Description

The 15-6900-04 tank car is designed to carry treacle and vegetable oils on 1500 mm gauge mainline railways. The range of goods which can be transported includes some 30 products of the food processing industry, from starch products to vegetable oils.

The use of a stainless steel tank design protects the freight ensuring the quality of both by-products and prepared goods remains unaffected throughout the transportation process. If requested by the customer, the interior surface of the tank may be subjected to a combined (both mechanical and chemical) treatment bring the car in conformity with global quality standards. The use of a steam heating system and a bent-axis tank allow for the maximum possible discharge of product under different temperature conditions.

The treacle and vegetable oil tank car is fully compatible with the existing infrastructure and can be handled at all types of loading and unloading terminals.
