What is moved in flexitanks?

Flexitanks are commonly used to transport non-hazardous liquids, such as food-grade, industrial, and non-hazardous chemicals. The most common types of liquids moved in flexitanks include:

Food-grade liquids: These include edible oils, fruit juices, wine, and other food-grade fluids.

Industrial liquids: Include base oils, lubricants, and other non-hazardous industrial fluids.

Non-hazardous chemicals: include various non-hazardous chemicals used in industries such as pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and agricultural chemicals.

Flexitanks are not suitable for transporting hazardous materials or liquids with high levels of acidity or alkalinity, as they may damage the flexitank or cause product contamination.

Before shipping any liquid in a flexitank, confirming that the product is suitable for flexitank transportation and that the flexitank is appropriate for the product is essential.
