The latest generation of titanium tanks

By Mary Page Bailey and Gerald Ondrey |

Hoyer

Under contract to a major chemical industry manufacturer, this company’s engineers developed a new generation of titanium tank containers (photo) for highly corrosive dangerous goods. After two years of intensive development work and construction time, two units were brought into operation in January 2021. The project team made a successful breakthrough by attaching the steel frame to the titanium tank, and also designed a high-performing heating system. The two new titanium tank containers were developed and built specifically to transport molten monochloroacetic acid (MCA). This company leases the containers to a chemical industry user with worldwide operations, for which it transports the highly corrosive product at an elevated temperature. Because conventional rubberized or coated stainless-steel tank containers do not withstand the product requirements and transport conditions, this customized solution made of titanium was developed. — Hoyer GmbH Internationale Fachspedition, Hamburg, Germany
