An ISO Tank is a tank container which is built to the ISO standard (International Organisation for Standardisation). ISO tanks are designed to carry liquids in bulk, both hazardous and non-hazardous.
The tank is made of stainless steel and is surrounded by various types of protective layers. Different skins can be used with an ISO tank depending on the type of bulk cargo it is carrying. It has a manhole on the top along with at least one valve and another valve on the bottom. They are shaped like a cylinder.
Because ISO tanks are built to the ISO standard, the frame which the tank sits in measures about 6 metres long, 2.4 metres wide and between 2.4-2.5 metres high. The tanks vary in size and type and can carry between 14.000 and 26.000 litres of liquid.
Tanks are available with and without baffles and can be customized to meet specific individual product needs.

There are plenty of advantages for using an ISO tank. They are a highly reliable, cost effective and safe way of transporting bulk liquids from place to place.
ISO tanks are designed to meet specific criteria according to the substance they will be carrying. Because of this they are very reliable and can withstand extreme pressure and damage. They are highly unlikely to leak, do not require additional packaging materials for the cargo, can maintain a specific temperature for temperature sensitive cargo and they can be transported by road, rail or boat.
Because ISO tanks are built according to the ISO standard, all the valves must be inspected and each tank must have three closures. All three closures must have failed before a leak would happen; making ISO tanks a safer way of transporting bulk liquid than drums and flexi-bags.
