Modifying ISO Tanks
Electric Heating System
We are usually modifying ISO tanks for our customers. The most common way we modify them involves adding an external heating system. As standard most ISO Tank Containers come with heating coils welded to the tank. These coils are used to circulate an external supply of steam or hot water to heat the contents of the tank.
There are situations where steam is unavailable. If 3 phase electricity is available, Qualitank can fit an external heater that pumps heated glycol around the steam coils. Below is a 25,000 Litre ISO Tank we have fitted with a 12KW Glycol heater.
Our ISO Tank Containers are often used in a static location and connected up to equipment to stop/start pumps or other ancillary equipment. We can modify the tank and fit the relevant sensors to allow automatic control of external equipment. The tank above has a simple overfill alarm fitted.
Handrails and Walkways
Increasingly, health and safety concerns mean our customers need a collapsible handrail fitted . The above tank has a collapsible handrail in the raised position.
Bottom Loading and Discharge
Qualitank can fit piping and valves so that the operator does not need to leave the ground for loading or discharging. As a result, you can use compressed air the to pressurise the ISO Tank and pump the contents out through the modified pipework.
Increasingly health and safety regulations mean that no-one is allowed on top of the ISO tank. We can modify piping so the air inlet valve is at ground level. thereby no employee need go on top of the tank to open the valve.
