In bulk liquid logistics, several products are known to cause pitting corrosion in conventional stainless-steel tank containers, such as chlorides, bromides and fatty acids. These containers will need to be cleaned and inspected more often and will likely need repairs with time. The cost and time involved make logistics less efficient and therefore costly. Even after repairs, pitting has an increased potential to reoccur. Therefore, the tank container will reduce in value, or in some cases even be declared total loss.
For Tankwell’s lightweight tank containers, pitting corrosion is no issue. The composite tank containers provide a safe, durable and cost-effective solution to transport bulk liquids, especially when pitting corrosion is involved.
