Flexitank for Bitumen

Steel Drums are widely used as the main packing method for liquid Bitumen. Drums are strong and safe for storage and transport of liquid bitumen, however drums take large space for storage. Clients at destination have to heat up the drums so as to discharge bitumen out of the drums. Moreover for clients in countries running strict environmental protection policy, empty drums disposal is a huge expense.




Jumbo Bags can be a cost efficient alternative solution for liquid bitumen transport. Each 20 feet container can hold 20 Jumbo bags, 

which means 20 MT bitumen could be loaded within a 20ft container. The jumbo bags 

usually can be melted with the bitumen at discharge.


Because the jumbo bag is a flexible packaging, after fully loaded with liquid bitumen, it have to be laden on the ground to cool down the 

bitumen inside, or to put the jumbo into frame cage to constrain the bitumen inside, that builds the warehousing 

and packaging cost high for bitumen transport with container.


HTR Flexitank is a flexitank with a new heat-resistant material technology, it is specially designed for bulk liquid cargo with high filling 

temperature e.g. liquid bitumen or non-hazardous chemicals with similar features. 


Its inner bag could be melted into bitumen, no damage to bitumen quality, and is environment friendly and convenient for operation. 

Compared with general-purpose flexitank, LAF HTR Fexitank could withstand max. 120℃ filling temperature

safe and durable for liquid bitumen or similar products transport.

Save Packaging and Storage Cost

HTR Flexitank is the most economic package for containerized liquid bitumen transport. Compared to drums and jumbo bags, 

HTR Flexitank does not need any pallet, frame cage, saving packaging cost directly; and after fully loaded with liquid bitumen, 

the HTR Flexitank could be transported after 24hrs cooling down, it does not need a peculiar yard or a warehouse to store and cool down. 

Environmentally Friendly  

At destination after bitumen discharge, all the materials could be collected, recycled for resin production or reused for other purpose. 

This can help to reduce rigid waste originated from bitumen transport with drums.
