Flexible Holding Tank The Way Of The Future
Whether they are used to carry fuel, water or other liquids, flexible tanks are a fantastic alternative for marine and aircraft, and road transport.
Tough, space-saving and safer than many traditional tanks, they have long been used by the military and industry.
Flexible water tanks have revolutionised marine craft, with their ability to be squeezed into small spaces, and rolled up and stored when not in use.
Tried and Tested
Leading flexible tank manufacturer, Turtle-Pac, has tested all its products in extreme conditions, with great results every time. When the yacht, Scorpius put to sea to circumnavigate the South and North Poles, it had 8 SUPER DECK 1000 tanks on board.
And when the Polish yacht, SY Katharsis II sailed from Hobart to Antarctica to Auckland, it did so carrying 2300 litres of extra fuel in 7 SUPER DECK tanks, stored on and below deck.
Flexible holding tanks offer many advantages, including easy maintenance, lighter load, fast installation, and fast installation. There are many on the market, but superiority comes down to the materials and methods used to make them.
Flexible Holding Tanks
Turtle-Pac flexible holding tanks are made in Australia, from a super-strong nylon weave core. This is double-coated for extreme resistance to the elements. Seams are electro fuse welded for added durability.
The inner tank is approved for drinking water, as there is no air space, and algae is therefore far less likely to form. If used for fuel, flexible tanks guarantee no condensation, no corrosion, and far less risk from dangerous vapours.
Due to the ability to safely carry liquids, and the practically indestructible materials used in construction, flexible holding tanks are favoured by the military. They can be dropped, with or without parachute into war zones, and used to drop humanitarian aid.
World First for Drop Drum
In trials, Drop Drums were released from 15 metres, without parachutes, onto hard stony ground, and landed safe and sound. This won the Drop Drum 205 the title of 'world's first air droppable drum without parachute'!
This type of drop is much faster than traditional methods, helping ensure the safety of the air and ground crew.
Flexible holding tanks have a greater life expectancy than rigid tanks, and form a more stable cargo, especially in poor weather conditions.
Manufactured by Turtle-Pac since 1978, flexible holding tanks are used on private, commercial and military boats and aircraft. Recently rolled out in Russia, at the 10th International Helicopter Industry Exhibition in Moscow, the tanks allow for longer periods between refuelling, saving time and money.
Alternative Rainwater Storage
Their use as flexible water tanks has delivered an unexpected bonus. They are excellent for rainwater storage. Flexible tanks are also quicker and easier to install.
With increasing focus on using eco-friendly, sustainable technology in building construction, the flexible water tank offers much potential. Water can be moved around as needed, with surplus tanks rolled up and stored.
Aesthetically, the flexible holding tank offers many advantages, with the ability to place it out of sight, underneath the house or decking. And when you move, you can take your rainwater tanks with you!
Queensland journalist Isobel Coleman takes a closer look at flexible holding tanks, for use at sea, in the air, in war zones, and in the family home.
