CRYOGENIC TANK CONTAINERS

Basing on its long-time experience in manufacturing of pressure vessels, CHEMET has implemented into the production the first series of transportable cryogenic tanks for atmospheric gases.

The so-called ISO-containers 20', 30' and 40' are designed for intermodal transport of atmospheric gases: oxygen (LOX), argon (LAR), nitrogen (LIN), carbon dioxide (LCO2) and liquefied natural gas (LNG).

Application

Cryogenic tank containers (ISO-containers) are widely used for the transportation of atmospheric gases (oxygen, nitrogen, argon) and LNG in the intermodal transport - by sea, road and rail. They can also serve as stationary storage tanks where, for various reasons, building for example LNG stationary satellite station is not profitable.

Design

The ISO-container construction is in accordance with Directive TPED 2010/35/EC and the standard EN 13530.

Fittings

Standard cryogenic tanks are equipped with a complete system of safety valves and plates, ensuring a minimum level of loss of gas and the safe and efficient loading and unloading of gas.
