Hoover Container Solutions, a global provider of chemical tanks, cargo carrying units and related products and services, has introduced acid tanks intended for safe transport and storage of a wide range of corrosive liquids and chemicals as the newest addition to its comprehensive offshore product line.
Hoover’s offshore acid tanks are constructed using carbon steel for the vessel, piping, valves, instruments and welds to withstand offshore service, with corrosion-resistant carbon steel used to construct the external frame of the tank. Linings for the interior of the tank are selected based on the materials being stored within the tank to ensure maximum corrosion protection.
Each of the transportable horizontal and vertical acid tanks are designed and manufactured to meet IMDG UN Portable Tank Type T14, DNV 2.7-1, EN12079, ADR/RID, CFR 49 standards and with frames designed to meet DNV 27-1 standards. Additionally, the acid tanks are equipped with a relief valve and rupture disc on the tank container as safety features.
“Hoover is committed to manufacturing and providing our customers the highest quality products and services available on the market,” said Donald Young, chairman and CEO, Hoover Container Solutions. “The addition of acid tote tanks will strengthen our comprehensive offshore product line by offering our customers a reliable and efficient solution for the transportation of chemicals such as those used in oil and gas processes, waste materials and aviation fuel.”
