Making your viscous supply chain greener
  • Sustainability – Reduces waste disposal, eliminates packaging cost and
    reduces risk for spillage.
  • Elimination of package material/related disposal costs – Pallets, liners,
    cartons, shrink-wrap.
  • Elimination of warehousing in-plant handling and administration costs – Working capital, inventory management, crane operation, order tracking.
  • Reduction of waste (heel) – Virtually, the entire product is discharged for use from a Piston Tank Trailer. Comparatively, other tank trailers often leave 500 to 1000 gallons of highly viscous product as a heel. This reduction in shipped waste translates to immediate savings for the user and reduced clean out costs for the shipper.
  • Elimination of contamination risk – Compared to drum and tote delivery, with their related problems of inventory control, product handling and drum disposal, the opportunity for product contamination is greatly reduced during transfer into the plant’s storage system. The Piston Tanker operates as a closed system, which eliminates all airborne and other environmental contaminants.
  • Using Piston Tank Trailers reduces delivered product costs – Buying in bulk has always permitted industry to benefit from the cost economy realized. Additional savings are accomplished through reduced labor costs and the elimination of handling and storing drums, along with improvements in plant safety, general appearance and environmental impact.
