Pneumatic Dry Bulk Tanker

High-Performance Pneumatic Dry Bulk Tanker

If you are looking for a lightweight, efficient, and versatile solution for transporting bulk plastic pellets, you’ve found it.  Our four-hopper pneumatic dry bulk tanker is a powerhouse of efficiency and innovation. This trailer is designed to transport bulk materials like plastic pellets and tackle demanding jobs while maximizing productivity. This state-of-the-art trailer is meticulously engineered to meet the demands of the modern plastics industry, offering a seamless blend of durability, performance, and safety.

Lightweight Aluminum Construction for Enhanced Efficiency

At the core of this tanker lies its robust yet lightweight aluminum body. Constructed from high-quality AL 5454-H32 with a ¼” thickness, this material offers significant advantages:

  • Reduced Weight: Compared to traditional steel tankers, the aluminum construction translates to a substantial weight reduction. This translates to better fuel efficiency for your operation and less wear and tear on your truck.
  • Enhanced Corrosion Resistance: Aluminum naturally resists corrosion, minimizing maintenance needs and extending the lifespan of the tanker.
  • Improved Maneuverability: The lighter weight allows for better handling and maneuverability on the road.

Unmatched Performance for Efficient Loading and Unloading TransWorld pneumatic vacuum Tank

This pneumatic tanker boasts a comprehensive system designed for efficient and safe loading and unloading of plastic pellets:

  • Four Hopper Design: The four-hopper design with a total capacity of 1636 Cu. Ft. allows for compartmentalized loading and unloading of different materials.
  • Positive and Vacuum Pressure Operations: This versatile trailer can function in both pressure and vacuum modes, providing flexibility for various loading and unloading scenarios.
  • Durable Piping System: 4-inch and 5-inch aluminum lines with BTI BLACKMAXX butterfly valves ensure smooth material flow and control. Cam-on couplings and aluminum snap joint couplings facilitate easy connection and disconnection.
  • Advanced Filtration System: The BTI SPINFLOW filter and SOLIMAR cyclone filter work together to ensure clean and efficient material transfer while minimizing product loss. A cleanout door on the filter canister allows for easy maintenance.
  • Multiple Discharge Options: The rear discharge line, top air lines, and product line cleanout offer various options for material discharge.

Safety Features You Can Trust

Safety remains paramount when transporting bulk materials. This tanker is equipped with a suite of features to ensure the well-being of your operators and the surrounding environment:

  • High-Tensile Steel Frame: The 3/16” high tensile DOMEX H50 carbon steel frame provides a strong foundation for the aluminum tank.
  • Pressure Relief Valves: Both a 15 PSI BTI pressure relief valve on the blow-down line and a 15” high BTI vacuum relief valve ensure safe operation and prevent excessive pressure buildup.
  • Liquid-Filled Gauges: Two glycerin-filled pressure gauges (0-30 PSI) and two vacuum gauges (0-30 Hg) provide clear and accurate readings for tank and line pressure.
  • DOT-Compliant Conspicuity Tape: Reflective conspicuity tape enhances the trailer’s visibility on the road, promoting safety for everyone.

Additional Features for Convenience and Efficiency

This aluminum tanker comes equipped with a variety of user-friendly features that enhance convenience and efficiency:

  • Easy Access Manways: Four top-mounted 20” BETTS 8555ABF manways with 180-degree opening lids provide easy access for inspection and cleaning.
  • Air System Components: An air inlet line with filter, cooler, and on/off pressure switch ensures optimal airflow control. Automatic slack adjusters maintain consistent brake performance.
  • Durable Suspension and Landing Gear: The Hendrickson HT300 air ride suspension offers a comfortable ride and superior handling. A Holland Mark V landing gear set provides stable trailer support when disconnected from the truck.
  • Aluminum Ladder and Walkway: An anti-slip aluminum ladder with a walkway and grab handles provides safe access for inspection and maintenance.
  • Aluminum Hose Tubes and Holders: Multiple aluminum hose tubes with storage doors and an adjustable hose stand ensure proper hose management.
  • LED Lighting System: A complete LED lighting system by Grote offers excellent visibility and durability.
  • Durable Fenders and Bumper: Contoured aluminum fenders and a full-width aluminum bumper with convenience steps protect the trailer and enhance functionality.
  • Axles, Wheels, and Tires: Two robust 25,000 lbs. rated axles with Hendrickson ADI 10-stud hubs and 11R 22.5 tires provide a solid foundation for the trailer.
  • Axalta Imron Elite Paint: High-quality metallic gray paint protects the steel undercarriage from corrosion.
  • Weight Scale System: A right-weight scale system provides real-time weight information for optimal load management.
