Differences of Flexitanks
Waterplex LiquA Flexitanks come in a variety of types that have their own sets of advantages and benefits. For example, the E-Flex tanks are best suited for transporting non-hazardous, food-grade liquid goods in standard dry box shipping containers while the R-Flex tanks are more suited for refrigerated shipping containers. The H-Flex is designed to heat up the container before the liquids arrive at their destination to limit the amount of time spent on defrosting the goods. We also have the K-Flex for more convenient and space-saving shipments and the I-Flex for temporary site storage.
E-Flex 20’ GP Dry Box Flexitanks
Waterplex is offering you the experience of the world leading superior self-supporting flexitank with no bulkhead, the LiquA E-Flex Flexitanks. These flexitanks are the ideal liquid transport solution that offer a number of advantages. The elimination of the need for a bulkhead significantly simplifies the installation process by removing the risks that are associated with it. Since there is no bulkhead, there is also an elimination in disposal costs or waste issues from disposing the bulkhead or shipping it back to its origin.
R-Flex 20’ Reefer Flexitanks
Waterplex offers the world leading superior self-supporting LiquA R-Flex Flexitank Reefers, which are designed for reliably transporting liquids in refrigerated shipping containers. Ideal for transporting high-density liquids such as liquid sugars or fruit concentrates, the R-Flex can be used in standard shipping containers while not exerting any pressure on the sides of the container; thereby, removing the risk of damaging containers or refrigeration equipment, potentially causing them to fail due to the forces at play. Additionally, since the R-Flex does not require any bulkhead, you don't have freight, disposal, or waste costs related to bulkheads.
H-Flex 20’ Heating System Flexitanks
The LiquA H-Flex Steam Liner is the innovative idea of introducing a total heating system into a flexitank using a chamber that preserves and circulates steam all around the flexitank. The H-Flex works by applying up to 4 bars, 130° C steam into the Steam Liner where it is distributed and circulated from the top to the bottom to the centre of the flexitank, heating the cargo with a high transmission rate. Eventually, the 130° C steam condenses to 20° C water by transmitting its whole heat/energy to the cargo.
K-Flex IBC Flexitanks
The advantage to the K-Flex is that the product is shipped in a new tank each and every time. This overcomes issues of potential product contamination and the cost of returning empty tanks back to the shipping dispatch point. The flexitanks can be recycled provided the liquid residue is acceptable to the recycler. And because there is no bulkhead required for these flexitanks, the carbon footprint is significantly reduced because less materials are required and shipping is more efficient. They also have the added advantage that bulkheads do not have to be repatriated for the destination port. The IBCs come in a number of configurations and can be supplied with customised inlet and outlet fittings and other options (note that minimum quantities may apply).
I-Flex Site Storage Reusable Flexitanks
Offering reliable and flexible short-term and longer-term storage, the Waterplex LiquA I-Flex Flexitank is the food-grade bladder tank solution designed to benefit food manufacturers who have limited permanent storage capacity. The tank is ideal for managing liquids with uncertain supply and demand patterns beyond existing storage capacity. The I-Flex can be made to almost any capacity up to 75,000 litres, depending on the storage requirement, which may be either at the manufacturing location or at the customer's premises, and the available space.
