20’ and 40’ ISO-Tanks
lntermodal tanks can be transferred as a regular container, between trucking, railroad, and marine vessels without affecting its contents.
Strictly dedicated ISO tanks for compatible edible products are used as food grade tanks. In addition, Flexitank Inc. has designed heat resistant ISO tanks made of stainless steel for specific services such as aviation gasoline and Toluene Diisocyanate. The IMO 5’s are only used to transport compressed or liquefied gas inside a steel-solid tank.
This equipment consists of a pillow type tank inside a 20′ dry container, typically in the 21,000-25,000 It. range, which could be constructed from a nylon/polyurethane composite material (thermoplastic) or from rubber (elastomer). There are disposable versions of the thermoplastic tank but generally they are extensively re-used.
Flexitank recommends flexible tanks for products sensitive to air exposure, such as latex, and for long routes where the lower capital costs result in substantial savings.
Flexible Tanks cannot be used to transport hazardous materials.

IBC’s are gaining enormous popularity in industrialized nations due to the many benefits they offer over drums:
Flexitank, Inc. is actively promoting a combination of intermodal tank transportation and localized IBC’s to replace drum distribution in the off-shore markets. Through its local agencies, Flexitank, Inc. deploys a number of IBC’s in the country, which can be rotated between our warehouse and the receiving consumer or be permanently positioned at the latter (to be refilled by a moving tanker).
Flexitank, Inc. has long and short-lived IBC’s, depending on the initial investment justified, which range in capacity from 220 gallons/833 liters (4 drums) to 550 gallons/2,082 liters (10 drums). Highly hazardous materials can also be handled in IBC’s. They could be purchased, leased, or operated based on customer needs.
