Tank Container Solutions

Special Tank Container Solutions

Our ISO Tank Container systems are designed to operate worldwide and withstand the harshest handling conditions associated with road, rail, sea and extreme climate operation.

Over the past five decades, THIELMANN has gained deep insights into the extreme challenges multimodal transport faces and, thus, has designed container solutions which overcome all of these challenges.

In 2016, THIELMANNs tank container expertise grew even stronger with the acquisition of the WEW Westerwälder Eisenwerk GmbH, in Weitefeld, Germany. With this acquisition, THIELMANN was able to integrate a combined engineering expertise of over 100 years, WEW patents, WEW design rights and unique production and service capabilities.

We specialize in providing integrated systems combining liquid/gas storage with ancillary services, such as pumps, specialist linings, filtration, telemetry as well as heating and cooling systems.

Possible Certifications

Our tank solutions are designed and approved for the transport of liquids or gases according to ADR/RID/IMDG/GGVSEB. Further approvals, such as BAM, CFR 49, ASME U-Stamp, plus many more can also be provided on request.

Solutions for Special Requirements on Design and Material

Single-walled, but also double-walled tanks to comply with the WHG (German Water Budget Law) find place in the ISO or non ISO frame. Most commonly, 20 feet of ISO tank containers are manufactured; but also systems from 5 feet up to 40 feet ISO tank container systems as well as special solutions are possible. Tank containers made of carbon and stainless steel (V2A / V4A) in all grades are built most frequently. But special materials such as Hastelloy, nickel and titanium can also be used.

For some acids or alkalis, it is necessary to provide an inner lining for the tank containers, e.g. Chemline / Proco-EMAIL / Säkaphen etc .. Further variants of inner linings are for example plastic coating (PFA / FEP / Teflon etc.), special interior lacquers, lead linings and glass - enamel coatings.

For water and drinking water solutions our tank container systems can be equipped with feed pumps, hose reels, UV drinking water maintenance systems, chlorine dosing units and also reverse osmosis units.In the fuel sector, stationary and also independent mobile system solutions are used which are suitable for Diesel, gasoline and aviation fuel. Individual solutions for refueling cars, trucks, aircraft, helicopters and military vehicles can be offered.


Temperature Requirements

The temperature ranges of the transport media are in the temperature range from - 40 ° C to the high temperature range of + 240 ° C. Heating and cooling systems in various designs are used. Thermal oil, water / steam heating systems, electric heating systems, heating and cooling systems with documentation recorders for media which may only be transported in special temperature ranges can be supplied.

Insulations of tank containers are calculated and determined individually depending on the temperature range and use. The cladding of the insulation can be done in different designs. Often stainless-steel claddings matt or high gloss are used, but also aluminum and fiberglass claddings are possible.

Applications of our tank container solutions

Companies and Logistic Service Providers from the Chemical, Oil and Gas industry and Defense Forces can rely on THIELMANN container systems for the secure movement, storage and delivery of gases and liquids, ranging from foodstuffs to some of the most toxic chemicals and acids in existence.
