TankBag Launches Innovative Liner for ISO Tank Containers – Optimizes Fleet Utilization, Eliminates Prior Cargo Restrictions & Guarantees Product Integrity For Bulk Liquid Shippers

CLEVELAND, OH (March 31, 2016) – TankBagproudly announces the launch of its Single-Use Liner for ISO Tanks, providing an innovative solution for bulk liquid shippers & operators to optimize their fleet. TankBag for bulk liquid logistics eliminates prior cargo restrictions critical for product integrity and cleaning costs for tough to clean products.

Waldemar Finke, General Manager, TankBag (USA) LLC, further explains the new product’s benefits: “It’s becoming more and more difficult for operators to provide the right tank, in the right place.  TankBagprovides essentially a brand new tank for every load – meeting FOSFA, FDA, EU Food, and Kosher requirements, as well as sensitive pharmaceutical product requirements.  Further, it enables operators to have a clean tank available without expensive positioning, providing clean tanks in areas where cleaning is not an option, or where the cost of cleaning is prohibitive.  It will dramatically reduce the number of empty container transports while increasing fleet utilization.”

 

Innovation for Bulk Liquid Logistics

Fred Hunger, Chief Executive Officer, TankBag, elaborates on Finke’s statement, explaining: “TankBag is a game changer for ISO tank shippers, the operators, and the bulk liquid logistics industry as a whole.  We have examples where shippers utilizing IBC’s due to product integrity issues, can now realize the economies of scale achieved with ISO tanks.  So this innovation can also have the impact of expanding the ISO tank market.  All the strength and safety of an ISO Tank is now enhanced with TankBag – and is backed by the tested and proven approach of our R&D methodology and manufacturing process.”

Simple Process. Tested & Proven Results.

The TankBag liner is loaded and discharged by a pump using a loading hose through the manlid.  The simple loading process will be completed in 30-45 minutes. Discharging is straightforward and takes approximately the same amount of time.

The product is manufactured using a high-quality food-grade polyethylene, made from 100% virgin resin. The polypropylene valve, coupling and flanges are all made using proprietary molds by TankBag (USA) LLC. This innovative product provides all the strength and safety of an ISO Tank plus the tested and proven product safety of the TankBag.

TankBag ISO Tank liners are available immediately.
