable
• T-piece, DN 100, insulated, can be heated separately

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

The addition of a rising pipe can convert it to a chemical tank wagon, e.g. to carry phenol.

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