Low Loss ISO Containers

The customer had a requirement for extended holding times and to minimise losses when transporting Argon to remote destinations. The design developed utilised new insulation materials to reduce heat inleak by up to 25%, thereby both increasing the rated travel time of the containers, as well as reducing the gas losses in the event of natural venting.

Additionally, due to the requirement for the containers to act as longer term storage vessels once on site in remote locations, there was a requirement to provide an internal recondensing system to allow the use of sacrificial nitrogen to reduce the pressure and temperature of the product, and thereby minimize losses of the expensive imported product.
